We create chemistry for a sustainable future. We want to contribute to a world which has a sustainable future with a better quality of life for everyone in it. We do this by creating chemistry for our customers and society and by optimally using the available resources. We live according to our corporate goal. We do that by: purchasing and producing as responsibly as possible, acting as a fair and reliable partner, connecting creative thinkers to find the best solutions for market needs. That's what we understand by successful business.
Our six business segments (Chemicals, Materials, Industrial Solutions, Surface Technologies, Nutrition & Care, Agricultural Solutions) are based on related products, customer sectors and production processes. This enables us to combine our competencies more effectively and to bring our products and solutions to market faster.
Verbund is the key to our portfolio and one of the most important tenets of BASF. Verbund is the physical integration of production, market platforms and technologies which connect the companies to facilitate the efficient use of resources and strengthen our expertise. With its six Verbund sites and 347 extra production sites, BASF supports customers and partners in nearly every country in the world.
