BASF in sustainability indexes

  • DJSI World: particular recognition for risk and crisis management, human capital development and plant biotechnology
  • CDLI: repeated inclusion verifies transparency of BASF’s reporting; top score once again in Materials sector

The BASF share has been included in the Dow Jones Sustainability World Index (DJSI World) for the thirteenth year in succession. The analysts particularly recognized our commitment in the areas of risk and crisis management, human capital development, and plant biotechnology. As one of the most well-known sustainability indexes, the DJSI World 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 CDP, BASF is among the ten leading companies in the world in reporting on climate protection. The CDP represents 722 institutional investors, with around $87 trillion in assets under management. We were once again included in the CDP Global 500 Climate Disclosure Leadership Index (CDLI) in 2013, already making a total of nine times. The CDLI contains 60 companies that disclose their climate protection data in a particularly transparent and comprehensive manner. As in previous years, we were the top scorer in the Materials sector.
