Social engagement

Through social engagement at BASF, we aim to contribute to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals through two approaches: Corporate Citizenship and Starting Ventures.

We also initiate business-oriented projects to improve the quality of life of low-income consumers and value chain partners in developing and emerging countries.
