BASF was recognized as one of the most sustainable chemical companies in Brazil by the well-established sustainability guide entitled Guia Exame de Sustentabilidade. The guide is published once a year in Brazil's leading business magazine “Exame”.
The great position in the index was achieved as a result of great achievements in all three dimensions of sustainability – the economic, social and environmental pillar – as well as successful tools to measure sustainability, for example AgBalance™.
The magazine highlighted how the BASF AgBalance™ methodology, implemented in South America in partnership with the Espaço ECO® Foundation, supports farmers to advance sustainable farming through informed, fact-based decision making.
