Continuously improving our operational
footprint on the environment
We continue to strive for operational excellence and improved productivity while simultaneously reducing our environmental impact. Our Bold Energy Plan has enabled us to achieve more than 40% greenhouse gas (GHG) emission reductions over the past five years.
The primary mechanism we use for reducing our energy usage to manufacture DuPont™ Tyvek® is the Bold Energy Plan, a continuous improvement program developed by DuPont and launched company-wide in 2008 to improve energy efficiency and reduce emissions at its global manufacturing locations.
As part of the Bold Energy Plan, we have undertaken the following projects at our Tyvek® manufacturing sites since 2016:
We will continue to rely on the Bold Energy Plan as we strive for even greater energy savings and additional GHG emission reductions over the coming decade.
DuPont works closely with Sonoco Plastics to create these winding cores.
DuPont also has an ongoing partnership with Advanced Drainage Systems (ADS) to give Tyvek® production waste a second life as highly engineered water management products.
