Advancing our chemical management processes
In 2021, DuPont de Nemours Inc. implemented an enhanced corporate chemical management policy that details a framework and specific governance practices for managing substances of concern (SoC) globally. The framework is designed to evaluate scenario by scenario, specific and aggregated potential human health and environmental risks, product deselection risks, and risks to our right to operate associated with current and potential regulatory landscapes. The substance and product-based risk assessment outcomes provide a transparent view that support the governance for making informed decisions for excluding the use of a SoC within the development of new products, for discontinuing the use of a SoC in our existing portfolio, for framing risks assumed when considering acquisitions and for supporting the safe use and disposal of our products by our customers. Our enhanced focus on the management and governance of SoC also inherently contributes to our Corporate Sustainability Goals for Safer by Design.
DuPont Mobility & Materials developed MEGUM™ W 9500, a paint-like, heat reactive, water-based adhesive that establishes strong bonds between rubber and metal.
Our E&I Semiconductor Technologies site in Hsinchu, Taiwan, was recognized with the 2020 Green Chemistry Application and Innovation Award by the Taiwan Environmental Protection Agency for improvements in green chemistry processes.
