In preparing the report, DyStar has followed the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) guidelines, the internationally recognised standard for sustainability reporting. This year’s report also includes Dystar’s performance on the United Nations Global Compact (UNGC) Ten Principles that the company endorsed last year.

“One of the main objectives of this report is to communicate our company’s social and environmental performance and what we are doing to make improvements” says Harry Dobrowolski CEO, DyStar Group. The report also explains what we consider to be the most material issues for our business and how our sustainable business strategy creates value for both the stakeholders and the shareholders”.

The report not only reinforces our commitment to operating in a socially and environmentally responsible and transparent manner but also explains how our products and services reduce our customers’ environmental impact and make their operations safer and cleaner, noted Dr Charu Jain – Global Sustainability Manager, DyStar Group.

The report includes comprehensive data, examples and case studies that describe DyStar’s sustainability performance and approach across a number of areas including ethics and compliance, product stewardship, energy, greenhouse gas emissions, water, wastewater, waste, occupational health and safety, employees, society and business.
