Dow announced a carbon partnership agreement with Singapore Sports Hub, a fully integrated sports, entertainment and lifestyle hub. It is the first and largest public-private-partnership (PPP) sports facility infrastructure project in the world and is owned and operated by SportsHub Pte Ltd, according to a press release. This collaboration marks the first carbon mitigation project in Singapore under Dow’s carbon partnership with the International Olympic Committee (IOC) and the first property owner collaboration within the program.
Dow’s 10-year participation in The Olympic Partner program and its tenure as the Official Carbon Partner of the IOC concluded at the end of 2021.
Dow silicone structural glazing (SSG) technology, DOWSIL 791 Weatherproofing Sealant and DOWSIL 795 1-Part Structural Sealant, were used to seal the façade and roof panels of the Singapore Sports Hub stadium, retail and indoor office areas. According to, Dow states its silicone solutions helped the property achieve a net greenhouse gas emission reduction of approximately 126 metric tonnes of CO2e over January 2016 to December 2020, helping further offset the operational carbon footprint of the IOC. It is estimated that approximately 1450 metric tonnes of CO2e will be saved over the lifetime of the building (calculated as 60 years).
