DuPont Sites Honored by Int’l Wildlife Habitat Council
The DuPont Fayetteville Works in Fayetteville, North Carolina, and eight other DuPont sites were recently recognized for their outstanding conservation efforts at the International Wildlife Habitat Council (WHC) Symposium in Baltimore, Maryland. DuPont is a founding member of the WHC with 16 certified sites.
DuPont Fayetteville was recognized for its outstanding wildlife habitat program. The site received five awards, including: Corporate Lands for Learning (CLL) Award; CLL Finalist for Site-of-the-Year Award; CLL Rookie-of-the-Year Award; Signature of Sustainability Award; and Finalist for the Wild Turkey Award.
Nine DuPont sites received recognition for demonstrating commitment to environmental stewardship and increasing native biodiversity by achieving Wildlife at WorkSM recertification. These sites include Altamira, Mexico; Chestnut Run/Barley Mill Plaza, Delaware; Chambers Works, New Jersey; Experimental Station, Delaware; Hopewell, Virginia; Luxembourg; Pontchartrain, Louisiana; and Spruance, Virginia. There are six other DuPont sites that maintain wildlife certified sites, but were not scheduled for recertification this year.
“Congratulations to DuPont for stepping up to meet the challenges of creating a healthy and biodiverse natural world,” said Robert Johnson, WHC President. “For 20 years, WHC members like DuPont have embraced their role as leaders in environmental stewardship at the local, national and global level, voluntarily managing their lands to support sustainable ecosystems and sustainable societies.”
