During the past 117 years, Dow has grown from a one-product company to an innovative science and technology company with low-cost operating discipline as its core and scale and intellectual property as its differentiation. The Company has shifted its focus to downstream, market-aligned businesses, while pursuing an asset-light approach for upstream low-cost businesses – tightening capital allocation. For Dow, total shareholder return remains a foundational commitment – evidenced by Dow's TSR performance over the previous five years and reinforced by its continued execution against the Company's stated near-term strategic priorities.
