CDP is a not-for profit charity that runs the global disclosure system investors, companies, cities, states and regions to manage their environmental impacts. The world’s economy looks to CDP as the gold standard of environmental reporting with the richest and most comprehensive data on corporate and city action.
Dow has submitted a public response to the climate change questionnaire since 2003. Dow’s recent scores and documents can be found below. In addition to our own disclosure, we have partnered with CDP to collect climate data from approximately 100 suppliers in 2021, representing 31% of our 2021 spend. Of those suppliers, 92% of respondents reported Scope 1 carbon emissions, and 80% have set a carbon reduction target. We are expanding the CDP program to target engagement with approximately 350 suppliers in 2022 and 500 globally in 2023, with an ask to disclose carbon emissions data and reduction plans.
