Dow Collaborating to Promote Energy Efficiency and Support Sustainable Cities
The Dow Chemical Company is a part of the DowDupont Holding Company (DWDP), a business that is focused on agriculture, materials science and specialty product sectors that will lead their respective industries through productive, science-based innovation to meet the needs of customers and help solve global challenges.
Dow Building Solutions has introduced its joint effort with U.S. Green Building Council to provide solutions that will contribute to creating more sustainable communities and cities. Dow is seeking to establish carbon mitigation projects in built environments with an end goal to measurably reduce greenhouse gas emissions using improved energy efficiency in buildings.
Dow and U.S. Green Building Council will work together to advise two cities or communities to help achieve LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) certification. LEED is the world’s most widely using green building ration system.
“Many communities around the world understand the need to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and are looking for ways to achieve this strategy. We are proud to partner with USGBC, the indisputable leader of third party green building standards and certifications, through our shared vision of creating a sustainable built environment.” -Greg Bergtold, director of advocacy for Dow Building Solutions
