DSM bases its sustainability reporting on best practice standards and international guidelines. Most important are the guidelines of the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI). For this report, the company used the GRI G4 guidelines, launched in 2013. A detailed overview of how DSM reports according to the G4 comprehensive indicators, including a reference to relevant sections in this report, is provided on the company's website. DSM aligns with the recommendations of the International Integrated Reporting Council (IIRC) Framework where possible.
