BASF was again included in the global Dow Jones Sustainability Index. The company has been recognized for its engagement in risk and crisis management, human capital management and plant biotechnology. The DJSI World is one of the most renowned sustainability indices and represents the top 10 percent of the largest 2,500 companies included in the Dow Jones Global Index.

The BASF share is included in the DJSI World for the 13th consecutive year. The listed companies have to demonstrate continuous improvement every year with regards to sustainability and are assessed by analysts from Sustainable Asset Management Group (SAM).

CDP Global 500 Climate Disclosure Leadership Index

According to CDP, an international organization that compiles environmental information from companies, BASF is among the leading companies in climate protection reporting worldwide. The company is listed in the CDP Global 500 Climate Disclosure Leadership Index (CDLI) for the ninth time.

CDP represents 722 institutional investors holding around $87 trillion in assets under management. Investors use CDP indices as assessment tools.

The CDLI 2013 contains 60 companies that disclose their data in a particularly transparent and comprehensive manner. As in previous years, BASF is the top scorer in the Materials sector.
