consumers, shareholders and employees.

This is the fourth consecutive year DuPont has been included on the CR Magazine's Best Corporate
Citizens list.

"Societal expectations for corporations like DuPont continue to grow and change. We believe that
engaging with others in order to understand and then embed their expectations into our business
strategies is critically important to our overall success," said DuPont Vice President and Chief

working collaboratively with key stakeholders globally to bring new solutions to the market."

development help foster a vibrant organization. They enable us to attract and retain talented
people who are inspired to work collaboratively to solve some of the world's biggest and
