Renewable Solutions

 

DuPont leads the way in sourcing renewable materials for high-performance sporting goods. For example, the renewable biopolymer content in Zytel® RS grades comes from sebacic acid that has been extracted from castor oil, a non-food, plant-based source.

In addition to sourcing sustainable ingredients, we are moving toward carbon neutral facilities and contributing to a circular economy.

Operating sustainably goes beyond optimizing our own footprint. We partner with suppliers, customers, and other businesses to reduce environmental impacts across the value chain.
