In many cases, the end of the year gives you time to step back and take stock of the last 12 months.

DSM CEO to receive honorary doctorate

HEERLEN, THE NETHERLANDS -- (Marketwire) -- 12/07/12 -- Feike Sijbesma, CEO and Managing Board Chairman of Royal DSM, the global Life Sciences and Materials Sciences company, will receive an honorary doctorate from the University of Maastricht (Netherlands). The University is conferring this honor on Mr. Sijbesma because of the way he embodies DSM's core value, sustainability.

The University of Maastricht is celebrating its 37th Dies Natalis on 14 January 2013. To mark the occasion, it will confer honorary doctorates on five persons of high distinction, the day's theme being 'Inviting Excellence'. The University's Board of Governors has nominated Mr. Sijbesma in recognition of the way DSM is dealing with sustainability. For DSM, sustainability is a core value and a responsibility but increasingly also its main business driver. Mr. Sijbesma consistently advocates the importance of long term sustainability for global business.

DSM's operations integrate all aspects of sustainability. The company is involved in initiatives to fight climate change and develop alternative energy sources as well as in programs to promote global food and nutrition security. It has headed the Dow Jones Sustainability World Index many times and is a partner of the United Nations' World Food Programme. Mr. Sijbesma is strongly promoting the sustainability agenda, for example as chairman of the World Economic Forum's global agenda council on the role of business. On the integration of sustainability aspects he has been quoted as saying: "There is no contradiction or dilemma between shareholders and stakeholders. DSM is creating value for all stakeholders along the three dimensions of people, planet and profit. We have a long term commitment and work for people today and generations to come. We have an unwavering commitment to innovation, even in crisis times. These are our core values, since we cannot be successful, nor even call ourselves successful, in a world that fails."

According to Maastricht University's Board of Governors, these values coincide well with those of the University. In particular, the University shares DSM's concern for the next generations, both nationally and internationally.

The other four nominees besides Feike Sijbesma are Paul Crutzen, who won the Nobel Prize for chemistry in 1995 for his research on ozone depletion; Fred Gage, a prominent neuroscientist best known for his work on neural tissue transplants; Mohammad Hashem Pesaran, one of the world's foremost experts on econometrics; and Trevor Pinch, who is widely known for his research on musical technologies.
