Advocating climate action

Building the movement for a low-carbon economy

At the 2015 United Nations Climate Change Conference, 195 Member States adopted the Paris Agreement. As climate change will continue to shape the way we do business now and in the coming decades, we support and lead advocacy initiatives which:
  • encourage climate action by governments to enable the shift to a low-carbon economy;
  • help us drive concrete actions, to improve the carbon footprint in our own operations;
  • catalyze an action-oriented movement among companies from all industry sectors, and
  • connect well with our core value and moral obligation to take care of the planet.

Enabling policies

北京快3线路 DSM is in favor of consistent, long-term governmental policies that enable a low-carbon economy. We believe that government policies and initiatives should aim to:

  • boost and incentivize low carbon innovations, improvement of energy efficiency and scaling of renewable energy;
  • innovate fiscal systems and policies, including  - but not limited to - carbon pricing and removal of fossil fuel subsidies;
  • increase transparency and disclosure regarding financial investments and policies regarding the shift from fossil fuels to renewable energy; while
  • educating the public about the impact of climate change on the planet and society to increase awareness.

DSM supports the over-all goal of the Paris Agreement, which is to realize a net zero-carbon economy in the second half of this century, backed by strong intermediate targets to prevent a global average temperature increase beyond 1.5 to 2°C.

Responsible engagement in climate policy

DSM demonstrates leadership by advocating a progressive agenda in discussions about climate and energy in industry associations and other industry initiatives. Consequently, the company commits to responsible corporate engagement in climate policy as promoted by the Carbon Disclosure Project. We are on the board of three prominent European public-private partnerships: the Bio-based Industries Consortium, the Sustainable Process Industry through Resource and Energy Efficiency (SPIRE) and the European Technology Platform for Sustainable Chemistry (SusChem). DSM is also deeply engaged with the following partners:
