As part of its long-term commitment to sustainability and transparency, DyStar has recently released its first annual sustainability report. The report relates to the Group's 2010 activities and was further built on its first Carbon Footprint Report which was published in August this year.

As a leading dyestuff manufacturer, DyStar is committed to operating in a socially and environmentally responsible manner. Its sustainability strategy aims to create value for all stakeholders; and the release of the report demonstrates and reinforces the Group's commitment to sustainability and transparency.

The report covers the following areas:
• Sustainable products and services
• REACH compliance
• Energy
• Greenhouse gas emissions
• Water
• Wastewater
• Waste
• Occupational health and safety
• Employees
• Economic performance

The Group's 2010 Sustainability Report reveals what DyStar as a company is doing to reduce its impact on the environment, make its workplace safer and help its customers reduce their environmental impact with its innovative products and services.

It contains policies and practices that are aimed at running the Group's business responsibly. It also talks about the future course of action for DyStar.

Announcing the release of the report, Steve Barron, the Group's CEO commented, “As a responsible company we are committed to an open and transparent dialogue with all our stakeholders to harness ideas and suggestions to improve the Group's sustainability performance.”

DyStar 2010 Sustainability Report was prepared in accordance with the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) guidelines, the internationally recognized standard for sustainability reporting.

DyStar, with a heritage of over 100 years of both product and application innovation, was founded in 1995 as a coloration specialist for the textile industry. Since then, the company has transformed itself into a solution provider, offering customers a complete range of colorants, auxiliaries, as well as state of the art color communication and textile testing.
