DuPont Sustainable Solutions Launches New Operational Excellence Offering

DuPont Sustainable Solutions (DSS) has launched a new operational excellence offering that helps companies across a wide range of industries achieve world-class operational performance.

This integrated and balanced approach helps companies improve financial performance by increasing productivity and asset uptime, while also improving quality, human safety and environmental footprint.“DuPont Sustainable Solutions is unique in that we are able to draw upon our company’s own experience managing more than 200 plant sites around the world,” said James Weigand, president, DuPont Sustainable Solutions. “That means our operational excellence solutions have been proven to improve business performance, and we can show specific examples of how we have optimized productivity, quality, yield and safety to achieve sustainable and measurable results both inside DuPont and with our growing list of external clients.”CEOs worldwide have cited operational excellence as one of their most important issues, and say that several external factors are pressuring companies to improve operational performance.Among them are global competition, public accountability, investor expectations and rising plant demands. DSS can help clients address these issues so they can improve customer satisfaction, increase production efficiency and capacity, create value and reduce costs.

“We are working with companies in industries like oil and gas, utilities, chemicals, food and beverage, mining and natural resources to assess and manage their operational risks and improve productivity,” said Brian Rains, global operational excellence practice leader for DSS. “We serve companies that operate an asset base that needs to be optimized without major capital investments, releasing locked value to deliver on growth objectives, or to generate a step-change in productivity.”

Practice areas within the operational excellence offering include operations transformation, asset  productivity, process performance, energy efficiency, integrated business excellence and supply chain, mindsets and behaviors, learning and development and process safety/environmental management.

Bringing customers the benefits of an integrated global consulting services and process technology enterprise, it applies DuPont’s real-world experience, history of innovation, problem-solving success, and strong brands to help organizations transform their workplaces and work cultures to become safer, more efficient and more environmentally sustainable.  Additional information is available at:
