This petition was rejected

The Government e-Petitions Team gave the following reason:

Dow Chemical is a Worldwide IOC Olympic Partner and therefore one of 11 ‘TOP’ partners for the London 2012 Games.

The IOC has sole responsibility for negotiations concerning worldwide Olympic sponsors. Therefore, this is not a matter for the Government, or the London Organising Committee of the Olympic Games and Paralympic Games – who have their own domestic sponsors for the London 2012 Olympic Games and Paralympic Games.

The Olympic Charter sets out the role that the IOC play within the Olympic Movement and makes a number of commitments, including to support the promotion of ethics in sport. Further information about the IOC and the Olympic values they promote is available on their website: http://www.olympic.org/en/content/The-IOC/The-IOC-Institution1/
