If current trends in China hold, nearly one billion people will live in cities by 2030, with an urban economy generating as much as 95% of the national economic output. Rapid urbanization has helped lift the living standards of millions of Chinese people, but it is also putting significant pressure on infrastructure, workplace safety, and the natural environment.
Over the years, DuPont has helped develop technology and expertise that can help sustain a rapid pace of economic growth and urbanization in China without sacrificing public safety.
According to DuPont, the key elements of a sound protection strategy for China include ensuring a safe and sustainable growth of infrastructure, improving overall worker safety culture, protecting the natural environment, and promoting public safety.
