At the beginning of June 2015, BASF and thinkstep announced their intention to collaborate in the marketing of the Sustainable Solution Steering™ method developed by BASF for sustainable portfolio management. The two organizations have signed a licensing agreement that extends their existing alliance. Thinkstep is specialized in the development and marketing of sustainability software and has many years of experience as a sustainability assessment consultant. The aim of the licensing is to support BASF customers and other organizations in assessing and steering their product portfolio in line with sustainability criteria. More sustainable solutions can then be established across companies and throughout entire supply chains.
