Good health is a basic human right

Our commitment to public health

BASF partners with international organizations such as Rotary International, The Carter Center and MENTOR in the belief that eliminating disease will not only lead the affected regions to better health and to beat poverty, but also empower their people to provide for themselves. As a major global corporation, we take our role and our social responsibilities seriously and strive to engage actively with our stakeholders. We think that the more we actively integrate all our stakeholders in dialogue, projects and partnerships, the greater the confidence they place in our business activities.
