GOLDSTEIN JOINS DOW'S CORPORATE ENVIRONMENTAL ADVISORY COUNCIL

 GOLDSTEIN JOINS DOW'S CORPORATE ENVIRONMENTAL ADVISORY COUNCIL
 MIDLAND, Mich., May 21 /PRNewswire/ -- Dr. Bernard D. Goldstein, a leading toxicologist and expert in the area of environmental health, has joined The Dow Chemical Company's Corporate Environmental Advisory Council, an external group of global policy and opinion leaders who are providing input on how the company can elevate its environmental, health and safety performance.
 Goldstein is a professor and chairman of the Department of Environmental and Community Medicine at the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey's (UMDNJ) Robert Wood Johnson Medical School. He is also director of the Environmental and Occupational Health Sciences Institute, a joint program of Rutgers University and UMDNJ.
 A physician who is board certified in internal medicine and hematology, Goldstein formerly served as assistant administrator for Research and Development with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. He has been a member of the World Health Organization's Commission on Health and Environment and chaired its Panel on Industrialization. Goldstein has a bachelor's degree from the University of Wisconsin and a medical degree from the New York University School of Medicine. He has authored or co-authored nearly 100 journal articles.
 "Dr. Goldstein's experience and skills in risk assessment and environmental and occupational health make him a valued asset to our Council," said Dow President and CEO Frank Popoff. "The expertise he brings to the table can only help our ongoing efforts to ensure that our products and processes are safe and do not harm the environment."
 Said Goldstein: "I look forward to working with a leading corporation like Dow in a way I hope will ultimately be beneficial to the environment. I see this as an opportunity to use my experience in environmental health to positively influence a company whose activities directly impact this field."
 The Corporate Environmental Advisory Council was formed last October. Its purpose is to advise the company on environmental, health and safety issues and policies, and help it become more responsive to public concerns. Thus far, two meetings have been held in Midland, Dow's corporate headquarters. Future meetings will be held in Midland and other locations. Goldstein is the eighth person to join the Council. The remaining two to three members will be named later this year.
 The first two Council meetings have given panel members an opportunity to gain insight into how the company operates. A variety of topics have been discussed, including environmental auditing, communicating to the public, and the company's two core businesses -- Plastics and Chemicals and Performance Products.
 "Even in the short time frame of two meetings, we have begun to benefit from Council members' experience, judgment and advice," said David T. Buzzelli, Dow's vice president and corporate director of Environment, Health and Safety, and chairman of the Council. "They have given us suggestions for our environmental strategy and have made a positive contribution to an early draft of a new global environmental policy statement for our plastics business."
 Other members of Dow's Corporate Environmental Advisory Council are Anthony Cortese, dean of Environmental Programs, Tufts University, Medford, Mass.; Pierre-Marc Johnson, former premier of Quebec, Canada, who currently practices law in Montreal and teaches and conducts research at McGill Law School and the Centre for Medicine, Ethics and Law; Jacqueline Aloisi de Larderel, former deputy director of the Pollution Prevention Directorate of the French Ministry of the Environment, Paris.
 Also, Timothy O'Riordan, professor of Environmental Sciences, University of East Anglia, Norwich England, and associate director of the Centre for Social and Economic Research on the Global Environment; Philip Shabecoff, executive publisher of Greenwire, and former environmental correspondent for The New York Times; Lee Thomas, former administrator of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, currently chairman of Law Environmental, Inc., an environmental engineering and earth science consulting firm, Atlanta; and Joanna Underwood, president of INFORM, an environmental research organization based in New York.
