DSM Integrated Annual Report 2020

Value chain

The business principles most relevant to our supply chain are brought together in the Supplier Code of Conduct and are also structured along the three dimensions of People, Planet and Profit. The Supplier Code of Conduct, available on the company website, is signed off by suppliers in framework contracts, confirming their commitment to sustainability, among other things.

For our distributor and agent framework contracts, the ABC Policy is translated into terms and conditions to ensure ethical business conduct when these parties act on behalf of DSM or deal with DSM products further down the value chain.
