Cleaning Up Our Environment Cannot Wait

Plastic waste is one of the most important sustainability issues of our time.
That’s why Dow is globally committed to the challenge.

Our three-part strategy represents our commitment to finding ways in which we can continue to provide the convenience of plastic, the protection of plastic, the affordability and safety of plastic, while ensuring that none of that plastic ends up in the environment or is lost to landfill.

  • We will work to keep plastic out of the environment.
  • We will increase impact through partnerships.
  • We will deliver circular economy solutions.

As part of newly launched sustainability targets, Dow intends to stop the waste by enabling 1 million metric tons of plastic to be collected, reused or recycled through its direct actions and partnerships by 2030. Dow also aims to close the loop by enabling 100% of Dow products sold into packaging applications to be reusable or recyclable by 2035.
