Letter from the CEO

On April 2, Dow colleagues from around the world had the privilege of ringing the opening bell at the New York Stock Exchange. Together, we celebrated Dow’s emergence, once again, as a fully independent company following the DowDuPont merger. While there is much “new” to celebrate, we have also held true to the ideals that have made Dow great over its 122 years: our core values and our best-in-class people. The new Dow represents a tremendous opportunity for our customers, for our communities, for shareholders and for all of Team Dow.

Dow’s success is a collective effort. As we strive to achieve our ambition of being the most innovative, customer-centric, inclusive and sustainable materials science company in the world, we must value one another and allow our differences to drive us to better solutions.

Achieving our ambition requires everyone on Team Dow to deliver an easy, enjoyable, effective customer experience. This starts with building a positive employee experience and creating an environment that fosters pride, inspiration and a sense of belonging.

Dow has adopted a new brand line – “Seek Together” – which is a call to action that highlights the value of collaboration to deliver innovation to our customers and their customers. It requires transparency, anticipating needs and ensuring we are aware of and adapting to the world around us.

This phase of our Company’s history would not have been possible without the loyalty and dedication of Dow people – past and present. Our founder, H.H. Dow, combined a lifelong curiosity with a passion for science and a desire to solve problems, which is still deeply ingrained in our culture.

Dow’s future is brighter than ever because of the foundation that you helped to create. We stand ready to continue delivering advanced solutions to a constantly changing world, thanks in part to the long line of exemplary people we call Dow Friends.

Thank you,
Jim Fitterling
Chief Executive Officer
