CSR Europe and the Agenda 2030

CSR Europe is a leading European network of more than 10.000 companies working together towards a more sustainable future. With the SDGs in mind, CSR Europe aims to work with leading businesses and Stakeholders to develop an overarching strategy to create a sustainable Europe 2030 and drive the implementation of the EU’s agenda 2019-2024.


Importance of Europe for BASF

The EU and its member states play a leading role for the negotiation and adoption of the agenda 2030 for a sustainable development as well as for the SDGs. The European values are integrated in the agenda and Europe’s previous results and developments show in a variety of areas that Europe is a driving force for the global transformation. BASF agrees with the view of an increasing imperative to actively pursue sustainability topics at European level. BASF's commitment – together with other companies - to CSR Europe is to trigger positive impacts for a sustainable development not only in Europe, but worldwide.
