Sourcing of raw materials represents more than 50% of our total carbon footprint from cradle-to-customer. Sustainable sourcing is therefore a key priority. DuPont Nutrition & Health is building transparent, responsible supply chains for all our sourced materials. All suppliers sign our Supplier Code of Conduct.
The manufacturing stage of our value chain represents about a third our total carbon footprint from cradle-to-customer. Still, it is here we exert the greatest degree of control. We focus on our environmental footprint related to greenhouse gas emissions, water and waste, social and ethical standards in our manufacturing sites and relevant packaging and transport projects.
The third pillar of our strategy is sustainable solutions which focuses on our products impacts on environmental-, social- and economic sustainability across the life cycle. We have completed nine 3rd party reviewed ISO 14044 compliant life cycle assessments covering a total of 22 different product types.
