DuPont Statement on Sustainable Development

The Issue:

Sustainable development involves the ability of a community, country, region or world to maintain or improve the present generation’s quality of life, while protecting the ability of future generations to enhance their quality of life. Sustainable development integrates social, economic and environmental needs to develop better solutions to today’s problems while also providing good stewardship of the resources needed for the future. Recognizing that the Earth’s resources are limited and that conservation and innovation are both necessary, many people and organizations with diverse views are coming together to work on issues of common interest.

DuPont Position:

DuPont’s mission is Sustainable Growth which we define as creating shareholder and societal value while reducing the environmental footprint in the value chains in which we operate.

Our vision is to be the world’s most dynamic science company, creating sustainable solutions essential to a better, safer, healthier life for people everywhere.

DuPont is actively pursuing sustainable growth by:

  • Continuing to set footprint reductions goals to reduce our impact in areas like energy, greenhouse gas emissions, water use, and air carcinogens.
  • Setting market facing goals to drive the way that we are investing our R&D and growing our revenues.
  • Seeking to be a welcome neighbor of communities in which we operate as well as a welcome member of society. This requires meeting the public’s expectations of economic competitiveness and social responsibility, including environmental protection.

Companies contribute to sustainable growth efforts by engaging in regular, open dialogue with all stakeholders about community and company issues and working together to solve problems.

Sustainable Growth efforts are essential to DuPont’s overall strategy. We believe that only those companies and industries that provide value to society in a way that is protective of the world’s resources will be competitive in the 21st Century.

http://www.wikinvest.com/stock/E.I._du_Pont_de_Nemours_&_Company_(DD)/Competition

Competition

As a science and technology based company, DuPont competes on a variety of factors such as product quality and performance or specifications, continuity of supply, price, customer service and breadth of product line, depending on the characteristics of the particular market involved and the product or service provided.

Major competitors include diversified industrial companies principally based in the U.S., Western Europe, Japan, China, Korea and India. In the aggregate, these competitors offer a wide range of products from agricultural, commodity and specialty chemicals to plastics, fibers and advanced materials. The company also competes in certain markets with smaller, more specialized firms who offer a narrow range of products or converted products that functionally compete with the company’s offerings.

Pioneer sells advanced plant genetics, principally for the global production of corn and soybeans and thus directly competes with other seed and plant biotechnology companies. The Nutrition & Health business also provides food safety equipment and soy-based food ingredients in competition with other major grain and food processors.

 

http://www.wikinvest.com/stock/E.I._du_Pont_de_Nemours_%26_Company_(DD)

DuPont (NYSE:DD) is a global chemical and technology conglomerate that manufactures materials used in automotive manufacturing, construction, pharmaceuticals, agriculture, and electronics.[1] Agriculture & Nutrition, Safety & Protection, and Electronics are the growth centers for the company, while its Performance Coatings, Performance Materials, and Performance Chemicals divisions serve as reliable sources of cash flow. [2]

Dupont has also manufactures genetically modified plants used to produce renewable energy such as ethanol and biobutanol. Rising oil prices have led to higher demand for alternative energy, and many states have started to require that ethanolbe added to gasoline to reduce pollution and conserve oil. Since DuPont’s acquisition of Pioneer Hi-Bred in 1999, the company has grown to become the world’s largest seed company by sales, providing genetically modified plants that produce the highest levels of corn or soybean per acreage.

DuPont is a large chemical and biotech conglomerate organized into five primary market segments. In addition to the five segments, the company’s other segments include Pharmaceuticals and Other.[4]

  • 3 References
  • Agriculture and Nutrition (31.7% of 2009 net sales, 36.6% of pretax operating income)[6]: This segment’s mission is to identify methods to improve the quantity, quality, and safety of the global food supply through manufacturing insecticides, fungicides, herbicides, and plant food.[7] This segment includes Pioneer Hi-Bred International, a wholly owned subsidiary and the world’s largest producer of seeds.[7] This segment’s core markets are the production agriculture and food processing industries. [8] Agriculture is a key driver of future growth for Dupont, which said in June 2010 it will focus on expanding seed production to boost global agriculture productivity.[9]
    • Genetically engineered seeds for corn and soybeans. Plants grown from these seeds have a higher yield (more starch per plant), are more resistant to disease, and have a higher tolerance for herbicides used to kill weeds.
    • Pesticides that help control insects and protect crops.
    • Soy proteins and lecithins which are used by food companies to enhance their products. These are used in Snickers Marathon bars and in Bio Soja from Danone.
    • Liquid packaging systems for beverages and food.
  • Performance Coatings (13.1% of 2009 net sales, 2.1% of pretax operating income)[6]: This segment supplies motor vehicle coatings. It is the world’s largest manufacturer by volume of titanium dioxide products, a material used in paint, plastics, and paper.[10] This segment’s core markets are the automotive, paper, industrial coatings, transportation, architectural coatings, and plastics industries. [8]
  • Electronic and Communication Technologies (7.3% of 2009 net sales, 2.6% of pretax operating income)[6]: This business unit provides materials for the electronics industry, inks and printing systems, fluoropolymer and fluorochemical products, displays, and alternative energy products. [11] In the growing market for flat panel displays, DuPont Electronic and Communication Technologies is a large supplier of materials for plasma displays. [11] Price increases were driven by increases in the cost of raw materials and favorable changes in US dollar exchange rates. This segment’s core markets include the semiconductor, automotive, displays, commercial packaging and printing, HVAC, telecommunications, and chemical processing industries. [8] Products include:
    • Refrigeration chemicals used in air conditioners.
    • Ceramic circuit materials used to make electronics.
    • Printing technologies used on clothing and paper.
    • Materials used in flat panel televisions
  • Performance Materials (18.1% of 2009 net sales, 8.6% of pretax operating income)[6]: This business unit manufactures high performance polymers, elastometers, films, and other material components. [12] The decrease in volume was driven by an overall reduction in inventory in anticipation of a protracted period of weak global demand from the 2008 recession and extended facility shutdowns from Hurricanes Gustav and Ike. [12] Key markets for the Performance Materials segment include the automotive, packaging, electronics, construction, and consumer durables industries. [8] Products include:
