Our promise to our customers, industry, society and each other is to deliver our best.

We can only do that by being open to the full range of experiences and perspectives that our differences provide. Diversity + Inclusion are cornerstones of our corporate values of creativity, openness, responsibility, and entrepreneurial spirit.

BASF’s Diversity + Inclusion programs foster an inclusive workplace encouraging real engagement among all our employees to help us deliver on our aspiration to be the leading chemical company for our customers.

At BASF, we all belong to something bigger. #BelongAtBASF
