For BASF, it is important to have a continuous dialog with various stakeholder groups. We leverage the expertise of our stakeholders in our own advisory bodies, global networks and worldwide initiatives. The importance and long tradition of stakeholder engagement for BASF can be seen, for example, in the fact that we have been a founding member of the U.N. Global Compact since more than 20 years ago. As member of the U.N. Global Compact, we consistently support responsible business and the Sustainable Development Goals. In addition, BASF has established 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, because sustainability topics are becoming ever more complex. At the first meeting, the participants worked out what BASF and other stakeholders can do to contribute to a successful energy transition.
The following table now shows numerous examples of our stakeholder engagement as well as selected results.
