DuPont Building Innovations - Drive to Zero
Three years ago, DuPont Building Innovations began working towards an ambitious goal - to reduce the 81 million pounds of annual landfill waste to zero. Through the use of Six Sigma methodology, DuPont Building Innovations has successfully become entirely landfill-free by reducing, reusing and recycling manufacturing byproducts and waste at manufacturing sites globally. By not just reducing landfill, but eliminating it, the business's work to reduce its environmental footprint creates a new standard for environmental stewardship.

Designing a Cure for Cancer
DuPont Building Innovations is honored to support cancer research through DesignLove, the collaborative initiative between Intramuros magazine, Luminaire design company and DuPont. This event is the third iteration of Luminaire's Love series, which uses the power of design as a tool to help combat cancer. The world's top designers were commissioned to create ninety-six unique works for the exhibition and auction. Each distinctive creation was made using an A4-sized sheet of DuPontTM Corian® solid surface material in the colors of Designer White or Glacier White. The event took place in Miami during Art Basel, the world's premier international art show for modern and contemporary works. With the overwhelming support of design enthusiasts and cancer research supporters from around the world, the exhibition has successfully raised over $50,000 to benefit the Sylvester Comphrensive Cancer Center at the University of Miami. Remaining pieces from the event are still being sold on Luminaire's DesignLove website.

Corian® inspires Design for Emerging Architects
Design enthusiasts traveled to Atlanta during mid-January to celebrate Emerging Voices 11, an exhibit sponsored by AIA Atlanta that spotlighted two of Atlanta's most prominent young architects, Tristan Al-Haddad and Ryan Gravel. The visionary works of these two architects were displayed at MODA, the Museum of Design Atlanta. Emerging Voices is held annually to encourage the exchange of ideas and the potential influence of architecture and design in Atlanta. DuPontTM Corian® solid surface is a core material featured in the architects' sculptures such Al-Haddad's "Mobius" and "Pucker Up" as well as Gravel's "BeltLine." Gravel's work for the original design of the Atlanta BeltLine has helped the transit greenway transform into a $2+ billion initiative that generates economic growth and protects the quality of life through the metropolitan area.
