Our updated “We create chemistry” strategy defines ambitious goals for the future. Our values serve to guide our actions.
The strong growth momentum from the previous year continued in the first half of 2011. However, this was followed by significantly weaker growth in the second half of the year.
We want to recruit and retain the best talent,
and in doing so, we value diversity in our teams.
The BASF share traded at €53.89 at the end of 2011, 9.7% below its closing price one year earlier.
In 2011, BASF considerably surpassed the record levels of 2010 in sales and earnings, and we once again earned a high premium on our cost of capital.
