We create chemistry for a sustainable future
We want to contribute to a world that provides a viable future with enhanced quality of life for everyone. We do so by creating chemistry for our customers and society and by making the best use of available resources. Sustainability is at the core of what we do, a driver for growth as well as an element of our risk management.
For example, we have defined sustainability focus areas within our corporate strategy. These formulate the commitments with which BASF positions itself in the market and how it aims to meet the growing challenges along the value chain.
With the circular economy, we decouple economic growth from resource consumption. This means we conserve our planet’s limited resources and use them as efficiently as possible.
To drive the transformation, BASF has launched a new Circular Economy Program. We have set ourselves ambitious goals: By the year 2030, we aim to double our sales generated with solutions for the circular economy to €17 billion. To achieve this, we are concentrating on three action areas: circular feedstocks, new material cycles and new business models. As of 2025, we aim to process 250,000 metric tons of recycled and waste-based raw materials annually, replacing fossil raw materials.
Business success tomorrow means creating value for the environment, society and business. We have set ourselves ambitious global targets along our entire value chain. We report transparently on our target achievement so that our customers, investors, employees and other stakeholders can track our progress.
