WHY: Launched in 2002, the US BCSD is a non-profit association of businesses whose purpose is to create and deliver value-driven sustainable development projects in the United States. The group plays a key role in communicating the benefits of sustainable development to the U.S. business community, and implementing projects that apply sustainable development principles to real world problems.

"At Dow Chemical we implemented a set of environmental performance targets that required an investment of some $900 million, and so far, that investment has achieved a return of $2.7 billion.
