ECO+ is DSM’s program for the development of sustainable, innovative products and solutions with ecological benefits. Products qualify as ECO+ when their environmental impact is better compared with competing mainstream products fulfilling the same function.
When considered over their entire life cycle, ECO+ solutions offer superior performance and a lower eco-footprint. DSM aims to increase the share of ECO+ solutions (products that offer clear ecological benefits versus the mainstream solutions they compete with) towards 50 per cent of total sales by 2015 and above 80 per cent in innovation.
People+ is DSM’s program to develop solutions that measurably improve the lives of consumers, employees and communities across the value chains. People+ offers new perspectives beneficial for new product development, value propositions and customer engagement. With People+, in combination with ECO+, it makes DSM’s brand promise ‘Bright Science, Brighter Living’ more tangible.
