Taking responsibility for a better climate

Our climate protection goal



The transition toward a climate-friendly society remains one of the fundamental challenges of the 21st century.

We are an energy-intensive company striving to keep greenhouse gas emissions down to the 2018 level while increasing production. We aim to grow our sales volume by 50% while reducing specific emissions by 30%. To achieve this goal and stay cost-effective, we are reinventing our processes and technologies—a complex challenge we can only meet together.

A joint effort


Energy and climate policies

We need a climate and energy policy framework that is predictable and stable as well as market-oriented and cost-effective. For this reason, BASF engages in the political debate working towards solutions that protect the environment and are both socially responsible and economically feasible.

First BASF Climathon

We are looking for answers to global challenges – climate change, resource scarcity, and population growth. At the same time, sustainability is emerging as a business driver. We can come up with the best solutions – together.
