Dow named to Dow Jones Sustainability World Index for the 20th year


Today, Dow (NYSE: DOW) was named to the Dow Jones Sustainability World Index (DJSI) by S&P Dow Jones Indices and RobecoSAM, the investment specialist focused exclusively on Sustainability Investing. This is the 20th year Dow has achieved this prestigious ranking as one of the top companies in the global chemical industry in terms of sustainability performance.

"We are humbled to be named to the Dow Jones Sustainability World Index, continuing our sustainability progress as the new Dow," said Mary Draves, chief sustainability officer and vice president of environment, health and safety. "Through our 2025 Sustainability Goals and the power of our people, we strive to create long-term value for our shareholders and sustainable solutions for our customers and society."

In addition, Dow was named to the DJSI North America Index. Dow performed particularly well in the Customer Relationship Management, Operational Eco-efficiency, Labor Practice Indicators, and Corporate Governance categories of the assessment. These scores are a reflection of how sustainability continues to be a catalyst for success.
