The circular economy is one of the great challenges for BASF, which places one of its priority focuses on innovation to meet the challenges of smart energy, food, mobility and urban life. BASF participates in the New Plastics Economy initiative of the Ellen McArthur Foundation, which has the collaboration of companies and professionals in the chemical sector to rethink and redesign the future of the plastics sector. In addition, the company is working with other participants to accelerate the transition to a circular economy for plastics and ensure the benefits it can bring.
On the consolidation of this initiative, Carles Navarro, General Manager of BASF Spain, commented that “At BASF we are firmly committed to the circular economy and sustainability. Even more so in extremely complex times such as those we are currently experiencing due to the coronavirus. “Every initiative aimed at promoting new circular business models, products and services that are beneficial to society and the environment will have an ally in BASF. Now more than ever it is important to create chemistry for a sustainable future.”
