Our three sustainability commitments


We want to provide good and affordable nutrition that supports people’s health. Today, more than two billion people worldwide are lacking sufficient micronutrients like vitamins and minerals in their diet. At DSM, we’ve worked hand-in-hand for many years with partners like the World Food Program, UNICEF and World Vision to close the micronutrient gap by fortifying staple foods like rice and providing public health nutritional supplements to vulnerable populations. Today, we reach several hundred million people each year; but want to do more.


Animal-based proteins are highly nutritious and form a key part of a balanced, healthy diet. However, animal-sourced food production and agriculture is impacting nature and our climate. We intend to make animal farming more sustainable to enable better food, nutrition and health for all, within planetary boundaries. Our feed solutions play a key role in changing the livestock sector from within; for example by producing sustainable and nutritious new foods that put less pressure on our planet. We can help, for example, take a big chunk out of farm emissions by changing the feed that animals like cows eat every day.


We need to ensure that the farmers who produce our food can do so sustainably while actually benefitting from new farming practices. This can be achieved by rewarding farmers for applying the most sustainable methods; helping them grow healthy food; supporting them in securing a steady income; and all supported by training to help make it happen.
