" More information about our strategy, governance and goals are available here: Policies and guidelines In DuPont Nutrition Biosciences ApS, we focus on three key policies: The DuPont Code of Conduct, the Human Rights Policy and the Safety, Health and Environmental Policy. The policies serve as a resource guide to help all employees make decisions that reflect DuPont Group’s core values. The policies also reinforce our commitment to sustainability and are important to our stakeholders. Own operations The DuPont Code of Conduct sets expectations for every employee about how we are to operate our businesses, work with customers, suppliers, and other business partners, serve our stakeholders, and interact with our communities and with each other. DuPont employees are required to receive training in the Code yearly. In addition to the training in the Code, all employees completed minimum one other ethics and compliance module in 2019. The training modules are available online and a test is required to pass the training. We see the full completion of the training program as a satisfactory result for the reporting period. Central to ethics at DuPont is ensuring that each of us purposefully upholds the company’s standards. Any act that intentionally violates the law or regulation, and any effort to conceal non-compliance with this Code of Conduct, or with a company policy, constitutes an ethics violation. Employees are encouraged to seek help with any questions or concerns regarding an ethical situation. Should the employee feel uncomfortable sharing concerns, he or she can call the DuPont Ethics and Compliance Hotline. The Hotline is a multilingual service to allow employees, and nonemployees, to report concerns or seek advice. It is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, and callers can choose to remain anonymous. DuPont Code of Conduct course contains elements of ethics, anti-corruption, and related topics. When an incident indicates suspected corruption, or any other Core Values violations, the Global Ethics Investigations team gathers data required to facilitate a decision whether to pursue the issue. If the issue is pursued, a full investigation is conducted, disciplinary action taken, a root cause analysis conducted, and related control improvements are implemented if necessary. Suppliers and contract manufacturers We also address human rights in the context of our sourcing. We expect our suppliers to comply with same high standards as our other partners. Our supplier approach supports our efforts described in the DuPont Code of Conduct, the Human Rights Policy and the Safety, Health and Environmental Policy. In 2014, we implemented a DuPont Supplier Code of Conduct. We also achieve our sustainability goals through participation in multi-stakeholder organizations such as the Roundtable on Sustainable Palm (RSPO), the Roundtable on Responsible Soy Association (RTRS), and now also the Sustainable Agriculture Initiative platform (SAI). As of 2017 all our palm oil and derivatives are based on RSPO certified palm (Book & Claim, Mass Balance or Segregated). Safety, Health and Environmental policy – A Core Focus The Safety, Health and Environment policy is based on the principles of sustainable development. We are committed to meet legal, internal, and other requirements, to which we describe, to prevent pollution and preserve resources and to prevent injury and ill health of our employees. DuPont Group is working to increase shareholder and societal value while striving for the goal of zero for all safety and environmental incidents. In 2019, DuPont Nutrition Biosciences ApS continued this journey, being committed to zero. Throughout DuPont Group’s manufacturing sites, we have applied management systems to assess, improve, and track environmental, health and safety performance of our own operations. The performance is reported to the DuPont Nutrition & Health leadership team and DuPont Group corporate routinely. "In our 2017 CDP Climate Change submission, we identify opportunities related to climate change, including the need for climate adaptation, and how DuPont considers this need in future product opportunities.We lead the market with practical and sustainable solutions that yield ample and nutritious food supplies. We believe there is a science to feeding the world, and as a leader in Nutrition, we are committed to battling food insecurity, improving nutrition, and ensuring the safety of the food supply." Human rights "DuPont businesses systematically perform human rights reviews on an on-going basis for Contract Manufacturers and Field Labor. In addition, DuPont has the following policies and processes in place to uphold the protection and advancement of human rights wherever we operate:• Corporate policy on human rights• Human rights governance process (which includes a senior vice president, a steering team, and a leadership team)• Suppliers screenings for human rights• Requirement of adherence to human rights in our contracts• Periodic contract administration on-site assessments• Periodic Safety, Health and Environment audits of contractors the includes a human rights assessment" Corporate Social Responsibility "Sustainability is an important part of DuPont's culture.
