About » DuPont

The DuPont Awards for Packaging Innovation is the industry's longest running, independently judged global awards program honoring packaging materials, processes, technology and service innovations.

The 20th DuPont Awards has a special focus on recognizing innovations that demonstrate breakthrough achievements in sustainability.

DuPont - one of the first companies to publicly establish environmental goals 18 years ago - has broadened its sustainability commitments beyond internal footprint reduction to include market-driven targets for both revenue and research and development investment. The goals are tied directly to business growth, specifically to the development of safer and environmentally improved new products for key global markets.
