BASF was again included in the Dow Jones Sustainability World Index (DJSI World). The company received special recognition by the analysts for its climate strategy, its risk and crisis management as well as the practices in human capital development. The DJSI World is the most important sustainability index and represents the top 10 percent of the largest 2,500 companies in each industry included in the Dow Jones Global Index.

“We are very pleased that BASF is again listed in the Dow Jones Sustainability Index”, said Dr. Ulrich von Deessen, Climate Protection Officer and head of BASF's Competence Center Environment, Health & Safety. “Difficult times especially show that companies which conduct their businesses sustainably and responsibly are more successful in the long-term. That's why sustainability is a firm part of BASF's strategy. The listing in the DJSI confirms that we are on the right path with putting this strategy into practice.”

BASF shares are included in the DJSI World for the ninth year in succession. In 2008, the company led the Dow Jones Sustainability Index as best performing chemical company.

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). This year, SAM scrutinized almost 90 criteria. Among others, the questions referred to customer satisfaction, compliance, product stewardship and climate protection as well as occupational health and safety.

BASF is the world's leading chemical company: The Chemical Company. Its portfolio ranges from chemicals, plastics and performance products to agricultural products, fine chemicals as well as oil and gas.
