Netherlands based Royal DSM has been named the worldwide leader in the 'Materials' industry group in the Dow Jones Sustainability World Index. DSM said it has been recognised for integrating sustainability into its business, having been named among the global leaders in each of the last 13 years and holding the number one position in the sector seven times.

DSM has identified three key focus areas in sustainability where its core business competencies closely intersect with identified global societal trends that are affecting people, economies and markets, largely driven by demographic change, which are Nutrition, Climate Change, Circular Economy and Bio-based materials.

“DSM is working closely together with cross-sector partners to further develop sustainable growth platforms in these areas,” the science-based company active in health, nutrition and materials said.

“We are very proud to again be named the global leader in the Dow Jones Sustainability World Index,” Feike Sijbesma, CEO and chairman of the DSM managing board said. “For DSM, sustainability is more than a responsibility; it is our company's core value and an important business driver.”

Fortune Magazine recently included DSM in its 2016 'Çhange the World' list of 50 companies worldwide that are making an important social or environmental impact through their profit-making strategy and operations. (AR)
