Our approach to sustainability

Sustainability report 2021

For us, simply providing products is not enough. Of equal importance is how we conduct our business and what impact our activities have on our stakeholders. Providing access to markets and products as well as generating jobs is what we have always done, and by doing this in a reliable and responsible way we contribute to the development of markets and communities as well as to the UN Sustainable Development Goals.

“Sustainability” is one of our corporate values, and we bring it to life through our Sustainability Framework focusing on three pillars: Our People – Our Partners – Our Planet.

We have a clear governance structure for the management of Sustainability at DKSH, with the Board of Directors providing oversight as well as clear responsibilities and targets for the Executive Committee and Sustainability Committee. This supports our sustainability journey as well as fulfilling our purpose of enriching people’s lives.

How we practice sustainability in our business
