Transitioning to a circular economy is not only vital to the preservation and protection of our planet’s natural resources, but also to the success of businesses at Dow. As we transform to a circular economy, we are taking into account a product’s lifecycle – from creation to use to disposal – in everything we do and create.
Imagine if products were designed, created and manufactured in a way that maximized their value across their life cycle. At Dow, we’re rethinking the traditional, linear “take-make-dispose” way of doing business to adopt new ways of working that maximize the value and use of our resources. Learn more.
We are seeking to optimize the efficiency of our operations to conserve resources, repurpose byproducts from our manufacturing, and reduce material and energy waste.
We are working with our value chains to explore regenerative business models and advance recycling technologies and infrastructure.
We are collaborating with our customers, brand owners and the value chain to design materials that enable end products to be reusable or recyclable and extend their life cycle.
