Commitment to a better future

Sustainability is a common thread that runs through everything that Nordmann partner DSM does – and has been doing for years.

The power of nature

In addition to the focus on environmental protection, the role of natural products has also been growing in importance over the years. DSM has responded to the increasing level consumer demand for these and today offers a broad and diversified portfolio that features raw materials such as the ALPAFLOR® or PENTAVITIN® products which all come from natural sources.

Transparency and traceability

In order to report openly to customers about the sustainability of its products, DSM works with independent organizations such as the Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP), Ecovadis and SEDEX. In conjunction with external evaluations, the company has also introduced initiatives such as the “DSM House of Naturals” or “DSM Imp’ACT Card™”. These tools make it possible to measure the current eco-footprint of DSM’s ingredients against specific criteria and to pass this information on to customers.

In the long term, DSM aims to offer complete transparency and traceability across all of its supply chains.

Renewable energies

Another of DSM’s long-term goals is to operate fully on renewable energy sources, depending on their availability in the various countries the company produces in.

At a glance:

  • 2019: DSM purchases 50% of its electricity from renewable energy sources
  • 2030: DSM plans to purchase 75% of its electricity from renewable sources
