DuPont receives US EPA's Presidential Green Chemistry Award for new innovation

Since the early 1990s, DuPont has been recognized as a leader in sustainability, earning a number of awards including the World Environment Center's Gold Medal. DuPont has consistently earned high marks on social responsibility and environmental progress in surveys such as Fortune Magazine's "Most Admired Companies" and the Financial Times PriceWaterhouseCoopers "World's Most Respected Companies."

As part of its sustainable growth mission, DuPont has set four goals for 2010, supplementing existing goals:

  • To derive 25 percent of revenues from non-depletable resources.
  • To reduce global carbon-equivalent greenhouse gas emissions by 65 percent, using 1990 as a base year. The company has already surpassed this goal with a 68 percent reduction.
  • To hold energy use flat using 1990 as a base year.
  • To source 10 percent of the company's global energy use in the year 2010 from renewable resources.

Earlier this year, DuPont became a founding member of the Chicago Climate Exchange, a voluntary cap-and-trade program for reducing and trading greenhouse gas emissions. Members of the Chicago Climate Exchange have made a commitment to reduce their emissions of greenhouse gases by 4 percent below the average of their 1998-2001 baseline by 2006.

The Presidential Green Chemistry Challenge awards have been presented annually since 1996 by the EPA to recognize businesses and individuals who have discovered innovative ways to significantly reduce pollution at its sources and have used chemistry to improve the environment. An independent panel of technical experts from government, industry, academia and the non-profit sector judges nominations for the awards.
