Dow Chemical – GMOs – 2014 (status: Withdrawn; Company will address)
Political spending and corporate money in politics is a highly contentious issue, and may expose
companies to significant business risks. The risks to shareholder value are illustrated by the
public controversy surrounding the use of The Dow Chemical Company (Dow)’s corporate
treasury funds to defeat Proposition 37, a controversial ballot initiative in California that would
have required companies to label products containing genetically modified organisms (GMOs).
