DuPont electronics hits milestone on path to carbon neutral status by 2030


DuPont’s Interconnect Solutions (ICS) – a part of the Electronics & Industrial (E&I) business segment – has set a goal of reaching carbon-neutral operations worldwide by 2030.

DuPont announced that as of September 1, the ICS business achieved the milestone of 95 percent of global operations now powered with renewable electricity. This represents a step forward on DuPont’s corporate Acting on Climate  commitment to source 60 percent renewable electricity by 2030 and deliver carbon neutral operations by 2050.

“At DuPont ICS, we want to be a leader in making impactful change by acting on climate,” said Avi Avula, DuPont vice president, general manager, ICS. “We are taking #OneStepGreener  toward our business aspiration of Zero by 2030, by switching our electricity that is sourced from fossil fuels to renewables. Sustainability is embedded in our vision, and as a total solutions partner, we are innovating in new ways for our customers.” 

“Achieving our sustainability goals means leading by example and partnering with suppliers and customers who are also committed to a sustainable future,” said John Singer, vice president, integrated operations, DuPont Electronics & Industrial. “We are designing our new products with rigorous sustainability principles and we are developing programs to further reduce water consumption in our manufacturing facilities. We are not on this journey alone, and we encourage all our supply chain partners to join with us.”  

DuPont noted that everything from the Mars Rover to the next generation 5G smartphones and advanced automobiles,  “use printed circuit boards, antennas, connectors, thermal management and shielding systems enabled by our use of renewable electricity.”
