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.

What Eco-Efficiency Means to Us

The Potential for Positive Change

We have just begun to explore the possibilities. New billion dollar markets and applications will be created. The benefit for our environment is substantial. This is a growing space where forward-thinking companies will operate. It’s where the future is taking shape.
