Corporate Social Responsiblity

Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) at Dow India goes much beyond community projects – being a responsible corporate citizen and protecting the environment is an inherent part of the sustainability ethos at Dow India, touching every aspect of our business and presence in the sub-region. Every initiative under the ambit of Corporate Social Responsibility at Dow India is strategically aligned to the tenets of our larger CSR philosophy and effectively utilizes not only the monetary contribution, but also our material, technology and employee volunteerism.

Key tenets of Dow India CSR Philosophy:

Jaipur Foot: Since 2005, Dow India has collaborated with the NGO Bhagwan Mahaveer Viklang Sahayta Samiti (BMVSS) to support people with disabilities. In partnership with Pinnacle Industries and the Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO), Dow India developed and delivered an artificial foot that was more robust, light weight and flexible. Around 20,000 limbs are offered free of cost every year through this arrangement and over 700 Dow volunteers have engaged with this project till date.

Multiply the Message: Dow India is committed to improve environmental education in schools. Dow India has partnered with Trailblazers in the conceptualization and implementation of this initiative, where teachers are given means to communicate environmental terms and concepts through hands-on activities.

Habitat for Humanity: As a partner to Habitat for Humanity, Dow India helps build affordable homes in rural communities since 2006. In line with our global commitment, the projects leverage Dow products and technologies as well as sweat equity in the form of volunteer support from Dow employees. Dow India has directly aided Habitat for Humanity in funding over 250 homes across rural, under privileged sections in India.

Dow-Agastya Mobile Science Lab: In collaboration with NGO partner Agastya, in 2015 Dow India launched the initiative of mobile science lab with easy, affordable scientific models and experiments aimed to help children understand and apply basic concepts of science, while piquing their curiosity and logical thought. The Mobile Science Lab aims to reach schools without access to a science lab, in rural, remote or underprivileged areas and impact over 10,000 children in the age group of 6-15 years every year.
