Carbon Management

We focus on climate protection with carbon management.

At BASF, we are aware of our responsibility for climate protection as well as the challenges our  customers have to face regarding the changes that come with it. Therefore, our goal is to enable our customers to lower CO2 emissions.

Our Carbon Management is built on three pillars:

FL_Sustainability_Carbon3.png

Increase process and energy efficiency, reduce nitrous oxide emissions

FL_Sustainability_Carbon5.png

Develop breakthrough technologies for low-emission production

Increase the share of renewable energies in power supply

BASF is setting itself even more ambitious goals on its journey to climate neutrality and wants to achieve net zero emissions by 2050. Overall, BASF plans to invest up to €1 billion by 2025 to reach its new climate target and a further €2 billion to €3 billion by 2030. At the heart of the long-term tran-sition toward net zero CO2 emissions by 2050 is the use of new technolo-gies, which will replace fossil fuels such as natural gas with electricity from renewable sources. Most of these technologies are being pioneered by BASF in collaboration with partners and are currently in a pilot stage.

“The new climate goals underscore our determina-tion and BASF’s commitment to the Paris Climate Agreement. Climate change is the greatest challenge of the 21st century. In response, we must adapt our pro-cesses and our product portfolio. We need to accelerate this transformation now. We must first concentrate on the initial steps of this journey, not the final ones. That is why BASF will increase its use of renewable energies. And we will accelerate the development and deployment of new CO2-free processes for the production of chemicals. With transparency and offerings to systematically and incrementally reduce the carbon footprint of BASF products throughout the entire value chain, we help our customers in all industries to reduce the carbon footprint of their own products.”
