Dow Chairman and CEO Liveris Honored by Appeal of Conscience Foundation

Founder Recognizes Liveris’s Leadership and Advocacy for Businesses
to Better Serve the Global Community

MIDLAND, Mich.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Andrew N. Liveris, chairman and chief executive officer of The Dow
Chemical Company (NYSE: DOW), received the 2016 Appeal of Conscience
Award from the Appeal of Conscience Foundation Monday evening at the
Foundation’s awards dinner in New York. The Foundation, an interfaith
organization founded by Rabbi Arthur Schneier in 1965, works on behalf
of religious freedom and human rights throughout the world.

In honoring Liveris with the award, Rabbi Schneier said that Liveris is
“An innovative and visionary business executive, recognized for his
leadership, ongoing philanthropy and passionate advocacy for
international corporations to use their resources and vast reach across
boundaries to better serve the global community.”

“It is a true honor to receive this award,” said Liveris. “The old
mindset that companies have to choose between doing well and doing good
has been revealed as a false choice. More than ever, in this era of
sustainability, you can do well by doing good. That is our philosophy at
Dow. It is the center of our strategy and the key driver of our
company’s future growth. It is, above all, what motivates us to come to
work every day.”

The Foundation also honored at the event French President François
Hollande with its World Statesman Award and Carlos Slim Helu, honorary
chairman of Grupo Carso, honorary chairman of América Móvil and chairman
of the Carlos Slim Foundation, Telmex Foundation.

Past Appeal of Conscience Award honorees include Mary Barra, CEO and
chairwoman of the General Motors Company, Robert Iger, chairman and CEO
of The Walt Disney Company, and Jeffrey Immelt, CEO of General Electric,
among others.
