Dow continues to be a global champion of Responsible Care® and has worked to broaden the application and impact of Responsible Care® around the world through engagement with suppliers, customers and joint venture partners.
In Canada, Dow was instrumental in developing Responsible Care® and continues to be a leader in Responsible Care® efforts. Dow Canada’s membership is maintained through Chemistry Industry Association of Canada (CIAC).
Dow believes third-party verification and transparent public reporting are cornerstones of world-class EH&S performance and building public trust. Numerous Dow sites in Europe, Latin America, Asia Pacific, the United States and Canada have received third-party verification of Dow’s compliance with Responsible Care® and with outside specifications such as ISO-14001.
During the verification process companies are independently audited by public advocates, industry experts, and local community representatives who ensure the Responsible Care® ethic and principles for sustainability are being sustained. In 2016, Dow Canada received its seventh successful Responsible Care Verification. And in 2020, a CIAC verification of Dow Canada at our West Hill site showed we uphold the Responsible Care ethics and have effective management systems in place.
