enablers rather than a threat.
But people are dynamic, not
static. So as our digital journey
evolves, we need to be conscious that we keep our people
on board and supportive. Sharing success stories and recognizing the people behind these
successes helps a great deal.
Can digitalisation support
sustainability? How?
Digitalisation and sustainability are intimately linked. As an
organization where sustainability is a core value and a key

business driver, digitalisation
helps us to speed up the development of sustainable solutions to conventional market
alternatives. Take DSM Niaga,
which enables waste reduction
and minimizing the depletion
of natural resources through
their range of fully recyclable
products, from our Again carpet collection to mattresses
and beyond. Our digital capabilities helped DSM Niaga to
significantly reduce the timeto-market of their solutions by
implementing prediction mod-

els based on 3D image analysis
of CT-scans.
In what way has DSM incorporated sustainable thinking into its digitalisation
process?
At DSM, we believe so strongly
in sustainability that our business strategy is based on the
United Nations Sustainable
Development Goals As such,
it's not a question of sprinkling
a bit of sustainability into our
digital transformation - rather, the two go together, hand-

in-hand. A nice example of
how digitisation supports our
sustainability efforts, can be
found in our automotive solutions. We now apply computer-aided design engineering
technology to develop and design novel performance materials. Predictive fatigues modelling for reinforced polyamide
parts, for example, can simulate parts' performance under
stress, reducing the need for
material testing; in particular
multiple
''design-build-testlearn'' cycles.
