WHAT ECO-EFFICIENCY MEANS TO US

Everything we do affects our environment. At DuPont Biomaterials, we’re dedicated to finding ways to enhance the quality of life through high-performance, competitively priced materials while progressively reducing the environmental impacts of industry.

Our ultimate goal is to be an important part of the circular economy, one in which products are made to be made again, where the system is powered by renewable energy, where the process itself is responsible and restorative.

This, to us, is progress. And eco-efficiency is a practical way to achieve the world we wish for.
