Energy and raw materials

  • Products that help customers conserve resources, save energy and make renewable energies more economic in the long run
  • Three-pronged approach: efficient energy production, savings through the Energy Verbund and successful energy management
  • Quantitative goal to increase energy efficiency

The conservation of resources is one of our fundamental economic principles. We focus on efficient energy generation technologies, energy-efficient production and comprehensive energy management. We also make products that help conserve resources.


We offer our customers products and technologies that help them conserve resources, save energy and make renewable energies more economic in the long run.

We focus on the responsible use of raw materials in our own production: As a company in an energy-intensive industry, our success depends on the long-term security of our supplies of energy and raw materials. For us, energy efficiency is the most important means of combining climate protection, resource conservation and economic benefits. That is why we have started a program to increase our energy efficiency – measured as the volume of sales products produced in relation to the energy required for their production – which includes a global goal for our production processes. We take three approaches to meeting our goal: efficient energy generation; savings through our Energy Verbund; and our energy management, which includes all those activities we use to analyze and continue to increase energy efficiency at BASF plants.
