[PDF] Investors Challenge Dow Chemical Management on the Worst Chemical Disaster in History

Shareholders of Dow Chemical will challenge CEO Andrew Liveris and the company’s top management at its annual meeting of stockholders on Thursday, May 11, 2006 to take new initiatives regarding the 1984 Bhopal chemical disaster. Twenty two years after the disaster, current developments related to it threaten Dow’s reputation and business in India. A shareholder resolution on the agenda for this year’s annual meeting asserts that it would be respectful of human rights, and also a good business decision, for Dow to undertake new initiatives to address the needs of survivors.
