Sustainability News – March 2020
The global Corona pandemic shows how vital international cohesion, solidarity and our responsibility for each other are. “We find ourselves in a very challenging situation. But we have proven time and again that we are particularly strong in times of crisis,” said Martin Brudermüller, CEO of BASF SE in his recent address to employees. Highest priorities are to keep employees safe from the effects of a Corona virus infection and to maintain business operations. “This is not only important for us, but also for our markets and the society. Many of our products are urgently needed right now,” said Brudermüller. As a voluntary contribution, BASF started producing and providing free hand disinfectant to hospitals in its neighboring Rhine-Neckar metropolitan region.
