There are 7 billion reasons why we encourage you to come and work for DuPont
As the world's population approaches seven billion, the challenges facing humanity have never been greater. Fortunately, the solutions to many of the most fundamental challenges can be found in science. Providing for the food, energy and safety needs of a growing population will require more than science alone. It will require many people working together. People who can collaborate across borders, companies, governments, organizations and cultures to devise solutions-both large and small-that improve the lives of people around the world.
DuPont has a rich history of scientific discovery that has enabled countless innovations and made life better for people everywhere. And today, we are looking for more people, in more places, to collaborate with us and make life the best that it can be.
Our core values:
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.
They represent the corner stone of who we are:
· Safety and Health
We adhere to the highest standards to ensure the safety and health of our employees, our customers, and the people of the communities in which we operate.
· Environmental Stewardship
We protect the environment and strengthen our businesses by making environmental issues an integral part of our business activities.
· Highest Ethical Behavior
DuPont employees conduct business activities to the highest ethical standards and in compliance with all applicable laws. We work diligently to be a respected corporate citizen around the world.
· Respect for People
DuPont fosters an environment in which every employee is treated with respect and dignity, and is recognized for his or her contributions to our business.
Together, we can tackle the World's Biggest Challenges.
Science and innovation have a critical part to play in developing the kind of solutions our planet needs to accommodate population growth and improve living standards. To fulfill our mission of Sustainable Growth, we have aligned our focus and investments along key opportunities created by the world's biggest challenges for which we can collaborate and apply our science and innovation.
Together, we can decrease dependence on fossil fuels.
By 2030, the world will consume 60% more energy than today. And while the demand for energy grows, the supply of fossil fuels will not. Deep expertise in microbiology, fermentation, polymer science and electrochemistry will help make possible the transition from fossil fuels to more sustainable alternatives.
Together, we can feed the world.
The earth's population will increase by 150,000 people per day for the next 40 years, which means the world will need to increase food production by 70% in that same period-even as the relative number of acres that can be cultivated globally shrinks. To feed our increasing numbers, we will need to find ways to grow more food per acre.
Together, we can protect what matters most.
As our population grows, so do the threats to human safety and well-being. Globally, over 1,000,000 people per year lose their lives to workplace injuries alone. DuPont is working with companies, governments, academics and scientists on a vast range of materials, products and consulting solutions that protect life and our environment.
Our offer to our employees:
At DuPont, we are dedicated to maximizing our most valuable asset - our people. We do so by embracing diversity and offering opportunities for continuous development, whilst maintaining a good work/life balance. DuPont is a diverse company that offers a magnitude of opportunities in its many business units, functions and locations. We are always looking for bright individuals from diverse cultural, national and educational backgrounds, willing to invest their talents and energy in collaborating with fellow employees and customers to tackle interesting challenges.
