Environment Health and Safety

Dow Corning strives to be one of the most respected companies in the chemical industry for our concern for the environment, employee and community health and welfare, our safety performance, and our active support of regulatory systems like REACH and the American Chemistry Council's Responsible Care® program, which serves as the framework for our Guiding Principles (PDF). These systems guide our focus on our environmental impact as a company as we responsibly create products, processes and technologies that meet environmental and social needs. Our employees around the globe are committed to these goals as reflected in our  Environment, Health & Safety, Security and Quality policy(PDF).

Environment

Through continual investment in Environment, Health & Safety (EH&S) management systems, Dow Corning has achieved a global environmental ISO14001 registration (PDF) and a multi-site RC14001 certificate of registration(PDF), which includes our corporate headquarters. We're using our eco-innovation model and principles to help conserve precious natural resources, reduce waste and increase use of renewable energy materials. Learn more about Dow Corning's commitment to act responsibly in our own operations to protect the environment on our Sustainability web page.

Safety

Safety is one of the core values that drive our business decisions. In the firm belief that Safe work IS our job, we focus on preventing accidents, eliminating their root causes, and managing chemicals responsibly throughout their life cycles.  We work to ensure our products and services are safe, effective and their intended uses are accurately described, consistent with the principles of Responsible Care®.

Product Stewardship

Product Stewardship is one example of our Responsible Care® commitment, and can be demonstrated by the Product Risk Characterization, Prioritization, Management and Communication processes we have put in place.
