BASF Group's Position Statement on Human Rights
Inspired by the United Nations Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights, BASF lives the responsibility to respect Human Rights. Our new Group position on Human Rights has been approved by the Board of Executive Directors in Summer 2019 headed by our CEO Martin Brudermüller.
It refers to internationally recognized standards and has been approved at the most senior level. It stipulates conduct rules towards own employees and management. It states our expectations towards business partners. It empowers relevant internal actors to further embed Human Rights aspects in our operations and procedures and it is communicated internally and externally.
