partnerships and corporate social responsibility respectively.

DSM, a world leader in vitamins and nutritional ingredients, has been active in helping to make progress towards achieving the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs). By partnering with the UN World Food
Program, DSM has made a commitment to fight hunger around the world and has been raising awareness of the pressing issue of malnutrition. DSM provides not only products but especially technical and scientific expertise and has developed tailored nutritional solutions that are specifically designed to meet the nutritional requirements
 of people in the developing world.

"It is an honor to receive this award as an acknowledgement of DSM’s commitment to addressing theissue of hidden hunger,”

said Feike Sijbesma, CEO of Royal DSM. “
 For me this award is given to all employees of DSM worldwide who are inspired and motivated to contribute to helping those people in
the world who need our help urgently. At DSM we feel that it is our responsibility to raise awareness of and
find solutions for nutrition security in order to improve the lives of millions of people in need andmobilize individuals, organizations and businesses around the world to act.”

At the United Nations Office for Partnerships, Amir Dossal, has done pioneering work in bringing together the public and private sectors to address global challenges through creative partnerships and
alliances. His ‘top down’ approach of engaging government leaders, captains of industry, leaders of civil society, and social entrepreneurs, through intellectual and emotional involvement on the Millennium
Development Goals, has resulted in well over
 1000 new initiatives over the last decade.

My colleagues and I are very grateful for this special recognition.
Our success only comes because of
the deep commitment of our partners, to make a lasting difference,”

said Amir Dossal, Executive Director
of the United Nations Office for Partnerships.

“We are very grateful for the opportunity to provide a
partnership platform and to serve as a voice for the voiceless.”
