WILMINGTON, Del., Sept. 13, 2012 - DuPont has been named today to the 2012 North America Dow Jones Sustainability Index (DJSI), one of the most respected socially responsible investment indices on the market.

The DJSI measures the performance of the world's publicly traded sustainability leaders.  Companies are selected based on a comprehensive assessment of long-term economic, environmental and social criteria that account for general as well as industry-specific sustainability trends. 

"DuPont has been committed to sustainability for decades, and we report our progress on a broad set of economic, environmental and social indicators every year.  We are very pleased that the hard work of our employees has been recognized by the Dow Jones Sustainability Index," said Linda J. Fisher, vice president and chief sustainability officer for DuPont.  "We believe that integrating sustainability into our business strategies and our operating principles creates huge benefits for our communities, employees, customers, shareholders and all of society.  We are committed to using our science and innovation to provide solutions to some of the world's most pressing problems in a safe and sustainable way."

The research for the Sustainability Index is conducted by Sustainable Asset Management (SAM), a firm focused exclusively on sustainable and responsible investing.  Each year, SAM invites the world's 2,500 largest companies from 57 sectors to respond to surveys regarding their sustainability performance.  The resulting Corporate Sustainability Assessment provides an in-depth analysis of economic, environmental and social criteria, such as corporate governance, water-related risks and stakeholder relations, with a special focus on industry-specific risks and opportunities. 

"The participation rate for this year's Corporate Sustainability Assessment was 8.4 percent higher than last year.  We see this as a strong signal of the increasing recognition that integrating sustainability into corporate strategies is essential to the bottom line.  The companies that participate in our assessment really grasp the financial materiality of incorporating sustainability into their strategies," said Guido Giese, head of indices, SAM.
