BASF investigates production sites adjacent to Internationally Protected Areas
We periodically investigate our production sites around the world to revise which are located near internationally protected areas.
Our last evaluation revealed that 2% of our production sites (excluding Oil & Gas) are adjacent to a Ramsar Site and 2% to a Category I, II or III protected area of the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN). None of our production sites are adjacent to a UNESCO protected area. Our 2015 analyses revealed no impact of our activities on biodiversity in the investigated areas.
