BASF Value-to-Society vs. the BASF Common-Good-Balance
by Gerd Hofielen
Wolfgang Strengmann-Kuhn, member of the Bundestag for Bündnis90/Die Grünen, asked Saori Dubourg, member of the Board of Executive Directors of BASF, at a hearing in the Bundestag: „Would you prepare a public interest balance sheet for BASF?“.
After attempts to initiate a conversation failed to produce any results, the author embarked on his own initiative to create a Economy for the Common Good (ECG) balance sheet for BASF.
He was supported in his efforts by Michael Schnitzlein, who had examined the sustainability performance of companies listed in the C-DAX in his bachelor’s thesis.
