At DuPont, we work hard to understand the needs of land and vegetation managers, helping them meet the challenges of a growing world.

Our innovative solutions focus on minimizing environmental impact and preserving precious natural resources. We observe the highest ethical and stewardship standards as we work with land managers, livestock producers, trade channel partners, scientific and regulatory communities and society at large.

What is Product Stewardship?

DuPont defines product stewardship as an integrated business process for identifying, managing and reducing risks to safety, health and environmental through all stages of a product’s life in the best interests of our stakeholders: customers, employees, shareholders and society.

Product stewardship requires constant collaboration with land managers and industry partners to address emerging needs for the products and services that DuPont develops and supplies.

Product Stewardship Best Practices

An important component of stewardship is training. Our business does not end with creating innovative products, but includes informing and educating stakeholders on sound stewardship principles.

The DuPont Crop Protection Land Management Stewardship Learning Series has been developed with training modules that address product stewardship best practices in day-to-day use of pesticide products.

The learning modules cover topics focused on pesticide product stewardship. Learners will have access to more resources that will give them deeper knowledge and awareness of pesticide product stewardship.
