TORONTO (ICIS news)--DuPont has created a new "Sustainable Solutions" organisation to expand and integrate consulting services, training, and technology products and services, targeting a market opportunity potentially worth $15bn (€11bn), the US producer said on Tuesday.

DuPont Sustainable Solutions would be organised into four areas – safety resources, sustainable operations, training solutions, and clean technologies, DuPont said.

It would integrate three DuPont businesses - DuPont Safety Resources, segments of DuPont Clean Technologies, and Coastal Training Technologies.

The new organisation, one of 13 DuPont businesses, would be headed by James Weigand as president, DuPont said.

Weigand said DuPont Sustainable Solutions was building on DuPont's long history of implementing safety and process improvements, both within the company and for external clients worldwide.

“This expanded DuPont organisation brings together people, processes, technologies, and services that significantly expand our ability to help our clients meet their business objectives, and in doing so, we believe we will achieve double-digit growth over the next five years,” Weigand said.
