World Water Day at Dow

Accelerating change through action and collaboration

We all depend on water. Yet growing populations and climate change are intensifying the problems of water stress and scarcity worldwide. At Dow, we envision a water-secure world where communities, business and nature prosper, with abundant access to clean water.

Recognizing that water is a shared and finite resource, we are working to accelerate water stewardship in our own operations and to innovate water-saving products. We also are collaborating to build resiliency in our supply chain and in the communities and ecosystems where we operate. Discover how we are taking action to accelerate change.
