Practicing Global Awareness Site by Site for a Decade of Change
Success in water use reduction at a Florida facility exemplifies DuPont’s understanding that global change means local action. DuPont has committed to reducing water consumption over ten years by at least 30 percent at its global sites that are located where the renewable freshwater supply is either scarce or stressed. Facilities in affected sites assess their water consumption situations, determine how they can contribute toward the corporate goal, and report water consumption information annually through a corporate environmental plan.
Each person in Florida uses about 120-150 gallons of water per day, and with thousands of people moving to the state each month, public water supply needs in the area of the DuPont plant are expected to double by the year 2025.
