Non-Restricting and Non-Retaliation Policy

We must maintain an environment where concerns of misconduct are brought forward. DuPont will not tolerate prohibiting or restricting the reporting of theft, fraud, waste or abuse of materials, persons or property by DuPont employees or contractors. Furthermore, DuPont will not allow retaliation against anyone who, in good faith, raises a concern, reports suspected misconduct, or provides information related to an inquiry of suspected misconduct. The company will investigate any instances of possible retaliation and discipline employees who have retaliated against someone who has reported possible misconduct.

For DuPont employees, additional information is available via the DuPont intranet ECC website. Employees should also feel comfortable communicating with DuPont Ethics & Compliance directly at
