"We’re continually looking to collaborate with like-minded companies to support their carbon reduction goals and work toward more circular solutions."
- Diego Donoso, president, Dow Packaging & Specialty Plastics
The path toward a low-carbon and circular economy is linked. By transforming how we manage resources, make and use products, and how we dispose of them, we can reduce greenhouse gas emissions, waste and pollution.
More and more, we’re teaming up with customers, suppliers and other value chain partners to help innovate both new circular products and new ways of working. Often, these collaborations not only save waste but help our customers meet their sustainability goals for lowering their carbon footprints.
"We’re continually looking to collaborate with like-minded companies to support their carbon reduction goals and work toward more circular solutions," said Diego Donoso, business president for Packaging & Specialty Plastics at Dow. "We know that consumers are increasingly demanding more sustainable products. So, it’s an exciting opportunity for Dow to answer this consumer demand in a new way, while supporting our customers’ sustainability journey."
Below are examples of how we’re using a more circular approach to make items that consumers use every day.
According to the Ellen MacArthur Foundation, meeting global climate targets and reaching net-zero CO2 emissions by 2050 will require tackling the 45% of emissions associated with making products. At Dow, our focus on decarbonization, circularity and sustainable materials is helping catalyze new products for our customers while contributing to a more sustainable future.
