At the same time, as a global community, we know that critical environmental challenges such as climate change must be addressed,” Doug said. “DuPont is focused on delivering low-carbon solutions to the marketplace in order to help our value chains improve their energy efficiency and reduce greenhouse gas emissions.”
Jointly organized by World Business Council for Sustainable Development and the International Chamber of Commerce, the Bali Global Business Day brought together nearly 300 decision makers from companies, governments, inter-governmental and non-governmental organizations.
Doug participated in the panel discussion, “Solutions and Opportunities in Energy Efficiency,” which discussed how energy efficiency and demand-side management can contribute to a low-carbon framework.
Doug noted that DuPont is committed to delivering alternative energy solutions and advanced biofuels to the global marketplace. “We already offer alternative energy solutions such as the enabling technologies for photovoltaics and fuel cells,” he said. “Our Pioneer-Hi Bred seed business continues to expand biofuels production per acre, resulting in more fuel without increasing the production land used. Further, we are about to bring to market advanced, next-generation biofuels including cellulosic ethanol, which will provide a lower carbon footprint for the transportation fuels sector, and biobutanol, which will increase energy efficiency because of the improved mileage it provides compared to existing biofuels.”
