Dow Named to JUST 100 List for Fourth Consecutive Year
Dow, a leading global materials science company, has once again been recognized by JUST Capital as one of America’s most just companies, earning the 55th overall position in 2023. This marks the fourth consecutive year that Dow has been named to the prestigious JUST 100 list, reflecting the company’s commitment to prioritizing just business behavior.
This year, Dow secured the top spot for Communities in the Chemicals sector, demonstrating its dedication to creating jobs in the U.S., respecting human rights across its supply chain, contributing to community development, and giving back to local communities. The company’s efforts to improve its standing in the JUST 100 list paid off, resulting in an 11-point improvement from last year.
Since 2015, JUST Capital has surveyed over 160,000 Americans on what issues they believe U.S. companies should prioritize when it comes to just business behavior. This year, JUST evaluated 951 companies across 5 stakeholders, 20 issues, and 245 raw data points to produce the 2023 rankings which showcase the top 100 companies doing right by all their stakeholders.
Dow’s Chairman and CEO, Jim Fitterling, said “Dow has a focused set of actions and successful results behind our ambition to be the most inclusive, customer-centric, innovative, and sustainable materials science company in the world.” He added that the recognition by JUST Capital is an indicator of Team Dow’s outstanding progress and a reminder that the journey is far from over. “We are committed to being a just company for the benefit of all our stakeholders,” he said.
JUST Capital, in partnership with CNBC, evaluates and celebrates U.S. corporations that outperform on the issues that matter most to the American public, such as creating jobs in the U.S., paying a fair living wage, acting with integrity at the leadership level, supporting workforce retention and training, protecting worker health and safety, providing benefits and work-life balance, protecting customer privacy, minimizing pollution, and more.
“There has never been a more important time for businesses to step up, do right by their workers, and restore trust in capitalism and the American Dream,” said JUST Capital CEO Martin Whittaker. “This year’s JUST 100 leaders demonstrate that just business truly is better business.”
