"We foster dialog based on honesty, respect and mutual trust." This principle is an integral element of BASF's strategy and applies to all issues of concern to BASF and naturally also to nanotechnology.

A young technology offers many opportunities but also raises questions. This is why we at BASF are seeking dialogue with all stakeholders and interested parties in order to understand concerns more fully, explain opportunities and answer questions, including those relating to safety. Through openness, transparency and respectful interaction we want to assist in creating suitable framework conditions for the responsible use of nanotechnology.


… with society

BASF conducts an open and trusting dialogue with society. The public debate surrounding nanotechnology offers a dual opportunity for the company.
By introducing its know-how, BASF can contribute to an objective and constructive discourse. At the same time, every exchange improves our understanding of the concerns, wishes and doubts of involved persons and enables us to address them.


… with politics

As with society, BASF also cultivates a dialog with politics. Nanotechnology also offers great potentials for the competitiveness of European industry. Innovation-friendly social and political framework conditions are essential if these potentials are to be fully utilized. To be actively involved in shaping them, BASF also participates in the political debate surrounding nanotechnology.
