Elena has a long-standing interest in good nutrition and health, which is a good fit with DuPont’s commitment to feeding the world, one of the global challenges on which the company is concentrating its collaborative science-based problem-solving.
“This is a great match for DuPont and particularly the Nutrition & Health business which focuses on delivering food ingredients that are packed with nutrition, improving health and providing great taste,” said Craig F. Binetti, president of DuPont Nutrition & Health. “We’re eager to work with Elena to bring attention to the importance of good nutrition as a gateway to good health.”
According to Elena Delle Donne, “While DuPont is a global company, they’re headquartered in Wilmington, Del. That’s my hometown, which makes this association especially meaningful to me. I am really looking forward to partnering with DuPont to bring attention to topics I care about so much.”
DuPont is using the remainder of this year to develop a plan over a three-year period, starting in 2014, which will align this exciting sponsorship with the company’s efforts to bring first-rate science to the myriad challenges of feeding populations in both developed and developing nations. DuPont will announce the details of its three-year plan in January 2014.

The company believes that by collaborating with customers, governments, NGOs, and thought leaders we can help find solutions to such global challenges as providing enough healthy food for people everywhere, decreasing dependence on fossil fuels, and protecting life and the environment.
