DuPont wins recognition for sustainability initiatives

DuPont has been named to the Carbon Disclosure Project’s (CDP) S&P 500 Carbon Performance Leadership Index (CPLI) and Carbon Disclosure Leadership Index (CDLI) with a score of 96 for its disclosure of information related to climate change risks and opportunities and an “A” for its emission reduction performance.  DuPont was also recently named to the North America Dow Jones Sustainability Index (DJSI) and the CDP Global 500 Carbon Performance Leadership Index.    

“Continuing to be recognized by both CDP and DJSI for our achievements on sustainable growth shows our stakeholders we are walking the talk when it comes to integrating sustainability into our business,” said Linda Fisher, vice president and chief sustainability officer for DuPont. “We began our sustainability work by setting voluntary footprint reduction goals over 20 years ago and we are especially proud to have our proactive climate change strategy and global green house gas reduction efforts recognized by CDP.”

DuPont was singled out for progress driven by its Bold Energy Plan which saw over 600 energy improvement projects and realized $30 million in savings. The CDP also highlighted DuPont’s market-facing sustainability goals that look beyond the company’s operational footprint and focus on the markets they serve.

“Our 2015 goals have led to a doubling of R&D investment in programs with a quantifiable environmental benefit and nearly $2 billion in annual revenue from products that help our customers and consumers throughout our value chains improve energy efficiency or reduce greenhouse gas emissions,” Fisher added.

The Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP) is an international, not-for-profit organization providing the only global system for companies and cities to measure, disclose, manage and share vital environmental information.

CDP harnesses the power of market forces, including 655 institutional investors with assets of US $78 trillion, to collect information from companies on their greenhouse gas emissions and assessment of climate change and water risk and opportunity.

CDP now holds the largest collection globally of primary climate change and water data and puts these insights at the heart of strategic business, investment and policy decisions.

DuPont – one of the first companies to publicly establish environmental goals more than 20 years ago – has broadened its sustainability commitments beyond internal footprint reduction to include market-driven targets for both revenue and research and development investment. The goals are tied directly to business growth, specifically to the development of safer and environmentally improved new products for key global markets.
