1 Green’s Competitive Edge Political & Economic Implications & Key Risks FPPA 12 th Annual Convention Tucson, AZ March 3, 2009

2 DuPont Packaging Graphics for FPPA Annual Conference, March 2009 Provide Insights & Info… How sustainability fits into the changing landscape Who’s driving sustainability What’s important now The risks associated with sustainability Where your business can focus for success

3 DuPont Packaging Graphics for FPPA Annual Conference, March 2009 Sustainability Today… More defined and more important than 1 year ago Being leveraged as the neutral and galvanizing cause that people, parties, governments and nations can agree on. Strongly coupled with the economy & economic recovery Sustainability is bigger than you and me and it’s surrounded with very powerful players.

4 DuPont Packaging Graphics for FPPA Annual Conference, March 2009 Sustainability Importance – Where it Started Wanting to move faster and push farther than anyone else and knowing that nations, regions, municipalities and states would never move quickly enough, Wal-Mart created THE SCORECARD.  Establishes 7R’s  Launches Sustainability Summits  Establishes Sustainability Value Network  Pushes China to “go green”

5 DuPont Packaging Graphics for FPPA Annual Conference, March 2009 Hardening Their Resolve… Even in Uncertain Times “With all that is going on in the global economy, should being a socially and environmentally responsible company still be a priority? You’re darned right sustainability should be a priority.” “This global economy will turn around. But the social and environmental challenges we are addressing today will be with us for decades.” New Wal-Mart Boss Wants to "Accelerate" Green Efforts Outgoing Walmart CEO, Lee Scott – Fall 2008 Incoming Walmart CEO, Mike Duke – 2/2009 …the company will continue to work toward meeting its various green targets, such as its goal to become a zero waste operation and source all its energy from renewable sources, while stepping up pressure on suppliers to improve their environmental performance. accessed 2/23/09

6 DuPont Packaging Graphics for FPPA Annual Conference, March 2009 Wal-Mart Is Not Alone.. Increasing Focus on Sustainable Packaging CPGC’s focus their sustainability efforts: Reduce packaging weight – package to product rations Reduced greenhouse gas emissions Reduced water usage Biodegradable alternatives to plastic Maximizing the use of recycled materials LCA results to understand how to reduce environmental burdens Standardized eco-labeling Reduce waste and improve handling

7 DuPont Packaging Graphics for FPPA Annual Conference, March 2009 CPG’s & Retailers Moving Beyond Packaging Materials  Beginning to consider the “whole value chain’s” sustainability   Moving toward “greening the supply chain”  Developing new relationships & learning Research Organizations 3PL, 4PL, 5PL Academia Consultants Non-Gov’t Organizations Trade Associations The Collaborative Supply Chain “We want to look at innovation to reduce not just packaging materials, but also energy, water, transportation and replacing the use of non-renewable energy materials with renewables.” Tony Burns P&G

8 DuPont Packaging Graphics for FPPA Annual Conference, March 2009 The Collaborative Packaging Value Chain  New collaboration opportunities across the value chain  Don’t forget about non-traditional collaboration Google Wants Big Piece Of Home Energy Management Biz Google has unveiled Google PowerMeter, a prototype Web application that displays home energy consumption broken down by appliance. The software requires “smart” meters, which provide real-time information to both the utility and the customer,...

9 DuPont Packaging Graphics for FPPA Annual Conference, March 2009 The Collaborative Packaging Value Chain  New collaboration opportunities across the value chain  Don’t forget about non-traditional collaboration  Competition: value chain vs. value chain  Raw materials suppliers working with Brand Owners  Opportunities to “close the loop” on packaging waste  Waste to Value  Partnering with NGOs  Retailers creating packaging departments  Looking to differentiate their packaging Net: Linear relationships of the past are not a viable means for future growth

10 DuPont Packaging Graphics for FPPA Annual Conference, March 2009 The Sustainable Packaging Leaders Linkages to retail &consumer products companies strengthening Cooperation and collaboration platforms expanding Focused on energy, emissions & natural resources High levels of visibility & influence SUSTAINABLE PACKAGING COALITION

11 DuPont Packaging Graphics for FPPA Annual Conference, March 2009 What are the Leaders Saying: Ann Johnson/SPC on Innovation We need to value materials more than we currently do The cost of something doesn't reflect the environmental impact. There isn't a price/cost associated with emissions (yet). Source: Excerpts, CMM Online, “Sustainable Packaging: What Does It Really Mean For Converters? [part 2]”, May 2008 SPC Sustainable Metrics Project Project’s primary purpose is to develop guidelines for measuring the sustainability of packaging and packaging systems. GHG Protocols & GHG Productivity

12 DuPont Packaging Graphics for FPPA Annual Conference, March 2009 Gwen Ruta, VP Corporate Partnerships Excerpts: “Waste Less, Earn More” December 2008  Potential in the US and the existence elsewhere of regulatory schemes related to carbon emissions  Increasing transparency of corporate actions  Needed shift from companies viewing the environment as a cost center to seeing it as a proactive & strategic revenue-enhancer  Pollution is waste, waste costs money – reduce pollution, reduce costs  Pay to burn fuel, create emissions – reduce burning, reduce emissions, reduce costs  Creation of new markets through sustainability leadership Source: MIT Sloan Management Review, Waste Less, Earn More (What a Partnership Insider Has Learned), Interview with Gwen Ruta, 12/09/08

13 DuPont Packaging Graphics for FPPA Annual Conference, March 2009 McKinsey Energy Study Focused on Carbon Abatement & Economic Growth Calculate the amount of output produced by metric tonne of CO2e emitted Today: $740 of GDP/tonne of emissions To reach goals set by the IPCC (International Panel on Climate Change) must increase 10 fold or $7,330 GDP/tonne  Calls for efficiency standards to overcome the “market imperfections” that prevent energy efficiency opportunities with net economic benefits from being realized  Calls for governments to create stable and long-term incentives to promote low-carbon energy sources and discourage emissions of CO2  Calls for incentives to preserve forests Source:

14 DuPont Packaging Graphics for FPPA Annual Conference, March 2009 Government, NGO’s & Business Agreeing Next 3 – 5 years Climate change will drive the sustainability agenda 3 – 5 years after that… Water: if we don’t stop climate change there will be less of it to go around On Climate Change: National & International programs that will raise the cost of doing business for companies that aren’t paying attention to climate change are on their way. The near-term plan & stimulus dollars were set in place at the National Clean Energy Summit last week.

15 DuPont Packaging Graphics for FPPA Annual Conference, March 2009 The Powerhouse Behind “The Plan” The National Clean Energy Project: Building the New Economy Focus on modernizing and expanding the electricity grid Smart Grid component capable of capturing and distributing renewable energy from where it’s plentiful to where it’s needed. Integrating energy efficiency and distributed generation into operation and regulation Rapidly increasing transmission capacity for renewable energy Reducing our nation’s dependence on foreign oil by: Examining short- and long-term solutions to replace foreign oil with domestic resources to fuel vehicles and trucks, including natural gas.
