"DuPont™ Tyvek® has helped protect the health and well-being of millions of patients worldwide since it was first used for sterile medical packaging in 1972. We are proud of our role in helping people live longer and healthier, and we believe that advancing sustainability in healthcare packaging is an important extension of that role. That’s why Tyvek® is actively working to advance sustainability across the healthcare packaging value chain.
We understand that making healthcare packaging sustainable is about managing risks for patients, products and the environment, while considering the entire lifecycle of packaging. We also recognize that this is a challenging journey that requires sustainable innovation, continuous improvement and proactive collaboration."
Consistent with the United Nations’ (UN) Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), and in support of the DuPont 2030 Sustainability Goals, we are committed to delivering trusted solutions for healthcare providers that will also help address climate change, drive towards a circular economy and help communities thrive.
