The Dow Chemical Company and the Nature Conservancy have announced a collaboration to help Dow recognize, value, and incorporate nature into its global business goals, decisions, and strategies. The organizations will work together to apply scientific knowledge and experience to examine how Dow’s operations rely on and affect nature. The aim is to advance the integration of the value of nature into business practices, and to plan action to protect natural systems. Results of the collaboration will be shared publicly and through peer review.

SeedCo, the leading seed manufacturing company in Zimbabwe, has launched a “transforming livelihoods” initiative. The project aims to positively change the lives of orphaned and underprivileged children through the country. Through the program, SeedCo will assist students in need with tuition fees, school uniforms, and seeds for food crops.
