’We are proud to be once again amongst the global top leaders in the Dow Jones Sustainability World Index,’ said  Feike Sijbesma, CEO and chairman of DSM . ‘For Royal DSM, sustainability is not only a responsibility and a core value, but also an important business driver. By converting crop residue into advanced green biofuels, increasing solar panel yields and reducing the weight of cars we demonstrate every day that sustainability is an integral part of our business and a key differentiator for our customers.’
