How can the public be sure that DuPont is practicing biotechnology safely?
We are personally and professionally committed to safety in all aspects of the work we do. We believe in rigorous internal testing and follow the stringent protocols established by the environmental bodies that review new biotech products. DuPont has also made a public commitment to use biotechnology safely. We realize that we are only able to realize – and deliver – the benefits of biotechnology through its safe use. In addition, we have made a public commitment to engage and listen to interested parties, including our critics, concerning biotechnology. We helped found, and participate in, www.gmoanswers.com, a platform where anyone can get their questions about GMOs answered. We believe this type of forum is vital if we are to better understand everyone's concerns and seek to collaborate on future solutions.
