Our solutions: Products for climate protection
BASF products are involved in a large number of climate protection technologies. They enable energy efficiency and climate protection in a variety of sectors, such as building and living, mobility, energy and agriculture.
Our goal is to continually increase the contribution of our current products for climate protection, as well as of new products and solutions. We invest about half of our annual expenditures for research and development (R&D) on product and process innovations where the R&D target is related to energy/resource efficiency and climate protection.
Building and Living
By 2050, nine billion people will live on our planet, three-quarters of them in cities. Growing urbanization will require new concepts in housing and construction. Sustainability is an essential factor for our future. What does our path look like? How can we tackle the new challenges together?
Reducing CO2 emissions, meeting recycling targets and improving air quality are industry challenges we all are facing. Limited availability of fossil fuels and climate change call for more efficient cars and lower emissions. “We create chemistry for a sustainable future” – according to this purpose we develop chemistry that drives us from A to B with a cleaner footprint.
With our connected offer of products, technologies and services, we want to transform agriculture for the better by making a positive impact on the agricultural food system and ultimately on society. We believe that digitalization is at the core of this transformation and has the power to impact billions of people.
BASF supports the deployment of wind power as a climate-friendly source of energy. BASF’s innovative solutions are a contributory factor in the more efficient manufacturing and maintenance of rotor blades, bases, towers and gears for wind turbine systems.
