Chemical company BASF announces corporate partnership with SCI (Society of Chemical Industry)
Global innovation hub SCI has today launched a new corporate partnership agreement with leading chemical company BASF plc - the latest organisation to join SCI’s corporate partnership community.
Established in 1865 by Friedrich Engelhorn in Mannheim, Germany, BASF SE is a chemical producer supplying products and services to various sectors in almost every corner of the world. The company’s target is to grow faster than the market, providing answers to the most pressing challenges of our time – such as developing a sustainable product portfolio and sustainable water management.
Partnering with SCI will enable BASF to further accelerate its innovation drive to meet its business goals which include contributing to the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). BASF employees will be able to take advantage of SCI’s leading edge training and development programmes, conferences and publications (including SCI’s well established C&I magazine).
According to Thomas Birk, BASF VP for the UK and Ireland:
“This collaboration with SCI will help us to achieve our business aims. We fully appreciate SCI’s charitable aims of working to address today’s societal problems – this has real synergy with our own corporate goals.”
SCI Head of Innovation, David Bott said:
“We have long admired BASF’s sustainability vision and are pleased to welcome the company to our Corporate Partnership community. SCI is a society committed to helping ensure that science is used for good to solve some of the biggest challenges facing the world today – including climate change, resource efficiency, food poverty and global health. SCI's network is at the leading edge of new developments in these areas so we fully support BASF’s work.
“SCI runs leading edge conferences and events such as the 38th SCI Process Development Symposium in March and April’s ‘Agrifood Science in a time of climate change.’ Such events showcase the latest technologies and help our partners develop solutions to tackle today’s salient societal issues”.
