Meeting Global Challenges with Innovation and Collaboration

DuPont is a science company. We work collaboratively to find sustainable, innovative, market-driven solutions to solve some of the world’s biggest challenges, making lives better, safer and healthier for people everywhere. Between now and 2050, the world’s population will climb to 9 billion. This increasingly complex world is creating overwhelming demands for needs as diverse as more plentiful, healthier food, renewably-sourced advanced materials, ample energy, and better infrastructure and transportation. Our priorities in Agriculture & Nutrition, Bio-Based Industrials and Advanced Materials, as well as our Innovation Delivery System, enable us to address these challenges better than any other company—but we cannot do it alone. The answers will be found through collaboration with academic institutions, governments, other companies and NGOs. Working together, we can find better ways to meet the world’s growing food, energy and protection needs. This is the merging of collaboration and innovation. At DuPont we call this “inclusive innovation.”
