DuPont Position Statement on Agricultural Biotechnology

Biotechnology holds a great deal of promise to enhance our lives and planet. With a world population expected to reach nine billion by 2050, biotechnology offers new potential for sustainable living, healthy eating and battling diseases while reducing our footprint on the planet.

DuPont is committed to sustainable growth through the application of science to create value for society and our shareholders.

We believe the broad field of biotechnology presents important opportunities that should be explored and developed to identify those safe and commercially viable applications that bring significant benefits to society. These opportunities arise in areas including food, materials, energy generation, polymers, sensors and electronics. Benefits may include lower cost, higher quality products and reduced reliance on fossil fuels along with other environmental benefits.
