Last year marked the seventh year of DyStar’s journey towards reducing production footprint by 20 per cent for every ton of production. This goal encompasses the resources used for production including energy, water, and raw materials as well as addresses their corresponding outputs – greenhouse gas emissions, waste and wastewater.
Intensive efforts are underway to ensure that the company’s less efficient acquisitions are provided the essential support to align with the rest of the company. As a part of DyStar’s long-term goal to imbed sustainability across the industry, the company will also be focusing on expanding its sustainability services. This includes the opening of more Texanlab offices, an ISO 17025 certified, specialised testing laboratory across South Asia to provide end-to-end solutions throughout the whole supply chain.
To encourage and facilitate sustainable practices among its suppliers, DyStar also conducts sustainability-related supplier surveys. To help meet clients’ demand and demonstrate its responsibility and care in the food and beverages industry, DyStar is implementing a supplier diversity program to support businesses in the US that are at least 51 per cent owned by minority groups, women, veterans and people with disabilities.
