Through these actions the company is strengthening its commitment to implement innovative, sustainable 水 strategies across its facilities, especially in high-risk 水sheds.
“DuPont is proud to join a coalition of organizations that deeply understand the value of 水 resilience and the importance of industry taking 集体行动 to improve our global 水 future,艾德·布林说, DuPont Executive Chairman and CEO. “With the ever-increasing impact of climate change on our global 水 supply, we must act with a sense of urgency to protect our 水 resources, 现在, and for future generations.”
The Water Resilience Coalition, founded in 2020, is an industry-driven, CEO-led coalition of the 联合国全球契约 CEO水资源管理 that aims to elevate global 水 stress to the top of the corporate agenda and preserve the world’s fresh水 resources through 集体行动 in 水-stressed basins and ambitious, quantifiable commitments.
By endorsing the Mandate, a UN Global Compact initiative in co-secretariat with the Pacific Institute, DuPont commits to the continuous improvement in six core areas of 水 stewardship practice: direct operations, supply chain and 水shed management, 集体行动, 公共政策, community engagement, 和透明度.
用这个, DuPont becomes a part of the Mandate’s global community, which gathers over 190 companies seeking to advance on 水, 环境卫生, and the Sustainable Development Goals for corporate 水 stewardship
Signing the Water Resilience Coalition pledge means DuPont also joins an ambitious group of over 30 companies and organizations committed to reducing 水 stress by 2050 in some of the most vulnerable basins around the world and advancing net-positive 水 impact through intersectoral partnerships and collective efforts.
While it is making a corporate-wide 水 stewardship commitment across its global operations, DuPont also plans to bring its expertise in 水 challenges and solutions to the collective impact of the Coalition. 例如, DuPont helps municipalities and industrial 水 users purify 水 supply, optimize 水 usage, minimize discharges, recover valuable raw materials, and minimize energy consumption. DuPont will also make its 水 experts available to join the Coalition’s committees to address the unique challenges of 水sheds around the world.

In addition to the Water Resilience Coalition and CEO水资源管理, DuPont is working to optimize the global 水 supply through a variety of cross-sector partnerships and collaborations. 例如, DuPont is sponsoring the forthcoming Economist Impact City Water Optimisation Index that will help stakeholders around the world use data to make resource, investment and policy decisions to improve more cities’ 水 futures.
“DuPont envisions a future w在这里 all 7.8 billion people on this planet have daily access to safe, clean drinking 水, industry has the necessary 水 to make the products and foods on which we rely, and we optimize the circular nature of 水 in a sustainable, energy efficient way,惠普•南达表示, global vice president and general manager, DuPont 水的解决方案. ”To shape a 水 future that is best for the planet and society, we will continue to collaborate with 水 stakeholders--across sectors and borders—to accelerate progress against shared 水 challenges.”
“DuPont’s focus on science and innovation to drive solutions for the world's complex challenges make it a natural ally to accelerate 水 resilience in the face of climate change,” said Jason Morrison, President of the Pacific Institute and Head of the CEO水资源管理. “By joining the Water Resilience Coalition, DuPont recognizes the private sector's powerful opportunity to scale 水 stewardship impact through 集体行动 and share best practices with companies around the world.”
