MIDLAND, Michigan – May 19, 2023 – Dow (NYSE: DOW) has earned three 2023 SEAL (Sustainability, Environmental Achievement & Leadership) Business Sustainability Awards (BSA). The environmental advocacy organization recognizes specific initiatives, products, services, and innovations ranging from large companies to emerging start-ups for their industry leadership, innovation, and commitment to sustainable business practices.

Three Dow technologies were recognized across two SEAL categories: one Sustainable Product Award, and two Sustainable Innovation Awards. The product-focused category recognized submissions that were deemed innovative, impactful and “purpose-built” for a sustainable future, whereas the innovation-based category selected recipients for representing game-changing ideas that draw us closer to a more sustainable future.

“Each of these simultaneously high-performing and sustainable products and innovations are making significant advancements in their respective markets and helping Dow realize its ambition to be the world’s most innovative, customer-centric, inclusive, and sustainable materials science company,” said A.N. Sreeram, senior vice president, Research & Development, and chief technology officer. “We will continue to innovate alongside our customers and value chain leaders to deliver a sustainable future through our materials science expertise and collaboration.”
