Olympics: No Dow Chemical branding on 2012 stadium

The organisers of the 2012 London Olympics yesterday said that Dow Chemical's name will not appear on a fabric 'wrap' around the main stadium, in an issue which sparked threats of an Indian boycott.

India is opposed to the company's involvement with the Games because of its links to the 1984 Bhopal gas disaster which killed tens of thousands of people in the Indian city.

The London organisers, LOCOG, said it was never their intention Dow's name would be on the wrap during the Games, but Dow had now also agreed that its branding will not now even appear on five 'test' panels either.
