DuPont Founded in 1802 puts science to work by creating sustainable solutions essential to a better, safer, healthier life for people everywhere. Operating in more than 70 countries, DuPont offers a wide range of innovative products and services for markets including agriculture, nutrition, electronics, communications, safety and protection, home and construction, transportation and apparel. In 1802, DuPont was primarily an explosives company. One hundred years ago, our focus turned to chemicals, materials and energy. Today, we deliver science-based solutions that make real differences in people's lives around the world in areas such as food and nutrition, health care, apparel, safety and security, construction, electronics and transportation. Look closely at the things around your home and workplace, and chances are, you'll find dozens of items made with DuPont materials. Our ability to adapt to change and our foundation of unending scientific inquiry has enabled DuPont to become one of the world's most innovative companies. But, in the face of constant change, innovation and discovery, our core values have remained constant: commitment to safety, health and the environment; high ethical standards; and treating people with respect.
