General information

Reporting period

The Sustainability section includes information from the combined entity for 12 months (DSM and Firmenich are reported as of 1 January 2023). The sustainability data in this Report cover all entities that belong to the scope of the Consolidated financial statements. If this is not the case this is mentioned specifically. As this is the first year of reporting for dsm-firmenich, no comparative data is available for 2022. For more information, see Sustainability statements.

The Sustainability Statements have been structured using the topics of a selection of the topical standards of the European Sustainability Reporting Standards (ESRS), however, they are not reported according to the ESRS Disclosure Requirements. We have actively participated in various consultations and engagements regarding the ESRS and collaborated on consultation feedback through groups such as the Dutch Accounting Standards Board (‘Raad van de Jaarverslaggeving’) since the first drafts were published in early 2022.

In 2023, dsm-firmenich performed a detailed gap assessment against the Disclosure Requirements of the ESRS to prepare ourselves for the legislation. The gap assessment indicated that we are aligned with a substantial part of the ESRS that are in our reporting scope. Through closing reporting gaps over 2024, we aim to achieve full compliance, taking into account the phase-in requirements.
