CAMBRIDGE, England and CHICAGO, October 25, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --

The science-based company active in health, nutrition and materials has
selected and implemented cr edit 360 's sustainability data management system
to gather, analyse and communicate company-wide environmental data.

Sustainability is an important and integral part of the DSM Strategy. KPIs on
energy efficiency and greenhouse gases are at the highest level in the
organisation. Environmental data, so-called 'Planet Data', have been part of
the DSM People, Planet, Profit (Triple P) Report since the early 1990s. Over
the past two years, this information has been presented together with
financial data in the company's integrated annual report, underlining DSM's
commitment to sustainability performance.

cr edit 360 's web-based sustainability solution is being implemented across
the entire DSM business to collect data from over 110 sites in over 40
countries. Environmental data are gathered right down at the production line
level to distinguish between multiple business groups operating in a single
site. The cr edit 360 system aggregates this data for efficient reporting by
either geography or business group.

DSM's carbon footprint will be calculated using cr edit 360 's Carbon
Disclosure Project (Gold Standard) accredited system, which includes a library
of emission factors and also provides the flexibility to maintain company
specific factors down at the individual site level where required.

Increasingly, companies are seeking to professionalise their sustainability
data management by moving away from resource-intensive and error-prone Excel
processes to specialist software solutions. It's a confusing marketplace for
potential buyers of sustainability software, with familiar (big) software
brands and smaller, heavily funded start-ups. cr edit 360 sets itself apart
with heritage and specialism. Mark Shields, Managing Director of cr edit 360 ,
notes, "We specialise in sustainability software, and most of the team have
worked in this field for many years; in short, we understand the issues, and
this helps us understand our clients. We believe this is why over 30 companies
selected  cr edit 360   in the past year alone."
