Royal DSM, a global science-based company in Nutrition, Health and Sustainable Living, announced today that it has set new science-based reduction targets for greenhouse gas emissions. DSM has committed to reducing 30% of its greenhouse gas emissions from direct production and purchased energy in absolute terms by 2030 compared to 2016. DSM will decouple emissions from its growth through energy efficiency measures and sourcing more renewable electricity. As a complementary target, DSM will be purchasing 75% of electricity from renewable sources by 2030, with 41% already being renewable in 2018.
