After achieving a score of A- for several years, resulting in “Leadership” status, BASF was awarded the highest possible A rating in 2018. Companies at this level stand out due to the completeness and transparency of their reporting, their approaches for managing the opportunities and risks associated with climate change, and clear corporate strategies to reduce emissions.
“Our inclusion on the CDP Climate Change A list confirms that climate protection is firmly embedded in our strategy and a clear sign of our ownership. Our goal is CO2-neutral growth until 2030,” said Saori Dubourg, member of the Board of Executive Directors.
To meet BASF’s climate target, the company is continuously optimizing existing processes, gradually replacing fossil fuels with renewable energy sources and developing radically new low-emission production processes
CDP again acknowledged BASF as a global leader in sustainable water management. The organization awarded BASF with an A- rating in recognition of its actions to manage water more sustainably.
