Completion of ISCC PLUS certification for Tyvek worldwide® Product capabilities represent an important milestone to advance the company’s climate action and achieve the sustainability goals of a circular economy. ISCC PLUS certification enables the verification of a product’s sustainability based on the entire supply chain, from the sourcing of raw materials to production and distribution, using the mass balance approach in a way that is robust, transparent and reliable.

One of the most important aspects of ISCC PLUS certification is that it helps reduce the carbon footprint of products and gradually replace fossil raw materials with more sustainable alternatives, while promoting the transition to a more circular economy.

Obtaining ISCC certification builds on the progress DuPont reported in the company’s 2024 Sustainability Report, including a 58 percent reduction in Scope 1 and Scope 2 emissions compared to the 2019 base year. This puts DuPont ahead of its 2030 target and exceeds expectations of the 1.5°C goal of the Paris Agreement.
