02.12.2024 By Tank Terminals - NEWS

February 12, 2024 [Dow]- The Dow Chemical Company (“TDCC”), a wholly owned subsidiary of Dow (NYSE: DOW), announced today the closing of its green bond offering of $600 million aggregate principal amount of 5.150% notes due 2034 and $650 million aggregate principal amount of 5.600% notes due 2054.

 

The notes represent the Company’s inaugural green financing instrument, in alignment with Dow’s Green Finance Framework (“Framework”) published on our website on January 25, 2024. The Framework was established to support the execution of Dow’s sustainability strategy and achieve its targets focused on climate protection and a circular economy. Dow intends to allocate proceeds from this offering toward projects that meet eligibility criteria contained within the Framework, including expenditures and investments related to our Fort Saskatchewan, Alberta Path2Zero project. Additional details on eligibility criteria and use of proceeds are available in the Framework.

“This green bond offering marks a foundational opportunity for investors to participate in Dow’s strategy to decarbonize and drive circularity while growing earnings over the cycle,” said Jeff Tate, Dow’s chief financial officer. “We expect the proceeds of this instrument to primarily support our project to build the world’s first net-zero Scope 1 and 2 emissions ethylene and derivates complex in Alberta, which achieved the critical milestone of final investment decision from our Board in November 2023.”

In 2020, Dow announced its intention to be carbon neutral for Scopes 1+2+3 plus product benefits by 2050. The commitment included a mid-term target to reduce by 2030 the Company’s Scope 1 and 2 net annual carbon emissions by 5 million metric tons versus its 2020 baseline. Achieving this 2030 target represents a total 30% emissions reduction versus Dow’s 2005 level.

Additionally in 2022, Dow announced its Transform the Waste strategy – which will enable the development of circular ecosystems by transforming plastic waste and alternative feedstock to commercialize 3 million metric tons per year of circular and renewable solutions by 2030.

Carbon emissions refers to GHG emissions in carbon dioxide equivalent (CO2e).
