Science & Sustainability

Let's make change happen

By combining chemistry with science and sustainable choices, Dow wants to contribute to solving the most urgent problems facing the world, such as the energy and climate crises and the availability of safe and clean drinking water.

We are convinced that the chemical industry has a key role to play in the transformation toward a sustainable society. Dow can and must be a role model for this. We are also constantly looking at how we can integrate sustainability into all facets of our company and how we can reduce our footprint. Thinking and acting sustainably is in our DNA.
