Lessons from DSM’s Winning Sustainability Strategy

The roots of global specialty chemicals company Royal DSM are as a Dutch state-owned coal mining company that started in 1902. The company’s future, however, is far removed from its past. DSM’s Strategy 2021 describes how the company plans to drive above-market growth through developing innovative solutions addressing Nutrition & Health, Climate & Energy and Resources & Circularity, together with increased customer-centricity and large innovation projects. In this article, DSM’s approach is decomposed by looking at the elements of its sustainability strategy, and we provide tips how to replicate this.

Assess Your Own ESG Performance

ESG index funds are proving to be more crisis-proof than their less sustainable peers: with the average ESG fund falling by a mere 12.2% in 2020, almost half the decline of the S&P 500 according to Bloomberg. With the 2019 net money flows into these funds estimated to have almost quadrupled compared to 2018, companies are well-advised to advance their ESG performance. To help you do just that, this article provides four elementary questions and gives access to a newly launched online self-assessment, the ESG Acceleration Scan.

How to integrate environmental and social impacts into strategic decision making

ESG Acceleration Webinar: Impact Valuation

Impact measurement and valuation bring sustainability into the arena of strategic decision making, as it enables companies to manage risks, optimise costs and seize opportunities. However, many executives do not yet understand what impact valuation means, or fail to recognise its application beyond a theoretical exercise for reporting. In partnership with PRé Sustainability, this webinar explains the potential that the approach brings for integrating environmental and social impacts into business cases and strategic planning.

This means that partnering is to become a part of the company DNA. By forging and maintaining partnerships, companies can achieve more sustainability impact while also gaining the competitive advantage they seek. Several sustainability leaders such as Novozymes, DSM and Umicore have made partnering centric to their sustainability program. In this article, the example of Carlsberg illustrates how this can lead to tangible results.
