BASF Schwarzheide GmbH Vision
  • Chemical Industry
  • Dialogbild Light

BASF Schwarzheide GmbH is an industrial beacon in Lusatia and has been part of the BASF Group since 1990. More than 2,000 employees produce chemical specialties at the production site in southern Brandenburg. The product range includes polyurethane base products and systems, crop protection agents, water-based coatings, engineering plastics, foams, dispersions, laromers and, from 2022, battery materials. The site is growing and has set itself the goal of CO2-neutral production in the future and piloting the integration of renewable energies.



The new vision for the future of BASF Schwarzheide GmbH is based on four principles. They summarize what the company is striving for:

- We produce in a CO2-neutral manner.

- We inspire our customers, with future-proof products and services.

- We form the best team, with the most committed employees.

- We use our energy, speed and space for development.

These ambitious goals can only be achieved together, with all our employees. A dialog picture is used as a central instrument to initiate and accompany the change process. Based on this, the organization is aware of what makes the Schwarzheide site unique and is working on fully exploiting its potential and continuously developing further.


Products for future markets
We produce innovative products for future markets that are at the beginning of their product life cycle and build new value chains and networks at the site. In doing so, we focus on future-proof specialties and products that are ideally suited to our location.
CO2 neutral production
We contribute to achieving the climate targets of the BASF Group and continuously reduce the CO2 footprint of our production site up to CO2 neutrality. We produce in a CO2-neutral manner if no additional CO2 emissions are generated during the production and processing of our products in Schwarzheide due to the use of raw materials and media (steam, electricity, water, compressed air, etc.).
Flexibility and adaptability
We think and act agilely. We react quickly and flexibly to changing conditions and requirements - whether from inside or outside.
