Global Climate Change -- DuPont's Recommendations

Nov. 10, 2006
Science is sufficient to compel prudent action according to Holliday.

Wilmington, Del.-based E. I. Du Pont de Nemours and Company CEO Charles O. Holliday Jr. is convinced that science is sufficient to compel prudent action to address global climate change. He believes such policies should include:

  • Actions in all sectors of the economy, with measures tailored to economic conditions in various sectors
  • Incentives to reduce emissions of all greenhouse gases
  • Measures to ensure economic efficiency, which is best achieved by harnessing the power of the market
  • Recognition that there is no "silver bullet." Effective action will require a comprehensive suite of policies to include energy efficiency, alternate energy and market measures such as cap and trade. Mandates, incentives and government support will all be required.
