Sustainability in Packaging:
Innovation Is Key

At DuPont Packaging, we believe innovation and science can help create sustainability in packaging, optimizing the amount of packaging materials used and enabling a future where all packaging is recycled or its value is recovered.   We also believe that renewably sourced materials are an important key to our future and collaborative innovation is necessary to turn this vision into reality.
