WILMINGTON, Del., April 12, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- via PRWEB - Corporate
Responsibility (CR) Magazine named DuPont in its Top 100 Best Corporate
Citizens rankings today.

The 100 Best Corporate Citizens list, now in its 14th year, ranks companies
based on publicly available information in seven categories: environment,
climate change, employee relations, human rights, governance, finance and
philanthropy. The list's creators assign a 19.5 percent weighting to
environmental impact and employee relations, two areas they have identified as
key issues for 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 Sustainability
Officer Linda J. Fisher. "We are now focused on the big global challenges of
food security, energy and protection and working collaboratively with key
stakeholders globally to bring new solutions to the market."

"Sustaining a strong, vibrant organization is one of our top priorities in
driving business growth. Our robust programs around diversity and inclusion,
engagement, and learning and 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 ever-increasing
challenges," said Senior Vice President, DuPont Human Resources Benito
Cachinero-Sánchez.
