Dow Authorization Process for U.S. Political Contributions
The DowDuPont Board of Directors reviews the Company’s involvement in government policy and disclosure on corporate political spending activities periodically, and makes recommendations to ensure the continued application of the Company’s high ethical standards and to maintain best practices for transparency on political spending.
All proposed political contributions at Dow are reviewed by a Dow Government Affairs work group which makes recommendations to the Vice President of Government Affairs for alignment with our Contributions Focus, and compliance with the Company’s Code of Business Conduct and federal and state law.
The Vice President of Government Affairs is responsible for approval of political contributions and management of the political contributions budget that is approved by the Corporate Vice President, Global Public Affairs and Government Affairs.
The Vice President of Government Affairs elevates political contributions for review and approval by the Corporate Vice President, Global Public Affairs and Government Affairs, and for further review and approval by the Chief Executive Officer, and General Counsel, as appropriate.
