Creating Sustainable Solutions: BASF Impact on the Personal Care Value Chain

Time: 12:15 - 12:45

Date: Wednesday 5th July


Responsible sourcing is a key element in our sustainability efforts along the personal care value chain – to protect ecosystems and enable sustainable management for those who depend on them. We drive initiatives to increase the share of renewable-based ingredients in our portfolio and take an active role in managing our supply chain carefully. BASF wants to ensure that its renewable-based products, as well as its bioactive ingredients, are made from sustainable sourced raw materials, such as responsible sourced Argan, Oil Palm, Coconut and Castor Oil. A reliable sustainable certification system to ensure verification on the ground, a maximum of transparency, as well as social measures for local communities, especially smallholders, are key steps towards protecting valuable ecosystems as well as human and labor rights.
