In dialog with society
By participating in the public debate, we want to contribute to an objective and constructive discussion.
This also allows us to exchange different arguments and promotes an understanding of the wishes and concerns of our stakeholders. Only with this knowledge can we respond adequately and decide upon suitable measures.
BASF is the first and so far only company in Germany to organize a regular dialog forum. At the Dialog Forum Nano founded in 2008, we meet with representatives of environmental and consumer organizations, trade unions, scientific institutes and churches to discuss current political and social developments and issues.
After completion of the first dialog phase, in 2011 we again broadened the circle of participants to include representatives of close-to-consumer companies. The participants cooperate in developing recommendations on how to ensure that information and transparency can be guaranteed throughout the product lifecycle of nanomaterials.
