The people of Dow Corning run for a cause


Dow Corning, a global leader in silicones, participated in the Dream Run Race, part of the Standard Chartered Mumbai Marathon 2010 on 17th January.

About thirty employees of Dow Corning in India took part in the Dream Run in order to raise funding for ATMA, a non-governmental organization (NGO) that works in the field of education for the underprivileged.

Speaking on this event, Jean Paul Mollie, Dow Corning’s region president for India and the Middle East said “Wherever we are based, we aim to build and maintain positive relationships with the communities where we live and work. The Mumbai Marathon is one such avenue by which we can make a difference to the people who need it the most. This marathon is special to us because 2010 is also the tenth anniversary of Dow Corning in India.”

Dow Corning is also active in the villages around their manufacturing facility near Pune, partnering with the villagers to construct Anganwadis (day care centers) that provide underprivileged children with shelter, education, nutrition and healthcare. The company has also piloted a solar project at Karde village, which provides solar electricity to the local Anganwadi and school.

At Dow Corning, we support the principle of sustainability through our business strategies, processes, products and solutions. As a global corporate value, sustainability involves focusing on and creating balance among its three main pillars: economic prosperity, environmental quality and social equity.
