BACKGROUND
Above grade and below, inside and out, Dow's extensive portfolio of insulation
solutions helps save energy and manage moisture in a broad array of applications and
climate conditions.Select an insulation material:STYROFOAM Brand extruded
polystyrene, THERMAX brand polyisocyanurate insulation, STYROFOAM brand
spray polyurethane for commercial applications.Reduce costly air infiltration.
Minimize moisture intrusion. As part of an integrated approach to weatherization and
improving a building's energy efficiency, create an airtight and moisture-resistant seal
with one- and two-component sealants from Dow that quickly bond to common
building substrates for a flexible, long-lasting seal.Easy to dispense. Specially
formulated for a robust bond. Adhesives from Dow offer dependable, long-term
service for a wide variety of applications and are compatible with most construction
materials.More information can be found at http://www.dowbuildingsolutions.com

 Manufacturer Comments

Dow insulation, sealants and adhesives work as a system to improve the energy
efficiency of buildings by providing insulation, reducing air infiltration and offering
moisture protection. Greenhouse gas (GHG) emission reductions achieved through
the use of insulation from Dow allow for an improved life cycle of the building.

3.3 MANUFACTURING
3.3.2 Manufacturing Process

What is the company's specified goal for reducing energy consumption?
Dow will reduce energy intensity 25 percent from 2005 to 2015. Global Energy
Efficiency Team Leaders will lead implementation by driving the development of
major site and business 2015 goals, and the development of specific plans to meet the
goals. Global Energy Efficiency Team members will define business and site-level
goals, plans and action steps. Dow will use existing systems and processes to track
energy use, calculate intensity and report energy intensity.
What is the percent reduction achieved by unit of product over the specified period?:
25
Enter Base year for period.: 2005
Enter Reporting year for period.: 2015

What is the company's specified goal for GHG reduction?
We believe that climate change is one of the most serious issues our society faces
today. The world’s climate is impacted by increases in greenhouse gas (GHG) levels,
and though the exact results of this development are not yet fully understood, we will
take aggressive action to mitigate it. We are committed to being part of the solution
for this issue through the products we make, the science and technology we develop,
and the way in which we optimize our own processes. We also believe that the
long-term nature of the climate change problem requires different solutions over
different timeframes. In the short-term (10-30 years), we will optimize the use of
existing energy sources, while we help drive the search for breakthrough energy
technologies and processes that will fundamentally address the problem long-term.
