The DSGC is a CEO-led coalition of Dutch multinational corporations who proactively drive sustainable growth business models. We are convinced that significant innovations in fields such as energy supply, sustainable resource use, and food systems will offer the Netherlands a new outlook for the future – of sustainable prosperity and opportunities for all. As a driver and accelerator of this transition, the coalition aims to lead the way by pursuing a strategy of Shape, Share, and Stimulate:


Coalition members connect economic profitability with environmental and social progress on the basis of integrated sustainable growth business models. They continuously enforce sustainability within their own business models and value chains and play a catalyst role in their sectors.


The coalition advocates sustainable growth business models both internationally and nationally. Through publications and convenings we share knowledge, good practices and lessons learned with the broader business community, policymakers, investors and other stakeholders.


Coalition members aim to encourage the policy debate to promote the transition to a sustainable, circular economy. We aspire to be a coalition of thought leaders, providing valuable recommendations to government and EU policymakers so as to create the right framework conditions for sustainable and inclusive growth.


The Dutch Sustainable Growth Coalition (DSGC) unites FrieslandCampina, AkzoNobel, DSM, Heineken, KLM, Philips, Shell and Unilever. The coalition aims to promote sustainable growth business strategies in The Netherlands and abroad. These multinationals all share the conviction that long-term financial and economic value is inextricably linked to minimized environmental impact, social progress and inclusiveness.
