DuPont Lowers Emissions by 58%, Increases RE

DuPont lowered its Scope 1 and 2 emissions from a 2019 baseline by 58%.

The technology-based materials and solutions company also announced a 39% reduction of Scope 3 emissions from purchased goods and services and end of life of sold products from a 2020 baseline, surpassing its goal of 25% reduction.

DuPont also met its 2030 goal of sourcing 60% of electricity from renewable energy through the purchase of additional renewable energy credits (RECs). 

Details were published in its 2024 Sustainability Report.

"At DuPont, sustainability is integral to our strategy, embedded in every aspect of our business – from our innovation pipeline, to our manufacturing and supply chains, to how we engage with our people and communities," said Ed Breen, DuPont Executive Chairman and CEO, in a statement. "As a global innovation leader and multi-industrial company, we're developing new products and solutions that enable cleaner water, energy-efficient buildings, electric vehicles and advanced computing. Our sustainability journey and progress is powered by our teams around the world who work side-by-side with our customers to deliver innovations that help people and the planet thrive."

The report was developed with reference to the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) standards, the Sustainability Accounting Standards Board (SASB) standards, and the recommendations outlined by the Task Force on Climate-Related Financial Disclosures (TCFD).
