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 are an integral part of our vision to be the trusted partner for companies looking to grow their business in Asia and beyond.

Our approach to sustainability is to further our environmental, social and governance objectives in the local communities that we operate in – supporting our purpose to enrich people’s lives. 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.
