DSM N.V. : DSM among leaders in Dow Jones Sustainability World Index

Royal DSM, the global Life Sciences and Materials Sciences company, has been
named among the worldwide leaders in the Materials industry group in the Dow
Jones Sustainability World Index published today. Since 2004, DSM has been
named the leader in this sector six times and also named among the top
leaders six times.

Feike Sijbesma, CEO and Chairman of the DSM Managing Board, commented:"We are
proud to be once again amongst the global top leaders in the Dow Jones
Sustainability World Index. We congratulate
AkzoNobel
on being named the leader in our industry. For Royal DSM, sustainability is
not only a responsibility and a core value, but also an important business
driver
.
By converting crop residue into advanced green biofuels, increasing solar
panel yields and reducing the weight of cars
we demonstrate every day that sustainability is an integral part of our
business and a key differentiator for our customers."

DSM aims to create value over three dimensions simultaneously; economically,
environmentally and societal, named the Triple P approach
(People-Planet-Profit). DSM's business activities and results demonstrate
this every day.

DSM's so called, ECO+ products, of which the environmental impact is lower
than competing mainstream products that fulfill the same function, are an
increasingly important part of DSM's portfolio. The share of ECO+ products in
DSM's innovation pipeline is on track to achieve the 2015 aspiration of 80%.
The ECO+ share in our running business is today almost 50%, increased from
around 30% in 2010.

Examples are our enzymes for the cheese, baking and beverage industries,
making food products healthier whilst reducing the carbon footprint of their
production. Increasingly DSM contributes with its activities to the
sustainability drive in China.

The so called, People+ dimension, which DSM developed with 12 European
Industry leaders in 2014, is now a broadly accepted methodology for assessing
a product's social impact throughout its life cycle. People+ products
measurably improve the lives of end-users, employees and communities across
the value chain.

An example of a People+ innovation are synthetic chains made of Dyneema®fiber
used in harbors, meaning the harbor workers suffer less from back pain and
injuries and experience less noise compared to using heavy steel chains.

DSM is also addressing its own environmental and carbon footprint by reducing
its greenhouse gas emissions and becoming more energy efficient. DSM is on
track to reach its aspiration for a 20% energy efficiency improvement in
2020. DSM will also achieve its aspiration of a (absolute) reduction in
greenhouse gas emissions of 25% by 2020, compared to 2008. DSM will formulate
new targets by the end of 2015.
