The Dow Chemical Company has a fundamental commitment to the people involved in the manufacturing, distribution and use of its products, as well as to the environment.

This commitment is the basis of our product stewardship philosophy. We assess the health and environmental information on our products, and then take appropriate steps to protect employees, public health and the environment. Our product stewardship program is the responsibility of every individual involved with Dow products, from initial concept and research to the manufacture, sale, distribution and disposal of each product.

Responsible Care® is a voluntary initiative within the global chemical industry to safely handle products from inception in the research laboratory, through manufacture and distribution, to ultimate disposal. This program also involves the public in our decision-making processes. To learn more, visit Responsible Care.

Dow strongly encourages its customers to review both their manufacturing processes and their specific applications that use Dow products from the standpoint of human health and environmental quality, to help ensure that Dow products are not used in ways for which they are not intended or tested. Dow product literature, including Safety Data Sheets, should be consulted prior to the use of any Dow product.
