BASF has been ranked on first place in the Corporate Social Responsibility Benchmark ranking by NetFederation a German consultancy. The Benchmark evaluates the overall significance of CSR-activities and shows how companies deal with sustainability topics.
The BASF website offers the user an insight into the company`s sustainability strategies and supports the dialogue with user and stakeholder groups.
Since 2003 NetFed evaluates 100 sustainability websites of selected large companies on an annual basis. The ranking takes into account 89 criteria that are weighted differently, e.g. if clear sustainability strategies and goals can be found on the website or if it provides further background information about sustainability topics. BASF has regularly made the Top 5 over the last years and has made it to the top this year.
