Dow China was recently recognized as a “Top 10 Energy Conservation and Emissions Reduction Corporations” at the Fourth China Summit on the Development of Circular Economy, part of the 2009 China Beijing International High-tech Industries Week.

About 100 leading international and domestic corporations participated in the nation-wide online voting through Xinhua Net, one of China's largest news portals, and Dow ranked No. 1 in the chemical industry for its operational eco-efficiency and outstanding contributions to emissions reduction in China and world-wide.

"It is a tremendous honor for Dow to receive this recognition. This award is a resounding confirmation of our efforts in sustainable development in China." said Dennis Chung, Dow's Asia Pacific Director, Sustainability and EH&S. “As a world leading chemical company, sustainability drives Dow's every business decision. We are dedicated to providing eco-friendly and energy saving solutions that help to address China's most pressing development challenges.”

“Energy conservation and emissions reduction are at the heart of Dow's 2015 Sustainability Goals – a public commitment to hold ourselves accountable in the pursuit of solutions to global challenges including energy, climate change, and water.” said Neil Hawkins, Dow's vice president of Sustainability and Environment, Health & Safety (EH&S). “Dow will continue to set the standard for sustainability by strengthening relationships with communities where we operate, improving our product stewardship and reducing our global footprint.”

In China, Dow has applied stringent sustainability standards to all its plants and locations.Dow China's core manufacturing base in Zhangjiagang is recognized as “The State Environment-friendly Enterprise” by the Ministry of Environmental Protection for the excellence in safety and cleaner production. The newly established Shanghai Dow Center, Dow's business and innovation hub in Asia Pacific, was designed and constructed as a “Green Building,” utilizing many of Dow's cutting edge sustainable technologies and products.

Dow is an active and long-standing contributor to sustainable development in China. Through collaboration with China's Ministry of Environmental Protection, Dow launched a four-year program in 2005 to promote “Cleaner Production” and share sustainability best practices with local SMEs. Dow Water Solutions and Dow Building Solutions products were also used in many projects in China to improve the local community environment and energy efficiency.

Dow has also been an educator to China's next generation on the importance of sustainable development. Starting in 2008, Dow partnered with Junior Achievement in China to launch the “Our City” program, a 10-week long program for primary school students to learn about the role of sustainability in the urban economy.
