Our commitment to reduce plastic waste

Our three-part strategy represents our commitment to finding ways in which we can continue to provide the benefits 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 our sustainability targets, Dow intends to transform the waste to deliver 3 million metric tons per year of circular and renewable solutions 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.
