We maximise benefits and minimise risks.
BASF continually aims to improve the environment, health and safety performance of its products throughout the entire life cycle. That means that we are committed to the responsible and ethical management of our crop protection products – from discovery and development right through to distribution, use and recycling, as well as the final disposal of empty containers. This universal product stewardship is a key corporate initiative.
Why is this so important? The responsible management and use of our crop protection products helps to enable sustainable agriculture and safeguards the environment and public health. By maximising benefit and minimising risk, this is about sustaining our future and making the world a better place for our children.
Product stewardship is an ethical and business imperative for a sustainable intensification of farming. Nine billion people will have to be fed on our existing land resources by 2050. This calls for creative, smart, and sustainable solutions.
