Diversity + Inclusion:
Our differences make us successful
At BASF, we are proud to commit ourselves to the inclusion of diversity, not only for the benefit of our company, but also for the further grow of Europe as a whole. #EmbraceDifference
The promotion of diversity is an integral part of our corporate strategy and is anchored in the values of the BASF Group. Derived from this, our global competency model and the global Code of Conduct provide a framework for action for our entire team.
Our leaders play a key role in implementing our values. Thereby we support them with training offers about how to deal with each other and lead in a fair and motivating manner. The company-wide inclusion of diversity is also an essential component of strategic human resources work.

As a founding member of the foundation PrOUT@work, we support the matters of LGBT*IQ people (Lesbian, Gay, Bi, Trans, Intersex). Since 2018, BASF is a member of the United Nations’ global code of conduct for LGBTIQ. In the global Business for Inclusive Growth initiative BASF and ca. 40 other companies partner up with the OECD and G7 for a fair, sustainable and inclusive growth path.
