Supply Chain

Translating DuPont Core Values to Expectations for Suppliers

We are committed to reducing our footprint, taking care of our people, and operating in a safe and ethical manner. As a global company operating in more than 90 countries, we understand that to truly advance these values we must collaborate with our partners and suppliers. Our Supplier Code of Conduct  serves as the backbone for how we engage suppliers around our core values. Our goal is that our suppliers, who are integral to DuPont, will embrace these values and share our commitment to sustainability.

Our Supplier Code of Conduct:

  • Addresses not only workplace safety, but also the safety of the products our suppliers provide us, and includes setting safety and health goals.
  • Points suppliers to the environmental stewardship principles of Responsible Care® and encourages them to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, manage water use, improve energy and resource efficiency, and waste reduction, as well as integrate renewable energy into their own supply chains.
  • Requires compliance with rules and laws, but also sets expectations for the highest ethical behavior when doing business with and on behalf of DuPont.
  • Outlines our commitment to the tenets of the UN Global Compact regarding worker treatment. It also includes the value of diversity and inclusion in the workforce as well as in the supply chain, and our belief that creating an environment of professionalism, dignity and respect fosters engagement, innovation and excellence.
