Change for climate

It's people making the change for climate happen

Every small action moves us towards big change. That’s why everyone at BASF, no matter where they are or what they do, is making climate protection a priority. Alongside big projects like reducing CO2 emissions, wind and solar farms, electrification of our factories and helping customers reduce their carbon footprints, our employees are making personal changes to protect the climate too. It's this drive, and these brilliant people who are helping to fuel a much bigger transformation. We call them our "Change Makers".
