Dow shared its new sustainability targets to achieve carbon neutrality by 2050, at the 4th Industry-University Research Collaboration Forum, hosted by China-UK Low Carbon College (LCC), Shanghai Jiao Tong University (SJTU), this week. The event was attended by academic society, government, NGO and private sector.
“I am glad that the students are intrigued by Dow’s Sustainability Targets and Dow’s 2025 Sustainability Goals. At Dow, we have a responsibility and an opportunity to lead in addressing these global challenges. A sustainable future is attainable, but only if we continue to tackle these issues head-on, hold ourselves accountable, and work together to enable new science- and technology-based solutions. Dow openly collaborates with universities worldwide to develop and train the next generation workforce for a sustainable future.” Dr. Dong Jing said, Asia Pacific EH&S and Sustainability Director of Dow.
“This is the right timing for low-carbon development in China, in collaboration with the rest of the world.” Prof. Changying Zhao said, Dean of LCC. “LCC aims for world-class innovation in higher education and research crossing international borders. Dow’s world leading sustainability vision and practices definitely attract the students and inspire them for a deep-dive in low carbon research and innovation.”
