About This Meeting

The manufacturing industry is fueling a transition to a low-carbon economy. In a fireside chat, Fitterling will discuss how the U.S. and other countries can support this much-needed transition with smart policies. He’ll also outline the ground-breaking steps Dow is taking to be a leader in decarbonization at an industrial scale and how the company is demonstrating that sustainability is both possible and profitable.

You’ll hear:

  • The steps the U.S. can take to support the energy transition and bolster manufacturing.
  • How smart international policies can activate our collective climate ambitions.
  • Why Dow is building the world’s first net-zero carbon emissions cracker complex in Canada.
  • How – and why – Dow is partnering to be the first manufacturer to install advanced small modular nuclear technology at one of its U.S. manufacturing sites.
