Global Compact is a business initiative of the United Nations focusing on corporate social responsibility. Companies joining Global Compact commit themselves to align their business strategies with ten principles in the areas of human rights, labor norms, environmental protection, and anti-corruption effort. As a founding member, BASF has supported the UN Global Compact since the year 2000.

The German Global Compact Yearbook 2014

The newly released yearbook of the German Global Compact Network (DGCN) “Global Compact Deutschland 2014” features the topics compliance, mandatory reporting, and data as well as climate protection, and it looks back on ten years of DGCN. The article by BASF – drawing on the example of actively steering the product portfolio towards sustainability – shows how BASF puts the principles of Global Compact into practice.

The international Global Compact Yearbook will be published later in 2015.
