Global Compact Principles

1

In BASF SE 100%

2

BASF complies with the laws and respects the customary practices of the countries in which we operate. In Germany, for example, co-determination applies. In addition, we are committed to internationally recognized labor and social standards (i.e. ILO core labor standards and OECD guidelines for multinational companies), which ensure constructive cooperation with employee representatives. In this respect, we have also developed global monitoring tools.

3

BASF commits itself to the implementation of global standards and reviews this implementation. Human rights aspects are part of our risk management system for investment planning. The effects of our direct investment in Nanjing, China, on the sustainable development of the site were analyzed in a study by the German Society for Technical Cooperation (GTZ) and are publicly available. As founding member of the Global Compact, we strive to contribute to the protection and awareness of human rights within our spheres of influence.

4

Employees worldwide can anonymously and confidentially contact a telephone hotline concerning questions on compliance with labor and social standards.
