We drive sustainability into our business.


As BASF sustainability means for us that we bring in balance economic growth, environmental protection and social responsibility. But visions, alone, do not drive action. The focus of our team is to integrate sustainability into BASF strategies and decision making.

We work on the integration of sustainability aspects into BASF strategies. This includes the positioning of businesses in the context of sustainability. We check that the strategies are in alignment with BASF´s sustainability targets and principles. As well we anchor sustainability aspects into investment decisions of BASF.

With our sustainability expertise we can support the business experts with processes, products and strategies.
