Washington, DC (PRWEB) June 25, 2013

In response to U.S. President Barack Obama’s announcement on climate change, DuPont today issued the following statement attributed to vice president and chief sustainability officer Linda Fisher.

"DuPont supports actions to address the global challenge of climate change, and believes that coordinated action by nations employing market based solutions will ultimately be required," said Fisher.

"We have set voluntary goals to reduce our energy use and greenhouse gas emissions and have achieved significant progress. We are heartened by the growing range of greenhouse gas emissions reduction programs in both developed and developing nations, but recognize that in the U.S., Congress has not yet acted," Fisher added. "We believe that U.S. leadership in this area is important. Absent Congressional action, we think that prudent and cost-effective steps can be taken administratively in the U.S., and welcome the President’s announcement on actions the Administration will take. In particular, we think the President’s planned activities in the areas of efficiency, renewable energy and HFCs are constructive, and we applaud his leadership."
