DuPont Building Innovations achieves Zero Landfill Status

Science-based products and services company DuPont Building Innovations has reduced its annual environmental footprint from 36,740 tonnes of landfill waste to zero in an impressive ‘Drive to Zero’ campaign. Over the past three years, the global firm has striven to not only reduce its landfill waste but eliminate it completely and has now succeeded in achieving Zero Landfill Status.

As part of the programme, waste materials are recycled, reused or sold off for alternative uses. For example: sanding waste is used as filler replacement in concrete; crushed scrap is sold for use as road sub-base material; and shipping pallets are repaired, reused or ground into animal bedding.

Timothy P. McCann, President of DuPont Building Innovations, details: “The Drive to Zero landfill program is good for our business, good for the environment and highly valued by our customers. Working with our supply chain partners to tackle the zero landfill goal was critical to the success of our business in reducing its environmental footprint. Collaborating with our business partners allowed us to succeed in reaching our ambitious project goal of zero landfill.”
