Dow Added to Global Sustainability 50 Index

The Dow Chemical Co. has been added to the NASDAQ OMX CRD Global Sustainability 50 Index for the first time. “Sustainability has been firmly planted in Dow’s corporate strategy for many years,” said Howard Ungerleider, Dow’s vice president of Investor Relations. “The more companies and investors recognize the importance of sustainability leadership as a business objective, the more value will be delivered to society, the environment, employees, and shareholders.”

The NASDAQ OMX CRD Global Sustainability 50 Index is comprised of companies that have taken a leadership role in disclosing their carbon footprint, energy usage, water consumption, hazardous and non-hazardous waste, employee safety, workforce diversity, management composition, and community investing.

Neil Hawkins, Dow’s vice president of Sustainability and EH&S, said Dow remains focused on continuing to reduce its impact on the environment while harnessing its innovation to help customers, communities, and individuals to do the same. “As the world’s leading specialty chemical and advanced materials company, Dow contributes to the sustainability of society and our planet by developing innovative technologies for current and future markets,” he said.
