Our position on hydrogen
Issues and Positions
BASF advocates across a broad range of issues which are related to our company. Our focus is on advocating for:
- A global level playing field in energy and climate policies
- Free and fair trade policy and market access
- Evidenced-based decision making of regulatory approvals
- Sustainable development
- A research driven policy making and a society open for innovation
As part of our dialog we regularly contact and meet with government departments, members of parliament, NGOs and other stakeholders in many of the countries where we do business.
Hydrogen is an essential raw material for the chemical industry and becomes increasingly important as a new energy vector that could significantly contribute to reducing the carbon footprint of our society. Therefore, the European Union and many countries worldwide are working on hydrogen strategies.
