Leading from the front

External recognition

Proud to play our part

At DSM, we’ve long been advocates for societal change, and we believe strongly in playing our full part in shaping and influencing the world. Which is why we’re very proud whenever we receive external recognition.


Changing the world

Fortune magazine honored us not once, but twice in 2018. First our then CEO (and now Honorary Chairman) Feike Sijbesma was named in the top 50 World’s Greatest Leaders for his vision in evolving DSM into a company built on sustainability. Then (for the third year running) DSM was named in the Fortune Change the World list - an annual recognition of companies that have a positive social impact.

Number one in sustainability

The leading ratings agency for environmental, social & corporate governance, Sustainalytics, has rated DSM number one in its industry sector for two years in a row.

A worthy winner

The magazine for ‘clean capitalism’, Corporate Knights, includes DSM in its top 100 Sustainable Corporations.

And the list goes on…

The BioEconomy Leadership Award; the Nutrition Promotion & Contribution Award; the World Resources Institute; the Carbon Discolsure Project; the FTSE4Good Index; the Ethical Corporation Responsible Business Awards; the Deauville Green Awards…the list really does goes on.?
