DuPont Luxembourg: Achieving lasting sustainability in industrial production.
Achieving Lasting Sustainability in Industrial Production
DuPont Luxembourg, founded in 1962, is one of the DuPont’s largest investments in Europe and today employs more than 1,150 people. On the 104 hectare site, DuPont runs four major production units for polyester films, spunbonds and elastomers.
DuPont Luxembourg had begun focusing on improving energy efficiency, emissions and water usage, as well as biodiversity around its site in 2000. The site has been ISO 14,001 certified since 1997 and is also Wildlife Habitat certified. However, the corporate 2015 sustainability goals for water and energy consumption go beyond what is required for this certification and also exceed national regulatory requirements.
