Through strategic partnerships, we provide expertise, advance best in class technologies and deliver tangible verifiable sustainability gains to society through sports.
Dow combines the power of sport and science with the power of collaboration to catalyze action on climate change and help build a sustainable future. Our strategic partnerships advance best-in-class technologies and deliver sustainability gains to society. Sport is our starting point, a sustainable future is our destination. Learn more about Dow’s 2025 Sustainability Goals.
Collaborating in new and meaningful ways is essential for the transition to a sustainable society. Through our “Leading the Blueprint” 2025 Sustainability Goal, Dow is focused on developing collaborative blueprints that integrate public policy solutions, science and technology, and value chain innovation.
Our Sustainable Future programs are designed to support sustainability strategies of partners and create a positive and lasting legacy, while also offering a collaborative blueprint that others can follow.
We leverage Dow’s broad technology portfolio in applications that have the potential to generate significant long-term climate benefits including:
Our Sustainable Future programs follow the principles outlined in Dow’s Climate Solutions Framework.
Dow has created an innovative Climate Solutions Framework to encourage wider adoption of technologies and activities to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. Originally developed for events, the Framework allows organizations, in collaboration with industry partners, to implement a structured, yet flexible, approach to quantify and offset the impacts of their activities while also leaving a positive legacy through the adoption of innovative low-carbon technologies. Incorporating existing best practices in GHG measurement and reporting, The Framework takes a rigorous approach to the development of a portfolio of GHG mitigation projects.
To date, the cumulative GHG reductions from Dow’s three carbon programs, which include Sochi 2014, Rio 2016 and the IOC programs, have reached more than 5 million tonnes of CO2e. By 2026, the programs are expected to exceed 6 million tonnes in CO2 reductions.

Within these reports, we describe Dow’s efforts to build capacity, drive change and achieve the adoption of low-carbon technologies. We hope the lessons learnt will provide actionable advice to organizations across sectors to help build effective partnerships and accelerate the introduction of more sustainable technologies globally.
