Dow Partners With Nature Conservancy

Department: Business
News Channels: Environmental SCENE
Keywords: corporate sustainability, conservation, natural systems

Dow Chemical will collaborate with the Nature Conservancy to examine how Dow’s operations rely on and affect nature. The organizations aim to develop a method that would assign a monetary value to natural systems, such as watersheds that provide clean water, and use those values in business decision making. Dow will commit $10 million to the project over five years. Scientists from Dow and the Nature Conservancy will share results publicly for other companies to test and use.
