Dutch ingredients giant, DSM, has won the highest recommendation from environmental and social standards watchdog, the Global Reporting Initiative, which ranks companies on sustainability initiatives.

DSM said it had already met its 2010 climate and energy targets and reduced its greenhouse emissions by 30 per cent in 2008, compared to carbon output in 2005, an amount equivalent to the carbon dioxide absorbed by all the trees in the Netherlands.

The company continued to work to ease malnutrition in the developing world – its MixMe micronutrient sachets had been dispensed to 250,000 people in Nepal, Bangladesh and Kenya via the World Food Programme.

Jan Zuidam, Deputy Chairman of the DSM Managing Board, said: "The current economic climate should not divert our attention from the long term issues confronting our world, which involve securing sustainable energy supplies, combating climate change and providing balanced food supplies and health for the globe's entire population.”
