How we create value
Financial and nonfinancial value drivers make an essential contribution to BASF’s success. We want to understand how these work together, and derive targeted measures for increasing the positive impact of our actions and further minimizing the negative effects. This intention forms the basis of our integrated reporting.
The following overview provides examples of how we create value for our company, the environment and society. It is modeled on the framework of the International Integrated Reporting Council (IIRC).
