BASF in sustainability indices

  • DJSI World: particular recognition for climate strategy, risk and crisis management and human capital development
  • CDLI and CPLI: repeated inclusion in sustainability indices attests to BASF’s transparency and exemplary climate protection activities

The BASF share has been included in the Dow Jones Sustainability World Index (DJSI World) for the twelfth year in succession. The analysts particularly recognized our commitment in the areas of climate strategy and risk and crisis management as well as human capital development. This important sustainability index represents the top 10% of the 2,500 largest companies in the Dow Jones Global Index based on economic, environmental and social criteria.

According to the non-profit organization Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP), BASF is among the ten leading companies in the world in climate protection. The CDP represents 655 institutional investors, with around $78 trillion in assets under management. We were once again listed in the CDP’s two renowned indices in 2012: BASF was represented for the eighth time in the Carbon Disclosure Leadership Index (CDLI) with an outstanding ranking. The CDLI contains 51 companies that disclose their data in a particularly transparent and comprehensive manner. As in previous years, we were the top scorer in the Materials sector. We have been listed for the third time in the Carbon Performance Leadership Index (CPLI) – ever since its beginning. The CPLI lists 33 companies based on their exemplary performance in climate protection activities such as climate strategy, stakeholder communication or management system.
