DuPont Performance Building Solutions and Corian®️ Design: Ready to Build the Future

Home. There’s no place like it. And our home–  our planet is changing.  At DuPont Performance Building Solutions and Corian®️ Design, we are committed to facing the climate crisis with our eyes wide open. We are resolved to reach our own sustainability goal of reducing our emissions by 75% by 2030 (based on 2019 levels) while equipping the building industry with products and tools that will be critical in reaching net-zero by 2050 and avoid the worst impacts of climate change.

 
 
 

The biggest sustainability problems can’t be solved without big contributions from the building and construction industry. Solving these problems calls for sweeping transformation in today’s building practices. As DuPont Performance Building Solutions and Corian® Design, we’re up to the challenge, and have charted a course to help make sustainability a reality in the building industry over the next decade. Inspired by the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (UN SDGs), and in support of the DuPont 2030 Sustainability Goals, we are committed to deliver solutions that help solve climate change, drive the circular economy, deliver safer solutions and help communities thrive.

Our Core Sustainability Beliefs

 

As recognized by the UN SDGs, this decade is critical for the world to make a significant pivot toward living, making and building more sustainably. As DuPont Performance Building Solutions (PBS) and Corian® Design, we want to be ahead of this curve — helping lead the transition to truly sustainable building practices. Our beliefs set the foundation for not only our 2030 commitments, but for our overall business strategy — one that we can be proud of, one that will help deliver the changes that are needed for a brighter, thriving future.

 

 
 
 

How we define sustainability

We believe that sustainability means 10 billion people living well — and well within the limits of the planet’s resources.
 

 
 
 

What sustainability means to the building industry

We believe that all people should have the opportunity to live, work, and play in buildings that are safe, affordable, and resilient.

 
 
 

Where we’re at today – much work to do

We believe that an urgent societal transition is required to achieve sustainability. Business has both the ability and the responsibility to help lead this change.

We believe that a shared vision and true partnerships across all sectors of society are needed to deliver this transition.
