Success is a question of sustainability


Help us to drive sustainability into our business.

For us sustainability means bringing in balance economic growth, environmental protection and social responsibility to ensure long term business success. Just talking about it isn't enough, so the Sustainability Strategy Team gives its best to integrate sustainability into BASF strategies and decision making. Thanks to our sustainability expertise we can support the business experts with processes, products, and strategies.

We support BASF Group's activities with regard to sustainability by providing consulting services to assess business opportunities and risks, evaluate products and processes, and support the development of business strategies and investments. In this journey, we need to act together decisively - with and for our customers and other stakeholders - and true to our value proposition "we create chemistry for a sustainable future".

As an intern in Sustainability Strategy you will be part of the BASF family from day one. You will be involved in challenging fields of activities and have the opportunity to work on exciting projects in an interdisciplinary environment.

Please apply online for our published internship positions or send us your unsolicited application, including your intended period of internship.

You bring with you 3-6 months for the internship and are studing science, economics or humanities and have earned above-average grades. Ideally, you have already gained practical experience and show a strong interest in the field of sustainability.

You convince us with your personal skills as a team player with own ideas and initiative. In addition to that, you know how to apply your strategic thinking to BASF's advantage and you are able to quickly familiarize yourself with complex matter.

As sustainability for BASF is a holistic approach, the variety of tasks and topics in the Sustainability Strategy team stretch from developing strategic business models to business consultancy, Life Cycle Assessment, performance tracking and the evaluation of sustainability opportunities and challenges.

You will support our team in the development and implementation of BASF sustainability strategies. Amongst other things you will be involved in running internal sustainability workshops for new business opportunities for the whole of BASF .

Furthermore, you will be responsible for benchmarking and researching tasks on specific topics. In addition, you will be responsible for the scientific evaluation of specific topics and their sustainability impacts.

An internship at the BASF Sustainability Strategy team will give you a first insight into our work and you can follow how strategies are realized in our day-to-day work.

You will work in an engaged team and create important new contacts - which may one day bring you back to BASF after your studies.
