Our 2025 Sustainability Targets

Making big changes requires vision and action. Our ambitious targets serve as the destination for our Run The Relay initiative.

2021 Levels

Targets By 2025

Our vision shows us the possibilities of making what’s better for the people better for the planet. To that end, our targets span four critical focal points: Carbon Emission, Waste, Renewable Energy and Water.

0 %

Carbon Emissions

50% of our carbon emissions will be reduced through a multi-faceted approach.

0 %

Recycled Waste

100% of our in-house foam waste will be recycled and reused in production process.

Renewable Energy

Use renewable energy to power our production facilities sustainably.

0 %

Water Conservation

80% of our freshwater usage will be cut to maximize our water conservation.

Producing Zero Waste

Instead of throwing production scraps into the landfill, we will recycle 100% of our in-house waste by safely reusing it in the next production cycle.

Partner Recycle Program

To meet our customers’ demand for recycled materials, we’ve created a waste recycling program with our partners in Vietnam to recycle additional production waste from their factories.

Material Innovation

A huge step toward meeting our 2025 zero-waste goal came from our R&D team, which successfully developed a foam material that is made from 100% recycled PU waste—the Dreamcell ZERO.

Closed-loop Manufacturing

We’ve utilized closed-loop manufacturing in our product development for 50 years. We store in-house production waste, then regrind and reuse this recycled material in the next production cycle.

Renewable Energy

We are using solar energy to power lights, air conditioning, and hot water in multiple factories across southeast Asia. To further reduce our GHG emissions, DSC is continually working to widen the scope of its solar energy program to supply power for factory operations.


We are implementing both water-saving devices and rain harvesting systems in our facilities in Asia in order to minimize freshwater usage. As we scale this critical water preservation and recycling infrastructure, we project that the percentage of freshwater we’re saving can be reduced by 80% by 2025.
