Royal DSM N.V., the global Life Sciences and Materials Sciences company headquartered in the Netherlands, today announces the opening of its DSM China Campus in the Zhangjiang Hi-Tech Park in Pudong New Area, Shanghai. The Campus will advance local research and development competence and as it is one of the first LEED Gold-certified buildings in China, it will become a symbol of DSM's sustainable development in China.

As DSM China's regional headquarters, the opening of DSM China Campus marks a new phase of development and innovation in China for DSM. The DSM China Campus contains all DSM Shanghai offices, as well as several business groups and the DSM China R&D Centre. The Campus is DSM's largest and most important research facility outside Europe and the USA, and is intended to act as an incubator for DSM's local innovation competence.

Jan Zuidam, Deputy Chairman of the DSM Managing Board, said: "We know China not only as a market and a production base, but also as a strategic starting point for research and development. In DSM's accelerated vision 2010 with focus on Life Sciences and Materials Sciences China plays an important role regarding growth and innovation."

LEED Gold Certified Building:
The new campus has a total floor area of 26,000 sqm and has space for more than 600 employees. DSM has implemented the requirements of LEED Gold certification in the whole process of design and operation, such as location selection, transportation, water and energy saving, indoor environmental quality, renewable and locally available building and decoration materials, waste and recycling during construction and daily operation, enabling the campus to be one of the first buildings in China with LEED Gold certification.

DSM China President Dr Jiang Weiming said: "As one of the most sustainable companies in our sector, we are committed to great achievements in sustainable development. We have been among the leaders in the Chemical Industry section of the Dow Jones Sustainability Index for five years in a row. The environmental design standards we have adopted for the campus embody our consistent excellence in sustainable development.

We are responsible for providing a healthy and safe 'green home' for our employees, and I believe it will be a new start for our contribution to sustainable development in the fields of Life Sciences and Materials Sciences in China."

DSM is currently involved in 9 joint ventures, 16 wholly-owned foreign enterprises, 2 branch companies and 5 branch offices in China, employing nearly 4,000 people.
