Ecology and economy belong together at BASF


Accept responsibility for environmental protection.

Value-adding growth can be implemented in the long-term when economic success matches environmental and social responsibility. We therefore rely on efficient, environmentally friendly processes to use fewer resources and lower emissions and waste. In order to achieve the BASF’s global objectives, we have established monitoring instruments.

We have already achieved a lot: Since 1990 we have managed to nearly halve our greenhouse gas emissions and at the same time double our production volume. By 2020 we want to reduce our greenhouse gas emissions by 40% per ton of product sold compared with 2002 - and we are confident that we will achieve this objective.

We are looking for strong personalities who take environmental protection as seriously as we do.

In addition to having graduated in environmental technology, environmental engineering, environmental management or a similar subject, you bring with you a careful and analytical way of working.

Your technical expertise and persuasiveness help you to establish yourself as a recognized and committed expert - both when contacting internal and external partners as well as with public authorities.

If you combine these qualities with high performance and a sense of responsibility, our interdisciplinary expert team will be delighted to meet you.

Our environmental competency center is based in Ludwigshafen, Germany. Exciting deployment areas are waiting for you here and in other locations in Germany and abroad. For example:

  • Noise protection and technology
  • Air monitoring
  • Water and waste water management
  • Environmental analytics
  • Earth and groundwater protection
  • Waste management
  • Approvals


We establish globally valid environmental objectives and are monitoring their status. Our comprehensive analysis lab provides support for all of the monitoring, management and advice activities.

When implementing specific regional environmental protection measures, or managing them globally, you will take on the following tasks:

  • Advice and solutions for technical noise protection and noise in the workplace and for neighbors
  • Tasks relating to air emissions and immissions
  • Legal advice and solutions for waste disposal
  • Development and monitoring of waste water protection concepts
  • Monitoring drinking, flowing, and ground water as well as heating and cooling systems
