Exclusive category: Chemicals, raw materials and compounds used across selected industries

World-changing solutions take teamwork and a belief that a breakthrough is only a moment of inspiration away. As a Worldwide Olympic Partner and the Official Chemistry Company of the Olympic Movement, Dow brings to the Olympic Movement a world-class portfolio of advanced, sustainable and leading-edge products that enable Dow to deliver solutions designed to meet almost any performance and business need – both on and off the field of play.

Dow’s involvement in each Games spans from field-of-play technologies – such as the innovative synthetic turf system for the Rio 2016 hockey pitches and the DOWTHERMTM Heat Transfer Fluids that maintained ice surface temperatures for the PyeongChang 2018 skating rinks – to venue construction, energy-efficiency, transportation and extended infrastructure, creating better experiences for athletes and fans alike.

As the Official Carbon Partner of the IOC, Dow is also delivering an innovative global carbon mitigation programme to compensate carbon emissions from the IOC's daily operations, helping achieve the carbon neutrality goal set out in the IOC Sustainability Strategy.

The carbon partnership builds on the successful carbon mitigation programmes implemented by Dow and the Organising Committees of the Olympic Winter Games Sochi 2014 and the Olympic Games Rio 2016, helping to mitigate unavoidable emissions and going beyond solely balancing the IOC’s footprint to creating a positive carbon legacy globally.
