Sustainability

Our approach to sustainability

Stefan P. Butz, CEO

“As a Swiss company deeply rooted in Asia for more than 150 years, being a responsible corporate citizen has always been part of the DKSH mindset. 

Our business as a Market Expansion Services provider is built on integrity, trust and reliability. These values are deeply engrained in our culture and an integral part of our unique selling proposition.

Our approach to sustainability is to leverage our extensive network to further economic and social progress in the markets we operate in. 

As a preferred outsourcing partner for renowned international clients, we need to maintain transparency and engage with our business partners to meet growing expectations.

As a company with a long-term focus, we are committed to continue on this path.”

Stefan P. Butz, CEO

Throughout our more than 150 years of history, being a responsible corporate citizen has been the foundation of our success. At DKSH, we do business in a way that is profitable while also delivering long-term value creation. 

We are currently formalizing our approach to corporate responsibility through a review of the sustainability issues that are most material to our business, to help DKSH leverage sustainability challenges into increased profitability and long-term growth. 

The following guiding principles support DKSH’s commitment to corporate responsibility and sustainability. By integrating these principles into all aspects of how our business is conducted, we not only better manage risks and opportunities, but also meet the evolving needs of our internal and external stakeholders.

  • As a services company, people are our greatest asset. Their last-mile dedication, can-do attitude and passion drives the long-term success of our business 
  • We strive to continuously create value for our stakeholders to achieve sustainable, profitable and inclusive growth. We do this to be able to invest and innovate, create employment opportunities and pay attractive returns on invested capital
  • We strive to maintain the highest professional standards and ethical values through compliance with our Code of Conduct
  • We are committed to conducting our business in a manner that respects the rights and dignity of everyone affected by our business activities
  • We seek to minimize the environmental and ecological impact of our activities along the value chain 
  • We are deeply rooted in the communities we serve and, through our activities in Asian countries, we create opportunities and developments across society
