Sector Benchmark

Note: Latest GHG and revenue data (based on tradingview.com) are used to calculate GHG emissions intensity by sector. The color scale of each bubble depends on the GHG intensity (GHG emissions per 1 million USD revenue). Sectors follow the Global Industry Classification Standard (GICS) that organize companies based on their primary business activities. The 11 sectors are : Information Technology, Health Care, Financials, Consumer Discretionary, Communication Services, Industrials, Consumer Staples, Energy, Utilities, Real Estate, and Materials.

Dow Inc. belongs to the sector Materials.

Offsets

Last update for Dow by zerotracker.net: Aug. 12, 2022
Planning to use external offset credits Not Specified
Separate targets for emission reductions and removals No
Conditions on use of offset credits None
Plans for carbon dioxide removal (CDR) Yes (unspecified)

Additional notes: Offsets: Refer to offsetting volatile organic and other compounds; unspecified with regard to CO2 offsets. "Dow will grow, but offset emissions of Priority Compounds, volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and nitrogen oxides (NOx)." - 2021 ESG Report "We are taking a phased, site-by-site approach to reducing our carbon footprint by replacing end-of-life and high carbon-intensity assets with more carbon-efficient technologies, and by investing in carbon abatement technologies, including circular hydrogen and carbon capture and storage." - 2021 ESG Report
