Integrating Sustainability at Dow Chemical

Abstract:
Using a thoughtful approach, Dow is evaluating new chemistry carefully. The company is "looking" at nanotechnology, Wallin said, but also trying to determine its impacts on health and safety. "That's the challenge with science. Your knowledge is going to be finite. You will know more in 50 years. You have to take the knowledge you have. We have experts in every field of toxicology. They're following the literature, they're doing research. Science does not prove a negative. You have to manage uncertainty as you make decisions „ź take as holistic a look as you can. Some opportunities we're going to let pass by. That might sound difficult for a small company, but in a big company there's no shortage of great ideas and opportunities."
