Who we are


BASF first committed itself to the concept of Sustainable Development on October 13, 1994 – specifically within the framework of its adopted Vision 2010 – and this date therefore marks the birth of sustainability at BASF.

Over the following years, BASF provided sustainability with a scope of action and an organizational structure. The concept was incorporated into the company’s values and guidelines, as well as in the strategy. BASF also developed structures to establish sustainability at the highest level of its organization.
