DuPont has pledged its commitment to the 2010/15 PFOA Stewardship Program announced by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.

"DuPont has been aggressively reducing PFOA emissions to the environment," DuPont Vice President Susan Stalnecker said. "Having achieved a 94 percent reduction in global manufacturing emissions by year-end 2005, we are well on our way to meet the goals and objectives established by the EPA stewardship program."

DuPont has regularly kept the EPA informed of progress toward the company's commitments relative to employee health studies, research on consumer articles, the environmental fate of products made with or containing PFOA, and new product formulations, DuPont said.
