BASF-HochhausFounded in 1865, BASF is the world's leading chemical company: The Chemical Company. Its portfolio ranges from oil and gas to chemicals, plastics, performance products, agricultural products and fine chemicals. The company serves customers and partners in almost every country of the world from close to 100 large and numerous smaller production sites worldwide. As a reliable partner BASF helps its customers in virtually all industries to be more successful. In 2007, BASF had more than 95,000 employees and posted sales of almost €58 billion.

Verbund is one of BASF's greatest strengths: At the company's six Verbund sites worldwide, BASF links production plants intelligently to save resources and energy. BASF's largest Verbund site is located in Ludwigshafen, Germany. This is where the Verbund idea was first developed and optimized before being implemented at further sites around the world.

As the world's leading chemical company, BASF plays an important part in shaping the future, using innovations to face challenges and seize opportunities. Through its extensive research activities, BASF opens up new growth areas, develops innovative products and solutions and at the same time ensures the company's long-term technical and methodological edge. BASF is focusing on five growth clusters: energy management, nanotechnology, white (industrial) biotechnology, plant biotechnology and raw material change.

At the beginning of 2008, BASF became the world's first industrial company to present a comprehensive carbon balance for its operations. The balance shows that BASF products can save three times more greenhouse gas emissions than the entire amount caused by the production and disposal of the company's products.
