Fulfilment & Comment

GC Principles

1

The total weight or volume of direct material used is not reported, as this information could be linked back to our production capacities and is therefore proprietary information.

2

The BASF Resource Verbund, i.e. the intelligent connection of production plants along our value adding chains, often makes it possible to use by-products from one plant as the raw materials for another plant. Thus, BASF saves raw materials and energy costs.

3

The in the chapter Energy and raw materials stated amount of used energy indicated in MWh can be translated in GJ according to the repoting guidlines of GRI.

4

The majority of our energy supply is provided through BASF’s own power plants. Compared to conventional electricity and steam generation, BASF saved more than 12 million MWh of fossil fuels in 2011 thanks to the use of environmentally friendly combined heat and power plant technology. We buy energy from numerous energy suppliers worldwide. Currently, our energy suppliers do not provide us with the distribution of their primary energy sources globally. We are examining the use of renewable energy sources.

5

For our corporate mobility concept at our site in Ludwigshafen the use of company bicycles plays an important role. In total we provide there 14.000 bicycles to our employees for use on the site and for their journey to and from work. About 5.000 employees make use of the bicycles for their way to and from work. Around 12% of the employees use the public transportation system. For employees using car pools that consist of at least three people we provide special parking lots. The current corporate carbon footprint takes into account the emissions from transport of goods as well as business trips.

11

Because of our products and business model, composting, on-site storage and deep-well injection are no material disposal methods for BASF.

12

There have not been any significant spills in the last reporting period of 2011.

13

Our specifications and measures for transportation safety include the delivery, storage and distribution of chemicals between all BASF sites, their suppliers and customers. We focus on global standards, an efficient organization and reliable partners for logistics. Our transport safety advisors are equally important. They take care of compliance of all transportations with internal, national and international regulations. If an accident occurs despite all of our preventive measures, we provide swift assistance and our transportation safety advisors subsequently evaluate all of the information. We are active in networks that provide information and assistance in case of emergency..

14

The majority of the used water is used for cooling. Only about 12% gets into contact with products. We recool the water for reducing the temperature of the cooling water before returning it into water sources.

15

Because of the BASF product portfolio this indicator has no relevance. A large part of our products is sold in bulk. Regarding used packaging material we comply with legal regulations. Besides the dual systems for recollecting packaging materials in the residential areas established e.g. in Germany and other European countries, also the return and recovery of industrial and commercial packaging is organized by take-back systems focusing on the recycling of the different fractions (plastics, steel, etc.) of the packaging material. We want to offer all our costumers an efficient, competent and responsible way for return and recovery of used packaging. Therefore, we inform them amongst other things about companies providing take-back solutions for all kind of packaging in use.

16

If there are risks from litigation and claims, these are published in the Financial Statements

17

We primarily transport our products in bulk in ships, tank wagons or tank container by road, rail and waterways. Our works mobility concept at Ludwigshafen, our largest site, received an external award in 2006. The use of company bicycles plays an important role in this concept. Our employees have access to 14,000 bicycles to use on site as well as on their way to work. About 5,000 employees use these bicycles for their journey to work. About 12% of our employees use public transport, and parking places are reserved for carpools that consist of at least three people. Our corporate carbon footprint takes into account emissions caused by transportation and business trips:  basf.com/carbon_footprint

18

Rainwater collected and waste water from other organizations are not reported because there are not material in the context of our overall water management.
