BASF aims at CO2-neutral growth

Chemicals company BASF has set a target to keep its greenhouse gas emissions flat at the 2018 level until 2030, according to a new report.

The company plans to improve the management, efficiency and integration of its plants and, wherever possible, purchase a greater share of electricity from renewable energy sources. The company has already reduced its greenhouse gas emissions by 50% in absolute terms compared to 1990 levels, while doubling its production volumes in this period.
