DuPont Sponsors Children’s Tree-Planting in Four Countries
Children from Brazil, China, Spain and the U.S. are doing their part to help counter global warming by planting more than 8,000 trees, thanks to support from DuPont. At Wednesday’s Annual Stockholders Meeting in Wilmington, Chairman and CEO Chad Holliday showed a video of the projects and recognized about 15 young people in the audience who planted trees in Wilmington.
A boy from Brazil said, “Global warming is a challenge for everyone.” A girl from the U.S. said, “The more energy we use, the more the planet warms up, so we need to remember that everything we do to save energy helps a little.”
Chad noted that the tree-planting project helped make the Annual Meeting “carbon neutral”, according to calculations by the Conservation Fund, which uses standards set forth by The Greenhouse Gas Protocol Initiative. A portion of the trees were designated to zero-out the greenhouse gas emissions from travel and energy used for the Meeting -- making it a “carbon neutral” event.
“Through these programs, young people in the regions where DuPont operates have learned about climate change and have taken actions to help address it,” Chad said.
