The notion of sustainability can only be effective if it is firmly integrated into organizational and management systems. We have therefore created structures to promote sustainable business activities - from strategic planning to implementation.
BASF has introduced a new stakeholder engagement format with the Sustainability Lab. The Sustainability Lab is a further development of the Stakeholder Advisory Council. In the Sustainability Lab, BASF is now deepening specific sustainability topics, as sustainability topics are becoming ever more complex. With this new stakeholder engagement format, BASF aims at promoting exchange with representatives from business, science, politics, and civil society.
As cross-divisional and cross-regional teams, the Sustainability Communities work on practical challenges in implementing the sustainability strategy in their businesses and ensure consistency and knowledge sharing regarding sustainable development worldwide.
The Sustainability Strategy team supports BASF Group’s activities with regard to sustainability by providing consulting services to assess business opportunities and risks, evaluate products and processes, and support the development of strategies of different business units.
