The BASF Report combines our financial and sustainability reporting and is addressed to readers interested in both areas.

In addition to our integrated corporate report, we publish further information about sustainability issues online. Links to this supplementary information are provided in each chapter. Our sustainability reporting has been oriented toward the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) framework since 2003.

The information in the BASF Report 2013 also serves as a progress report on BASF’s implementation of the ten principles of the United Nations Global Compact and takes into consideration the Blueprint for Corporate Sustainability Leadership – an action plan initiated as part of the Global Compact LEAD platform. The Information relevant to the principles of the Global Compact symbol indicates information on the implementation of the ten principles and the Blueprint for Corporate Sustainability Leadership. If the symbol appears at the end of a chapter, the entire content of the chapter is relevant. The GRI and Global Compact Index provides information on GRI indicators for topics relevant to the Global Compact principles. An expanded overview is available online.
