'We are thrilled to share our 2030 sustainability goals, which will serve as our north star for advancing sustainability in the built environment over the next decade.' said Shawn Hunter, Global Sustainability Leader, DuPont PBS and Corian® Design. 'We believe that purpose and profit go hand in hand, and our core beliefs have inspired us to define what we hope are bold goals that will help drive the transition to sustainability that is urgently needed in the building industry. By pairing our beliefs with the passion of our employees and collaboration from our market partners, we seek to drive real change in building materials and practices over the next decade.'
The business's goals support DuPont's 2030 goals on Delivering Solutions for Global Challenges, Acting on Climate, Enabling a Circular Economy, Innovating Safer By Design, and Building Thriving Communities.
A recent example of the business's goals in action is the new, reduced global warming potential (GWP) DuPont™ Styrofoam™ Brand ExtrudedPolystyrene (XPS) Rigid Foam Insulation. This new formulation contributes to DuPont's 2030 Acting on Climate goal and is expected to deliver GHG reductions in support of the Paris Climate Agreement, while maintaining the material performance that Styrofoam™ Brand customers expect.
'DuPont PBS and Corian® Design has been an innovation leader for decades, and we must continue to lead and help the world navigate the remarkable challenges of today and tomorrow', Hunter added. 'We have to apply our building science to innovate as if our future depends on it. Because it does.'
