Wall Street Journal Highlights DuPont Climate Change Efforts


June 9, 2006

DuPont News, An article in Wednesday’s Wall Street Journal highlights how environmentalists in the United States are asking individuals and corporations - like DuPont -- to do their part to support climate change.

“Among corporations, at least, this tack is yielding some results. While the powers in Washington still drag their feet on climate change, those in Fairfield and Wilmington and Bentonville -- following the lead of their colleagues in Europe -- are taking some surprising strides,” the article said.

The article said these results are attributable to a new generation of corporate leaders - “people like Chad Holliday at DuPont, Jeff Immelt at General Electric and Lee Scott at Wal-Mart -- are following the example of John Browne at BP and personally pushing this issue. They also believe the green movement could be a business opportunity,” it said.

The article also noted that last week, Institutional Shareholder Services, which advises pension funds and other institutions on how to vote their corporate proxies, highlighted a report by Ceres, which ranks 100 companies on how well they are addressing global warming.

As previously reported in DuPont News, DuPont received an 85, second only to BP, which scored a 90.
