The BASF Strategy
Sustainable Development is about advancing BASF proactively. It is about ensuring that we continue to earn the trust of our stakeholders and extending our license to operate. Operating in this manner means recognizing sustainability as a long-term competitive advantage.
It means combining economic success with environmental protection and social responsibility. And, combined with the other three strategic guidelines, it is what will enable BASF to shape a successful future.
In 2002 BASF established 10 year goals for the global corporation in the areas of Environment, Safety and Product Stewardship. These goals call for a reduction in emissions, improvements in worker and transportation safety and the acquisition of basic safety and heath data for all chemical substances handled within BASF in quantities greater than 1 ton per year.
