Milestones Achieved


“I’m proud of the progress we’ve made in delivering on our commitments to take responsible action related to PFAS. These initiatives are guided by science and grounded in our commitment to transparency and sustainability in our operations and products, and to contribute to the body of knowledge of these substances. We look forward to continuing to engage with key stakeholders in developing solutions and sharing best practices that expand the science on PFAS and help contribute to a healthier, more sustainable world.”

Alexa Dembek, Chief Technology & Sustainability Officer


As of June 1, 2022, DuPont has achieved the following progress against our 2019 PFAS commitments:


  • Phased out use of long-chain PFAS in our processes and products.
  • Replaced all Aqueous Film Forming Foams (AFFF) in fire suppression systems at our manufacturing operations that contained PFAS with fluorine free foam, except where they are legally required.
  • Provided open-source access to technical guidance documents on how to use DuPont technologies for PFAS remediation. For more information please visit
  • Enabled access to DuPont’s proprietary Chemical Awareness Toolkit to aid in the assessment of chemical alternatives.  For access, please visit
  • Donated $4 million in unrestricted grant funding to the National Science Foundation (NSF) to support the NSF ERASE-PFAS program that funds grants to explore novel PFAS treatment and remediation technologies. As part of our $6 million dollar pledge, we will donate another $2 million in 2022.  For details on the NSF ERASE-PFAS program please go to to learn more.
  • Delivered on our commitment to partner with local, state and federal agencies related to ongoing remediation at those of our production sites with PFAS in soil and/or groundwater.
  • In collaboration with an accredited EHS consulting company, developed and implemented a new corporate standard to monitor and govern substances of concern across the company.
