Dupont company introduction

DuPont has been bringing world-class science and engineering to the global marketplace in the form of innovative products, materials, and services since 1802. The company believes that by collaborating with customers, governments, non-governmental organizations (NGOs), and thought leaders, we can help find solutions to such global challenges as providing enough healthy food for people everywhere, decreasing dependence on fossil fuels, and protecting life and the environment.

Global population growth and associated growth in the middle class are creating distinct challenges around the world. These challenges, or megatrends, present great opportunity and potential for DuPont to bring its science and technology to the marketplace, creating sustainable solutions in collaboration with customers and key partners while driving growth and maximizing shareholder value. The company is specifically focused on delivering solutions to increase food production; decrease dependence on fossil fuels; and protect people and the environment.

Founded in 1802 in Wilmington, Delaware, DuPont first produced highgrade black powder for explosives. By the early 1900s, the company’s focus shifted to chemicals, materials and energy to meet the changing needs of consumers and businesses. Today, DuPont delivers science-powered innovations that make real differences in people’s lives around the world. In fact, most homes and workplaces around the world include dozens of innovations made with DuPont materials.

DuPont’s ability to adapt to the evolving needs of customers and its foundation of unending scientific inquiry have enabled it to become one of the world’s most innovative and successful companies. What has not changed in 200 years are DuPont’s core values: commitment to safety and health; environmental stewardship; highest ethical behavior; and respect for people.

DuPont has more than 8,500 scientists and engineers working across more than 75 research and development centers globally. In addition, DuPont continues to closely collaborate with our customers and key partners to meet market needs. To date, DuPont has been awarded patents for more than 35,000 inventions—a new invention every other day for 208 years.

One of the first companies to publicly establish environmental goals more than 20 years ago, DuPont has broadened its sustainability commitments beyond its 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.
