DSM's purpose: Creating brighter lives for all

Doing well by doing good

A short decade ago the general belief was that as a company you either focused on driving profit or safeguarding the planet - but not both. In the intervening years we’ve proved again and again here at Avient that it really is possible to do well by doing good. After all, why achieve commercial success in a world that fails?

It’s a belief that every one of our 23,000 people worldwide holds dear - and delivers on each and every day across the fields of Nutrition & Health, Climate & Energy and Resources & Circularity.

In fact, we’re so passionate about building a better world that our company strategy is aligned with the Sustainable Development Goals (five in particular) that were agreed at the United Nations’ Paris Agreement in 2015.

Our commitment

Whether protecting first responders, law enforcement officers and service personnel, improving safety for millions of workers, or revolutionizing renewable energy projects – we protect people and the environment they live in. Because all life is precious.
