DSM gains Carbon Trust Standard in Scotland


Royal DSM N.V., the global Life Sciences and Materials Sciences company headquartered in the Netherlands, said its Scotland-based vitamin manufacturing facility has been awarded the Carbon Trust Standard certification.


The facility is the only Western manufacturer of vitamin C and produces the vitamin under the brand name Quali-C.


DSM joins a select group of the first twelve "Pathfinder" companies to be awarded the Carbon Trust Standard.


The Carbon Trust Standard is the world's first accreditation scheme designed to allow companies to measure the carbon footprint of their operations and facilitate an independent, specialist review of energy management practices.


The award requires organizations to provide evidence on real reductions in their own carbon dioxide emissions rather than paying third parties to reduce emissions via off-setting or green tariffs.


The Standard is awarded by The Carbon Trust, an independent organization set up by the UK Government in 2001 to accelerate the move to a low carbon economy.


Royal DSM N.V. creates innovative products and services for animal nutrition and health.
