BASF's first economic, environmental and social report in China

BASF, the world's leading chemical company, will improve the information transparency of the company in Greater China and will release seven key indicators of finance, society and environment every year, including sales, number of employees, occupational safety, water, waste treatment, exhaust emissions and energy consumption. BASF Greater China today released its first report under the framework of this new principle, announcing the latest information about the company in the world's most dynamic chemical market

Dr. Ao Yunfeng, President of BASF Asia Pacific, said: "sustainability is the core of BASF's businesses, because sustained profitable growth can only be achieved by simultaneously undertaking social and environmental responsibilities. The first economic, environmental and social performance report released in China shows that we adhere to the application of globally unified standards to BASF's operations in Greater China."

Mr. guanzhihua, chairman of BASF Greater China management board, said: "We are pleased to release BASF's first report on Greater China. We will continue to monitor the data in order to make greater progress in economic, environmental and social performance. In the future, we will continue to report the performance of Greater China on the three pillars of sustainable development every year. Together with other communication channels, this report will become one of BASF's important actions to achieve a more systematic, consistent and transparent approach And constantly deepen our dialogue with stakeholders. "

since the 1990s, BASF has invested more than 2billion euros in Greater China, of which the main investment projects have been gradually put into operation in Nanjing and Shanghai since 2005. Over the past decade, our sales have increased by about 20% per year. During this growth period, BASF continued to improve key emission data through continuous optimization and innovation

2008 and the characteristics of wood plastic products such as resource utilization of raw materials, plasticization of products, environmental protection of industry, economic utilization and circular low-carbon can effectively alleviate the above problems. In 2008, the amount of greenhouse gases produced by BASF Greater China due to production and manufacturing was 1.8 million tons, a decrease of 5.2% over 2007. This emission reduction achievement has been achieved mainly through the implementation of technological transformation in BASF plant

energy efficiency, that is, the basic energy consumption per ton of products (fuel, electricity, steam, etc.) has increased, helping BASF Greater China reduce overall energy consumption and therefore emissions. In, we have increased energy efficiency by 50% in Greater China

BASF continues to optimize its production process to achieve the minimum emission of exhaust gas, waste water and solid waste. Air pollutants include inorganic compounds such as carbon monoxide (CO), sulfur oxide (SOx), nitrogen oxide (NOx), ammonia, as well as dust, heavy metals and non methane volatile organic compounds. In 2008, BASF Greater China produced 950 tons of air pollutants in production. Compared with 2007, the emission of pollutants decreased by 10%. Although the output increased in the same period, the company achieved a reduction in air pollutant emissions due to technological innovation

we are gradually reducing the consumption of water resources and recycling water resources as much as possible. In 2008, BASF Greater China used 12.9 million cubic meters of water (4.4% lower than 13.5 million cubic meters in 2007) - most of which was used for cooling

in 2008, BASF Greater China's total wastewater discharge was 7.3 million cubic meters (37% lower than the discharge of 11.5 million cubic meters in 2007), and fully met the requirements of local regulations and BASF's global standards

in 2008, 456 tons of organic substances were discharged into the water (42% lower than 787 tons in 2007). The total nitrogen discharged into the water is about 80 tons (11% lower than 90 tons in 2007). Last year, 1 ton of heavy metals were discharged into the water, a decrease of 83% over the previous year

CD and DVD discs are the most potential markets. In 2008, about 42000 tons of solid waste were generated in BASF Greater China (25% lower than 56300 tons in 2007). About 66% of them are used for recycling or heat recovery. Other solid wastes are treated by incineration (31%) or landfill (3%). The goal is to further reduce solid waste and increase the proportion of recycling

we strive to reduce the incidence of accidents and injuries worldwide. Our global goal is to reduce the rate of lost time industrial accidents per million working hours by 80% compared with the level in 2002 by 2020. In 2008, BASF Greater China lost time workers' lignin plastics were composite materials prepared by blending wood plastics with resins, plasticizers, inorganic fillers, compatibilizers, pigments and other components. The injury accident rate was 0.4 per million man hours, down 50% from 2007 (0.8 per million man hours). There were no fatal accidents caused by work in 2008
