We take a holistic view: Reducing emissions along the value chain

All aspects are important to us - we look at the full lifecycle. When calculating the greenhouse gas emissions linked to our activities, we consider the entire value chain. We look at the supply of raw materials and precursors, production at BASF and emissions from the use of end products and from disposal. Emissions are analyzed in detail and we obtain pointers on where the influencing factors for preventing greenhouse gas emissions are to be found.

The illustration below gives an overview on the various sources for emissions. We analyze the details transparently and comprehensibly in our corporate carbon footprint.
