DuPont Sustainable Solutions is now seeking applications for the 13th edition of the DuPont Safety and Sustainability Awards.

“Over the last decade, the DuPont Safety and Sustainability Awards have become widely recognized among industrial companies as a benchmark for workplace safety, sustainability and operational excellence,” said David Vassallo, global managing director, DuPont Sustainable Solutions.  “More importantly, they have helped to promote initiatives aimed at saving lives and protecting the environment.”

The awards will be judged by a jury composed of leading experts in the field of workplace safety, environment and operations management.  An application form, available at, should be submitted by April 23, 2017. Complete entries, including a summary of the project, must be received by May 31, 2017.

Since its launch in 2002, the competition has attracted a growing number of applicants, with entries for 2015 increasing nearly 150 percent over those in 2013.  Last year’s entries came from a wide range of industry sectors across the globe.

The DuPont Safety and Sustainability Awards competition welcomes entries from all companies or organizations that can demonstrate significant achievements in one of the following three categories: safety, sustainability or operations excellence.  Regional winners in each category will be announced in early summer, and the global winner will be announced in September at an award ceremony taking place within the context of the XXI World Congress on Safety and Health at Work in Singapore.  Awards will be judged on criteria including management commitment, cultural evolution, performance improvement, innovation and stakeholder engagement. Winners will receive a trophy and a certificate at the award ceremony.  Further details, as well as the application form, can be obtained at or by contacting the independent organizing committee via email at
