dc.description.abstractAs one of the largest industrial consumers of energy in the world, The Dow Chemical Company and its 46,000 employees have put energy efficiency at the very core of its business – both as a cost savings initiative and as a primary corporate social responsibility. Dow’s sustained commitment to achieving specific short-and-long-term energy efficiency goals is accomplished through the company’s proven Energy Efficiency and Conservation Management System. By committing to comprehensive goal setting, meticulous energy measurement, tracking and reporting, benchmarking, continuous efficiency improvement, utilization of energy best practices, and fully engaging employees, Dow exceeded its aggressive 2005 goals to reduce overall energy intensity by 22 percent from 1995 to 2005. Over a 10-year period, Dow saved more than $4 billion, conserved over 900 trillion Btus and mitigated an estimated 51 million metric tons of CO2 equivalent greenhouse gas, which is like taking more than 6.5 million cars off the road for one year.en_US
