The auditor company PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC) honored BASF with the “Building Public Trust Award” for the Report 2015. The prize was awarded for the first time and is geared towards companies that credibly report on non-financial aspects such as sustainability, risk management and corporate governance in addition to the conventional elements of business reports.
To this end, PwC analyzed the reports of 40 DAX and MDAX companies regarding their levels of implementation. BASF receives an award in the category “integrated report”. The report was “compact and easy to read and addresses a broad spectrum of economic, ecologic and social topics,” said the jury of experts. The graphic “How we create value” played a decisive role in winning the award, as it displays the connections between financial and non-financial value drivers created by BASF in accordance with the framework of the International Integrated Reporting Council (IIRC).
The award ceremony was held in September in Frankfurt am Main.
