DSM introduces new strategic initiative to transform global animal nutrition and health

pexels oziel gomez 1578445DSM Animal Nutrition and Health company has introduced a new strategic initiative: We Make it Possible

Its mission is to lead a robust and achievable transformation worldwide in sustainable animal protein production and to speed up solutions that will foster a brighter future.

DSM’s Animal Nutrition and Health President Ivo Lansbergen said, “For too long, sustainability has been someone else’s problem, a problem for tomorrow. But it is not an impossible challenge. We believe we can make animal farming sustainable. Our need is to be providing a decent living for farmers and affordable proteins to the world population, all while reducing the footprint of animal farming."

“Sustainability is in our DNA. We want to demonstrate our new vision, both within DSM and beyond, how we see the future of the farming industry and the role we want to play. This strategic initiative reflects our commitment not only to be part of the value chain but to be a change agent, steering the global conversations, connecting the various stakeholders of the farming ecosystem, thinking ahead, generating ideas and new ways of working. If not, now, when?”

Aligned with the UN Sustainable Development Goals 2, 3, 12, 13 and 14, the strategic initiative is driven by six sustainability platforms to address the major challenges facing the animal-farming sector.

These are: Improving the lifetime performance of farm animals; Improving the quality of food (i.e., meat, milk, fish, eggs), while reducing food loss and waste; Reducing emissions from livestock; Making efficient use of natural resources; Reducing the reliance on marine resources.

After many years of investment and innovation in scientific solutions aimed at providing real answers to the challenges facing the agriculture industry, the We Make It Possible strategic initiative comes along and marks not a new beginning but a significant acceleration of the journey towards a more sustainable future.
