Dow promises to wrap up UK Olympics


The London Organising Committee of the Olympic Games and Paralympic Games (Locog) has confirmed that worldwide Olympic partner Dow will produce a wrap that will encircle London's Olympic stadium.
The wrap will comprise 336 individual panels – each approximately 25 meters high and 2.5 meters wide – and will help the stadium become the visual centrepiece of the London 2012 Games, according to Locog. Installation will be completed by spring 2012 and the material will be recycled once the competition is over.
Dow UK managing director, Keith Wiggins, said: “Dow has a strong commitment to sustainability, as documented in our 2015 sustainability goals. This commitment and our focus on innovation and scientific excellence are behind every stitch of the wrap.
“We’re proud that the wrap will be in compliance with the Locog Sustainability Source Code. We recognise the global importance of the Olympic and Paralympic Games and of the work we do in addressing global challenges through chemistry.”
