Change for the climate
Our goal is net-zero emissions by 2050. How is that possible for a company in the energy-intensive chemical industry? It’s ambitious, for sure. But we’re confident we can get there. That’s because, in our pursuit of change, we’re leaving no stone unturned, questioning everything that can be questioned, and finding inspiration in surprising places.
It is the people who make change for climate possible at BASF
Watch what happens behind the scenes: With every small action BASF takes to change for the climate it’s actually the people behind the scenes making climate protection a priority. It is their passion and their drive that makes the transformation possible.
We call them our Change Makers – and these are their stories...
A detailed roadmap to ensure we act with rigor.
We have an established track record in reducing our global CO2 emissions. Since 1990, we’ve almost halved them. And, by 2030, we want to reduce our emissions by a quarter compared to 2018. By 2050, in accordance with the Paris Climate Agreement, we’re aiming for net-zero CO2 emissions1.
1 The goal includes Scope 1 and Scope 2 emissions. Other greenhouse gases are converted into CO2 equivalents according to the Greenhouse Gas Protocol
