WILMINGTON, Del., April 29, 2022 /3BL Media/ – DuPont (NYSE: DD) announced it has joined Apple’s Supplier Clean Energy Program. By participating in the program, DuPont has committed to use 100 percent renewable electricity, including renewable energy credits (RECs) in its manufacture of all products for Apple – a key milestone in achieving renewable electricity and climate stewardship goals outlined in DuPont’s 2030 Sustainability Goals.
“DuPont is proud to join Apple’s Supplier Clean Energy Program,” said Jon Kemp, President, DuPont Electronics & Industrial. “Together, we are working to support a transition to clean energy and are positively addressing climate change. Sustainability has been a focal point for our business and we’re committed to partnering with our customers and suppliers to advance the adoption of clean electricity and reduce environmental impacts along the electronics industry value chain.”
Today’s announcement follows a series of actions DuPont has taken to support its Climate Action goal to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions 30% by 2030, sourcing 60% of electricity from renewable energy and delivering carbon neutral operations by 2050:
- In 2021, DuPont achieved 15% renewable electricity, including renewable energy credits (RECs), which will be highlighted in the company’s sustainability report publishing on May 2, 2022. This includes DuPont’s Interconnect Solutions business (ICS) — part of the Electronics & Industrial segment and manufacturer of products sold to Apple — which now powers 95 percent of its global operations using renewable electricity.
- DuPont is a member of RE100, a global environmental initiative led by the Climate Group in partnership with CDP, which brings together companies committed to shifting the electricity used globally in its operations to 100 percent renewable energy.
- In 2021, the company signed a virtual power purchase agreement (VPPA) with a subsidiary of NextEra Energy Resources, LLC. The VPPA wind power project is scheduled to commence operations in 2023 and is expected to deliver approximately 528,000 megawatt hours (MWh) of wind-generated renewable electricity annually to the local grid. This is equivalent to approximately 25 percent of the company’s total electricity needs today.
