GRI and Global Compact Index
In the BASF Online Report 2022, our sustainability reporting follows the standards of the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI). The information provided in the BASF Online Report 2022 also serves as a progress report on the implementation of the United Nations Global Compact’s ten principles, while taking Global Compact LEAD’s Blueprint for Corporate Sustainability Leadership into consideration. Subsequently, the index provides information on how we contribute to the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
If no information is shown for a GRI indicator, we offer an explanation. In order to improve clarity, the GRI indicators in the BASF Online Report are shown directly on the corresponding pages.
KPMG has provided limited assurance on all sustainability-related information and indicators in the “BASF Online Report 2022” for the business year 2022 that the GRI Content Index is referring to. Where in this table comments or explanations are given to GRI indicators, the information is included in the scope of the assurance.
The universal standards offer a general strategic overview of the organization’s sustainability.
The guidelines organize topic-specific standards into three categories: economic, environmental and social. Within the specific standard disclosures, each indicator is allocated to the material topics.
