Our 2015 Sustainability Goals: Contributing to Community Success

Our 2015 Sustainability Goals state that by the year 2015, 100% of Dow sites where we have a major presence will have achieved their individual community acceptance ratings.

Working toward that goal, we are collaborating with local businesses and citizens to help create stronger, safer and sustainable communities through:
  • Engagement
  • Establishing joint goals and plans
  • Taking actions for the long-term success of all involved

Locally determined goals have been established, describing specific activities and measurement targets of short and long-term achievement mutually agreed upon by Dow and community representatives. 

Dow adheres to the American Chemistry Council’s Responsible Care® Code of Management Practices and will take into consideration various sustainability ratings, such as the Dow Jones Sustainability Index.
