Who we are as a company is the result of strategic choices that we have made. These in turn are based on our mission and our core value; they define what we believe in and how we go about our business.
Our purpose is to create brighter lives for people today and generations to come. We connect our unique competences in Life Sciences and Materials Sciences to create solutions that nourish, protect and improve performance.
Our core value
Our mission is supported by our core value: Sustainability. Everything we do should contribute to a more sustainable world. To us, achieving sustainability means simultaneously pursuing economic performance, environmental quality and social responsibility. In other words, we strive to create value on the three dimensions of People, Planet and Profit simultaneously.
We want to make a positive difference. Health, Nutrition and Materials represent the three fields in which we use technology and products to provide solutions to brighten the lives of people today and generations to come.
Our health solutions cover everything from advanced biomedical devices that help people live active lives for longer to health-enhancing nutritional ingredients.
Our human and animal nutrition solutions include vitamins and carotenoids, taste enhancers and other food processing ingredients, unique animal feed additives and hair and skin care ingredients. We’re also a partner of the UN World Food Programme.
Our materials solutions include a number of increasingly green thermoplastics and resins for use in everything from vehicles to paints to sports equipment to fiber optic coatings, not to mention Dyneema®, the world’s strongest fiber™.
