Creating solutions that have a positive impact on society and communities close to where we operate is an important aspect of our mission and core Global Citizenship values. It is only when we collaborate with all stakeholders, including customers, suppliers, academia, community, governments and NGOs, that we can effectively address social and environmental challenges that drive business results and support local economies.
Fuel fraud is a major global challenge today, negatively impacting governments, citizens, and consumers. Fuel laundering, a type of fuel fraud, is the criminal act of removing government fuel markers that are in fuels allocated for lower-taxed essential uses, such as agriculture and home heating, and selling them for higher taxed uses such as automotive to avoid taxes that generate necessary revenue for governments.
Our ESG efforts aren’t just about improving and growing our business. They also are about building a more sustainable world and helping our customers and partners do the same.
It’s clear that the complex environmental, economic and social challenges our world faces cannot be solved with yesterday’s thinking. As we celebrate Dow’s 125th anniversary this year, we are reflecting on our heritage of eagerly taking on finding answers to the most pressing challenges and focusing on how we Imagine Better to build a strong foundation for a sustainable and equitable future. It is central to our purpose, to our growth strategy, and to driving best-in-class performance and accountability.
By committing to service and community, we’re helping to build an even stronger foundation for Dow and our stakeholders in the next 125 years.
“The area where we are the greatest is the area in which we inspire, encourage and connect with another human being.” These wise words from the poet, activist and scholar Maya Angelou capture the essence of why volunteering and service are so important.
As a Company, we truly believe that connection doesn’t just improve people’s lives – it supports community, unity and collaboration, and in turn enables us together to address our society’s most pressing challenges.

May is Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage (AAPI) Month and an opportunity to celebrate and reflect on the diverse Asian heritage that can be found across Dow. As we celebrate Dow’s 125th anniversary this year, I imagine a better, more equitable future for all. To get there, I really believe that true diversity and inclusion must be cultivated every day. And I’m glad and proud that this has always been and will always be deeply embedded in Dow’s culture and practices. But, we can always do more as we face new or changing developments in society.
