Partnerships for Sustainable Agriculture
Agriculture’s far-reaching impacts make it equally crucial to widen our view and gain new insights by entering multidisciplinary partnerships across agricultural value chains. Partnership is essential if we are to successfully drive advances in sustainable agriculture. Together, we can help farmers grow healthy, affordable, high-quality food safely and protect the land that we all hold in trust for future generations.
We are a team of dedicated people who care about the future of farming. We apply our knowledge and passion to help farmers find the right balance to achieve better yield.
Transformation requires partnership
We fully support the implementation of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) to establish and foster sustainable business practices at economic, social and environmental level.
We focus on topics where we as a company can make a significant contribution, such as food security, climate action, responsible consumption and partnership.
BASF hosts roundtable discussions on cotton at the United Nations headquarters
Farmers across the globe are working to meet the ever-increasing demand for sustainably grown cotton. BASF brought together a global delegation of farmers from Europe and the United States to ensure their voices are heard and supported. This is one way how BASF contributes to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.
What is our approach?
Agricultural transformation requires collaboration across the entire food value chain, engaging all stakeholders from industry players to academia, NGOs and civil society to name a few. Farmers, suppliers, agronomists and other experts need to join forces to develop the farming methods of the future for farmers around the world to continue to make an adequate income, protect the land, and provide the world with abundant, healthy, and affordable food. This complex balance can only be achieved through more public and industry investment in agricultural research, dialogue, and the responsible, thoughtful behavior of everyone involved.
