Our Targets

We have set ourselves ambitious financial and non-financial targets so that our customers, investors, employees and other stakeholders can monitor our progress.

We aim to:

  • Grow sales volumes faster than global chemical production.
  • Increase EBITDA before special items by 3% to 5% per year.
  • Achieve a Return on Capital Employed (ROCE) well above the cost of capital percentage every year.
  • Increase the dividend per share every year based on a strong free cash flow.
  • Grow CO2-neutrally until 2030.
  • Leverage our innovation power to achieve €22 billion in Accelerator sales by 2025.
  • Cover 90% of our relevant spend with sustainability evaluations by 2025, and 80% of our suppliers will improve their sustainability performance upon re-evaluation.
  • We want more than 80% of our employees to feel that at BASF they can thrive and perform at their best.

Safety for people and the environment as well as water management will remain a top priority for our operations and business conduct.

We measure our economic success along these targets.
