BASF: Ambitious Goals for Environment, Health and Safety

BASF SE, Ludwigshafen, Germany, has established new ambitious environmental, health and safety goals. The company wants to increase its energy efficiency – defined as the amount of sales products in relation to the primary energy demand – worldwide by 35 % by 2020, compared to the previous goal of 25 %. In addition, The company aims to reduce greenhouse gas emissions per ton of sales product by 40 %, originally set at 25 %.

Additional new environmental goals were set by BASF for the responsible use of water as a resource. By 2020, the company plans to cut in half the current amount of drinking water it uses for production compared to 2010. It also intends to establish sustainable water management systems at all production sites in areas of water stress. In the last years the company played a decisive role in the development of the European Water Stewardship Standard, a voluntary European industry standard for the responsible use of water.

Health protection will be measured by BASF worldwide with the help of a new “Health Performance Index.” The index comprises five criteria: reported cases of occupational diseases, medical emergency planning, first aid, preventive medicine and health promotion. To improve occupational and transportation safety, the company wants to reduce the number of accidents by 2020.
