Company Response

Dow response re conflict between IECA membership and its sustainability policies

In response, Dow stated that “IECA does not represent Dow on this issue” and provided a link to its statement about the Paris Agreement: Dow is the leading materials science company in the world and innovates and manufactures many low carbon technologies that enable reductions in greenhouse gas emissions and create jobs and economic value in the United States. While we are disappointed in the decision to withdraw the United States from its commitments in the Paris Climate Agreement, we understand there are always many potential solutions to challenges and are eager to work toward alternative solutions. We will continue to collaborate with President Trump as well as other businesses, NGOs and academics to continue to advocate for smart policies that enable the reduction of global greenhouse gas emissions and ensure that global markets stay open to American exports and innovation.
