How we create value
BASF’s success is supported by both financial and nonﬁnancial value drivers. We want to understand how these interact, 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). Both ﬁnancial and nonﬁnancial value drivers – such as environmental, production-related, personnel and knowledge-based factors, along with aspects of society and partnerships – form the foundation of our actions. Through our business model these inputs are transformed into various outputs – the results of our actions.
