DuPont Sustainable Solutions, a global operations consulting firm with extensive operations in South Africa, has announced it will operate under a new name: dss+ (pronounced ‘dss plus’).
Since DuPont Sustainable Solutions became an independent consulting firm after separating from DuPont in 2019, it has evolved and enhanced its capabilities through organic growth and the acquisition of three organisations to improve the breadth and depth of capabilities in operational excellence, sustainability, and ESG (Environmental, Social & Governance).
“dss⁺ has a solid history of providing expert process safety management and operational risk management services to many organisations in Africa,” said Rhyno Jacobs, Director of Sub-Saharan Africa for dss⁺. “Businesses are increasingly aware of the need to integrate transformative solutions to enhance the performance of their operations whilst protecting their people and assets and minimising their impact on the environment. The expansion of our offerings to include sustainability alongside our operational excellence and risk management services is a natural progression.”

Meeting the changing needs of clients
The dss+ purpose and commitment to protecting people remains at the core of the brand. To meet the changing needs of clients, dss+ has expanded its solutions to help companies across a variety of industries to protect, transform and sustain their operations. Through these expanded solutions, dss⁺ will help its clients build organisational and human capabilities, manage risk, improve operations, achieve sustainability goals and operate more responsibly.
Jacobs added, “it is very energising to see the commitment from leaders we are working with, particularly in the metals and mining industry, toward ensuring they use their resources safely, sustainably and efficiently. Our evolution to dss⁺ is a signal to the market that we are eager to support these changes.”
