Integrated corporate report on economic, environmental and social performance
BASF aims to reduce its greenhouse gas emissions by 25% by 2030 compared with 2018 and achieve climate neutrality by 2050. A key lever on this path is the gradual conversion to energy from renewable sources. As part of our make & buy approach, we are building and expanding our own renewable power assets worldwide, and we are securing renewable energy sources by entering into long-term supply agreements. The photos show Rebecca Kuo. Together with Javier Cuellar (left) and Christopher Dorow (right), she helped to expand BASF’s green power supply in North America in 2022 – for example, with power purchase agreements for solar energy totaling almost 300 megawatts. One of the recipients will be BASF’s Verbund site in Freeport, Texas, where we will be able to meet the site’s entire expected demand for purchased power with renewable sources.
