BASF becomes official Partner of Europe Regional Network

Monday 09th May 2016

BASF has today become an official Regional Partner of the WorldGBC’s Europe Regional Network.

The Network represents a community of 25 Green Building Councils (GBCs) and over 5,000 company members who cooperate closely to support growth of the sustainable building movement in Europe, including policy dialogue and support of sustainable construction activities.

Terri Wills, CEO of the World Green Building Council, said: "Our regional partners have been absolutely critical in strengthening the network of GBCs in Europe. As we grow stronger collectively, our ability to develop the green building market for the benefit of all our members grows too. BASF's support of the green building movement as a member of national GBCs has been evident for many years, and we are excited they are now taking a strategic leadership role as one of our partners at the regional level.”

Quentin de Hults, Manager Advocacy and Sustainability at BASF’s European Construction Competence Center, said: “With this cooperation we are strengthening our position within the construction industry as the partner for sustainable construction solutions. Sustainability plays a major role on all corporate levels of BASF and is an essential part of our ‘We create chemistry’ strategy.”

As a supplier of products, solutions and expertise, BASF is already engaged in several local GBCs, such as the German Sustainable Building Council (DGNB).

BASF not only supplies innovative sustainable construction solutions, it has also incorporated sustainability in its own guidelines for Corporate Real Estate Management. It commits to exceeding legal requirements for new construction by meeting the recognised green building rating tool standards, as promoted by the GBCs.
