Sustainability is profitable for DuPont

Providing sustainable solutions will be a high growth business for DuPont’s Performance Materials segment, according to the group’s vice president Diane Gulyas.

In Bank of America’s Basics/Industrial conference, Gulyas highlighted DuPont’s participation in high growth, end-use markets such as photovoltaics for solar cells, advanced metals replacement, and renewably sourced polymers. She said that a critical element of the segment’s plan is to extend cost productivity initiatives to enhance profitability and counter further increases in ingredient costs.

Definitely expect more new sustainability-focused products and applications for the company in the coming months and years. That’s where the money trail seems to be leading as far as new profitability source is concern.
