Dimitri de Vreeze

Co-CEO & Member of the Managing Board
DSM

DSM is a global purpose-led, science-based company 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 belief 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. We have made sustainability-driven growth a core part of DSM’s business model. After all, why achieve commercial success in a world that fails?

To make the world a brighter place, we need to pull together. Through new collaborations, solutions and initiatives we have a major opportunity to create a more sustainable world tomorrow. Therefore, DSM is a proud founding member of the Dutch Sustainable Growth Coalition (DSGC). 

Together we advocate for sustainability as a core value, a key responsibility, and an important business driver, contributing to the UN Sustainable Development Goals. To accelerate the transition in the Netherlands and abroad, we help with recommendations and enthusiastically exchange knowledge, good practices and lessons we learned in the areas of energy supply, sustainable resource use, and food systems.
