Our purpose

Creating brighter lives for all

DSM is a global purpose-led, science-based company specializing in Nutrition, Health & Sustainable Living. Our purpose is to create brighter lives for all. We achieve it by using all the scientific and innovation power at our disposal to tackle some of the world’s greatest challenges - creating value for customers, shareholders, our people, and society-at-large.

A short decade ago the general consensus was that as a company you either focused on driving profit or safeguarding the planet – but not both. In the intervening years we’ve proved again and again here at DSM that it really is possible to do well by doing good. After all, why achieve commercial success in a world that ultimately fails?

It’s a belief that every one of our 23,000 people worldwide holds dear - and delivers on each and every day across the fields of Nutrition & Health, Climate & Energy and Resources & Circularity.

In fact, we are so passionate about building a better world that our company strategy is now aligned with the Sustainable Development Goals (five in particular) that were agreed at the United Nations’ Paris Agreement in 2016.

Purpose-led, performance-driven

To make our ambitions of boosting economic prosperity, environmental progress and societal advancement a reality, we’ll continue to be purpose-led and performance-driven.

It’s the best way we know to ensure that we keep growing, and that our bright science continues to create solutions that make life brighter for people everywhere – both today and for generations to come.
