Doing our part to create a more sustainable world
Our purpose — to empower the world with the essential innovations to thrive — is our commitment to society. We will use our passion and proven expertise in science and innovation to create sustainable solutions for the complex challenges facing our world.
Our sustainability framework has three interconnected strategic focus areas: Innovations to Thrive, Sustainable Operations, and People and Well-being.
Strong performance across all three dimensions will enable us to boldly embrace our renewed purpose and maximize the impact DuPont science can bring to the world.
Innovation that delivers on price and performance, is safer for people and planet and positively contributes to advancing global environmental and social challenges
Reducing our greenhouse gas emissions, improving our energy management processes and increasing our use of renewable energy
Managing and disclosing the health, safety and environmental impacts of products for all lifecycle stages
Understanding and managing water quality and scarcity issues across our global sites
Redesigning, recycling, reusing and remanufacturing products, components and raw materials to keep them at their highest value use for as long as possible
Safeguarding and protecting our employees and communities by promoting health, safety and wellness
Right now, we're creating sustainable solutions to society’s most pressing challenges.
We're working with our customers to tackle global challenges and bring life-enhancing solutions to market.
Delivering end-to-end world-class performance in safety, resource efficiency and environmental protection.
Operating sustainably goes beyond optimizing our own footprint. We partner with suppliers, customers and other businesses to reduce environmental impacts across the value chain.
Enabling the health and well-being of people and communities and advance diversity and inclusion in our workforce and beyond.
Our employees, our communities, and people everywhere deserve to be healthy and safe. We work to make sure both our presence and our products create a positive impact in the lives of people everywhere.
Transparency is a vital component of our corporate sustainability strategy. Each year, we submit our climate and water performance to the CDP (formerly Carbon Disclosure Project), and make available other documents and certificates that our stakeholders may find useful.
Position statements represent DuPont’s informed views and opinions on industry-related issues. They cover a range of topics that reinforce our commitment to sustainable growth and are important to stakeholders.

Expectant mothers can wake up to a wellness report of their unborn child and be notified if fetal heartbeat and movement are within acceptable ranges with the new Owlet Band, winner of two CES awards in the categories of Wearable Technology and Tech to Change the World. Specialized sensors housed in a fabric band that sits around the mother's abdomen track fetal heart rate and kick count, sending real-time data to a smartphone.
The agreement, supported by an initial investment of more than one million euros mainly made by DuPont, exemplifies the concept of circular economy and will lead to significant reductions in energy, water and transport consumption for both companies.
