Dow Announces Energy Plan for America


Dow’s Energy Plan Outlines a Comprehensive, Bipartisan Approach to Policy Reform

The Dow Chemical Company today called for a bolder, comprehensive, bipartisan national energy policy that will help stabilize prices, strengthen the economy, increase security, clean the environment and revitalize U.S. manufacturing with the release of Dow’s Energy Plan for America.

“The new Administration and Congress will need to implement a plan that includes all possible options to meet the energy challenges facing the United States,” said Andrew Liveris, Dow chairman and CEO. “Greater energy efficiency coupled with an acceleration of alternative sources of energy, including renewables, clean coal and nuclear with increased domestic, environmentally-friendly production of oil and natural gas, should be the major touchstones of any comprehensive strategy.”

Dow’s Energy Plan for America advocates the following actions:

* Encourage aggressive energy efficiency and conservation
* Increase and diversify domestic energy supplies
* Accelerate development of alternative and renewable energy
* Reduce greenhouse gas emissions

“The U.S. is on a course to spend more than $500 billion per year to import oil — nearly the amount authorized one time for the financial rescue package recently passed by Congress,” said Liveris “At Dow, we believe a new comprehensive energy policy is critical to the overall economic health of the nation.”
