DuPont (NYSE: DD) decreased its releases to air, water, land and underground injection wells by 12 percent in 2001 from 2000, according to data provided to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency for its Toxic Release Inventory. The decrease was due primarily to reducing air emissions at the source and reducing nitrate compounds in wastewater discharges. Since 1987, DuPont has reduced its releases by 79 percent, even though production increased by more than 35 percent. Some 286 new compounds were added to the EPA's TRI reporting list in 1995.
