We perform at operational excellence level in the efficient use of natural resources, environment, health and safety.

Our commitment to safety and industry-leading business performance are essential to the success of our company, our history and our license to operate in communities around the world. Environment, health and safety have always been central to Dow. This has been embedded in all Dow work processes and laid down in the 2005 goals for E (environment), H (health) & S (safety) since 1995. Also in the 2025 Dow Sustainable Objectives, we document that we strive to achieve operational excellence in the areas of safety, efficiency in the use of natural resources, emissions, environment and health. And as we do so, we seek to inspire our industry partners to do the same.

The icon is an optical illusion: depending on how you look, you see a shield symbolizing safety or a three-dimensional building symbolizing our businesses and industry.
