DOW CHEMICAL CEO POPOFF RECEIVES RENE DUBOS ENVIRONMENTAL AWARD

 MIDLAND, Mich., May 20 /PRNewswire/ -- Frank Popoff, chairman and CEO of The Dow Chemical Company (NYSE: DOW), has been presented with the Rene Dubos Environmental Award by The Rene Dubos Center for Human Environments, Inc., an independent education and research organization. Popoff, who received the award Wednesday night, was recognized for his leadership within the international business community and his commitment to sustainable development and pollution prevention programs.
 The other 1993 award recipient was Sir Shridath Ramphal, president of the World Conservation Union (UCN), a scientific, non-governmental organization.
 First presented in 1983, the Rene Dubos Environmental Award annually recognizes and honors those individuals whose outstanding actions have contributed to developing significant strategies for dealing with the social and humanistic aspects of environmental problems. The award is presented to individuals from government, academia, industry, media or public interest groups. This year, the Rene Dubos Center steering committee solicited nominations for leaders in the area of sustainable development.
 Dr. William R. Eblen, president of The Rene Dubos Center, said, "Frank Popoff and Sir Shridath emulate the purpose of the award. The distinguished careers of both recipients have furthered environmental literacy within educational institutions, the workplace and communities worldwide. They epitomize the Dubos axiom and the Center's motto, 'Think globally, act locally.'"
 The presentation of the 1993 awards launched a two-day Dubos Forum, focused on the topic of international trade and sustainable development. The Rene Dubos Center for Human Environments, Inc. is an independent, non-advocacy, research and education organization founded in 1975 by the eminent scientist and humanist Rene Dubos, professor emeritus at The Rockefeller University. Its goal is to develop creative policies for the resolution of environmental conflicts and to help decision-makers and the general public formulate new environmental values.
