Dow CEO Jim Fitterling receives the 2022 ICIS CEO of the Year Award for outstanding achievement as voted on and recognized by his peers in the ICIS Top 40 Power Players.

This global chemical industry award was presented to Fitterling during a virtual fireside chat with ICIS covering Dow’s strategy and outlook, along with key topics such as decarbonization, plastics recycling, government policy impacts, new projects and macroeconomic outlook.

The ICIS CEO of the Year Award is unique in the industry as the winner is selected based on a vote among chemical industry CEOs in the ICIS Top 40 Power Players – a global ranking of “leaders driving the greatest positive impact on their companies and the chemical industry.” In selecting the winner, each of the ICIS Top 40 Power Players votes for three individuals based on achievements in:

· Profitability/shareholder value

· ESG (environmental, social and governance)

· Innovation (technology, product, business process)

· Success in M&A/portfolio management

“Dow CEO Jim Fitterling is leading the charge on decarbonization and sustainability with game-changing plans to build the industry’s first net-zero carbon cracker site, and also become the largest consumer of feedstock derived from plastic waste. Jim is also an excellent cultural leader who promotes inclusion and drives innovation both within Dow and the industry as a whole,” says Dean Curtis, CEO of ICIS, in a press release from the organization.

Previous winners of ICIS CEO awards as voted on by the ICIS Top 40 Power Players include BASF CEO Martin Brudermuller (2021), Saudi Aramco CEO Amin Nasser (2020), former LyondellBasell CEO Bob Patel (2019, 2018), former BASF CEO Kurt Bock (2017), INEOS chairman Jim Ratcliffe (2016), former Dow CEO Andrew Liveris (2015), former LyondellBasell CEO Jim Gallogly (2014) and former PPG CEO Charles Bunch (2013).
