DuPont backs action to tackle challenge of climate change
Jun '13
In response to U.S. President Barack Obama’s announcement on climate change, DuPont issued the following statement attributed to vice president and chief sustainability officer Linda Fisher.

“DuPont supports actions to address the global challenge of climate change, and believes that coordinated action by nations employing market based solution will ultimately be required,” said Fisher.

“We have set voluntary goals to reduce our energy use and greenhouse gas emissions and have achieved significant progress.  We are heartened by the growing range of greenhouse gas emissions reduction programs in both developed and developing nations, but recognize that in the U.S., Congress has not yet acted,” Fisher added.

“We believe that U.S. leadership in this area is important.  Absent Congressional action, we think that prudent and cost-effective steps can be taken administratively in the U.S., and welcome the President’s announcement on actions the Administration will take. In particular, we think the President’s planned activities in the areas of efficiency, renewable energy and HFCs are constructive, and we applaud his leadership.”

DuPont has been bringing world-class science and engineering to the global marketplace in the form of innovative products, materials, and services since 1802. 

The company believes that by collaborating with customers, governments, NGOs, and thought leaders we can help find solutions to such global challenges as providing enough healthy food for people everywhere, decreasing dependence on fossil fuels, and protecting life and the environment.
