Measurable benefits with BASF products:

Our products help achieve outstanding results in terms of energy efficiency, durability, resource conservation and environmental impact. In 2018, for example, BASF’s D105 office building was the first mixed-use building (new building for office/administration and training) in the state of Rhineland-Palatinate to be awarded the platinum standard by the German Sustainable Building Council (DGNB). BASF’s headquarters in North America was awarded the LEED double platinum certification.

Our MasterTop® flooring products can be used to gain credits in five categories in the LEED rating system: building reuse, construction waste management, recycled content, rapidly renewable materials, and low-emitting materials.
