Addressing Global Challenges

According to the International Energy Agency, existing buildings are responsible for over 40% of the world’s total primary energy consumption and account for 24% of world CO2 emissions.

Supporting more energy efficient design with technology designed to improve a building’s performance is a key driver for research and development professionals at Dow. However, that’s only part of the story: improving the durability, efficiency and quality of building products all contribute to reducing waste, improving performance and ultimately achieving more sustainable development.

Enabling more sustainable construction methods – where possible in partnership with customers - is fundamental to how Dow does business. Browse our selection of elastomeric roof coating chemistries.

Addressing Rapid Urbanization

By 2030, the United Nations estimates that 40% of the world’s population will lack adequate housing. In a rapidly changing and urbanizing world, the provision of adequate and affordable housing remains a key priority. Driven by our rapidly expanding global population, we ensure our unique chemical, physical and biological science capabilities work together to provide innovative products and solutions, where they are needed most.
