DOW + RIVERS ARE LIFE
RIVERS ARE LIFE THRIVES UPON THE SUPPORT OF GLOBAL CONSERVATION-MINDED CORPORATIONS
Rivers are essential to the prosperity and health of the earth, supporting high rates of biodiversity compared to other ecosystems and providing livelihoods for millions of people.
Dow’s role as founding member of Rivers Are Life is rooted in its interest in protecting and restoring river ecosystems. Alongside reducing carbon emissions, the restoration of river ecosystems is an integral element of improving community and environmental health in the face of climate change. Dow believes that we all share a collective responsibility to preserve and protect these precious global resources.
By supporting local projects that focus on conserving marine resources and deploying them in a sustainable way, Dow and future members of Rivers Are Life can drive downstream progress on several of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, helping to solve the climate and carbon crisis and enabling a healthier, more sustainable planet.
At its core, Rivers Are Life recognizes that local efforts add up and have the power to create a global impact. Collectively, local education and preservation initiatives provide opportunities to create tangible progress. Through Rivers Are Life, Dow is investing in individual efforts by passionate heroes because just as every river begins at a source, every solution begins with people taking action to solve a problem.
