DSM South Asia organizes Sustainability Conclave; bolsters its food system commitments

Royal DSM, a global purpose-led science-based company active in Nutrition, Health and Sustainable Living, organized ANH Sustainability Conclave on 23rd September 2021 with an aim to advocate the need for sustainability in animal protein production.

The Conclave provided a platform for leaders to come together and bolster DSM’s strategic food system commitments. With its set of measurable commitments announced last week, DSM is striving to ensure double-digit on-farm livestock emission reductions by 2030. The Conclave was marked by the presence of eminent speakers including B.Rajagopal, President DSM India; Riad Meddeb, UNDP Representative; Ivo Lansbergen, President DSM ANH; David Nickell, VP Sustainability DSM ANH; Carlos Saviani, Manager Sustainability DSM ANH; Justin Wang, Regional Vice President DSM ANH GAPAC; Rajeev Murthy, Head DSM ANH South Asia and other representatives.

B.Rajagopal, President, DSM India said “We at DSM have accepted the challenge to make animal farming sustainably possible. We believe that science and innovation can unlock the true value of sustainability and with public-private collaborations, the industry can achieve tangible, measurable improvements in the sustainability of animal farming.”

Riad Meddeb, UNDP Representative said “The pandemic has increased the burden on agri-food systems. It is time to accelerate pace towards realising the UN Sustainable Development Goals which are a call to action towards a better and sustainable future. The agriculture industry must embrace the digital revolution and leverage data-driven farming to increase productivity, efficiency and profits. By providing a platform for the industry to collaborate, UNDP’s Global Centre in Singapore is an effort in the direction to devise sustainable solutions globally.”

Rajeev Murthy, Head DSM ANH South Asia said “The production systems must gear up as consumers increasingly demand for sustainable products. With our expertise and commitment towards a sustainable future, we, at DSM, are set to play a crucial role in the sustainable transformation of the industry.”

With more than 4 billion people in the world interconnected digitally,[1] the awareness of global issues has trickled down to every consumer in every nation. For organisations to grow in this changing landscape, striving to address societal and environmental challenges must be in the vanguard of all strategies. As a step in the direction to lead a change, DSM launched its strategic initiative “We Make It Possible” last year aimed at accelerating a robust and achievable transformation in sustainable animal protein production. The initiative focuses on – improving lifetime performance of farm animals, reducing food loss and waste, reducing emissions from livestock, making efficient use of natural resources, reducing reliance on marine resources, and helping tackle antimicrobial resistance.

Underlining its commitment to the “We Make It Possible” initiative, DSM recently launched Sustell™, the first of its kind intelligent sustainability service, which combines an advanced, powerful sustainability calculation tool that utilizes real farm data, with expert knowledge and tailor-made, practical solutions and business development projects to unlock the value of sustainability.
