The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) honored The Dow Chemical Company (NYSE:DOW) as one of the honorees of the 18th annual U.S. Presidential Green Chemistry Challenge Award, for the development of EVOQUE™ Pre-Composite Polymer Technology. This win marks the ninth time that Dow and its affiliates have received this recognition, more than double any other company since the award’s inception in 1996.
“We are honored to be recognized again by the EPA,” said David E. Kepler, Chief Sustainability Officer and executive vice president of Dow. “Sustainable innovation is a driving force behind Dow’s mission and we are constantly working to develop solutions that exceed customers expectations. EVOQUE™ delivers a great combination of performance and sustainability. It’s a win-win.”
The U.S. Presidential Green Chemistry Challenge Award is presented annually to organizations that incorporate the principles of green chemistry into chemical design, manufacture, and use. Dow’s past recognitions span innovation across a broad number of applications, including environmentally-friendly insect control, synthetic pathways that reduce carbon dioxide waste, and an environmentally safe marine anti-foulant.
