DuPont Core Values
Safety: Concern for the safety and health of employees is deeply ingrained in DuPont corporate culture. We operate on a single corporate philosophy: all accidents are preventable – the goal is ‘zero’.
Ethics: Our commitment is to conduct business with highest ethical standards and work diligently to be a respected corporate citizen worldwide. We consistently apply our ethical standards to all global business relationships to enable a work environment that is conducive to individual and company success.
Respect for the Environment: We affirm to all our stakeholders, including our employees, customers, shareholders and the public, that we will conduct our business with respect and care for the environment. We will implement those strategies that build successful businesses and achieve the greatest benefit for all our stakeholders without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their needs. We will continuously improve our practices in light of advances in technology and new understandings in safety, health and environmental science.
Respect for People: Respectful treatment of employees has been a DuPont core value since its inception in 1802. We believe that people are our greatest resource. Today, with fewer layers of management, the people of DuPont have the responsibility and freedom to directly contribute to business performance more than at any other time in the history of the company. DuPont seeks to provide the best possible working environment, conducive to creative thinking and action, in an atmosphere of collegiality.
