5 5 BASF Eco-efficiency analysis Strategic instrument to identify both costs (TCO) and environmental impact of products, process, systems Holistiv view of alternatives Life-cycle view Ecologic footprint

6 6 Climate change impact on BASF Risks Opportunities Regulatory Changes Financial burdens (i.e. by CO 2 levies, regulation, etc.) Shrinking markets Competitive advantage vis-à-vis local peers Growing markets GHG-intensive technologies Inefficient production method Efficient production processes Technologies to abate GHG emissions Climatic Changes Adaptable sites and production processes Technologies to adapt to climate change Endangered sites (including customer and supplier industries)

7 7 Energy Verbund: Energy generation: gas-fired combined heat and power plants: Highly efficient processes: E.g. continuous improvement of the catalyst system in the acrylic acid plant Primary energy: 1.5 mill. toe CO 2 emissions: 3.4 mill. t CO 2 Annual savings BASF Group: 1.0 mill. toe 2.2 mill. t CO 2 100,000 t CO 2 e Energy efficiency is key for GHG reduction

8 8 Energy balance at BASF Ludwigshafen 2008

9 9 9 Energy efficiency: Highly efficient power plants using natural gas Energy-efficient processes Logistics optimization Use of waste flows as raw material for other production processes Installation of proprietary N2O decomposition catalysts Important measures Kyoto +86% -27% -61% Production volumes GHG emissions per product volume Absolute GHG emissions * Index = *2009 BASF: Reduction of GHG Emissions

10 10 Reduce specific greenhouse gas emissions by 25% by 2020 compared with % Increase energy efficiency in production by 25% by 2020 compared with % BASF global climate and energy goals

11 11 3 : 13 : 1 Automobiles Housing Industry Agriculture Emissions for raw materials, production and disposal of all BASF products Total savings from product use over the life cycle Additional products Corporate Carbon Footprint 2008 Savings of CO 2 equivalents 2008 Emissions of CO 2 equivalents 2008 million t CO 2 e/a 287 Production of precursors Direct and indirect emissions from BASF production Disposal Transport and business trips

12 12 Solutions for future challenges Construction & Housing 60% of the world population will live in cities by 2030 Which materials are needed to make energy consumption more efficient? Energy & Climate 8 billion people will live on earth by 2030 How can we ensure food and water supply for everyone? 40% more primary energy will be needed in 2030 How can we contribute to climate protection and energy supply? Health & Nutrition Mobility & Communication 2 billion cars will drive on earth by 2030 How can we reduce emissions and fuel consumption ?

13 13 Ultramid ® for light-weight motor parts Terblend N ® and Terluran ® for high-quality plastic components Neopolen ® for absorption of collision energy Lumogen ® Black and Sicopal ® Black for heat reduction of dashboards UV cured coatings high environmental compatibility, rapid coating processes Astacin ® leather finishes environment-friendly Catalysts for purification of exhaust fumes and reduction of air pollutants BASFs sales 2009* to the automotive industry: 5 billion Sales of plastics to the automotive industry: approx. 1.4 billion Growth drivers Share of plastics in medium- sized cars expected to grow from todays ~15% to over 25% in 2020 driven by stricter regulatory requirements Global automotive market expected to grow by % p.a. mid-term Keropur ® Fuel additives help reduce fuel consumption Business case plastics *by first customer industry in 2009 Innovative system supplier to the automotive industry Solutions for more efficient cars Megatrend Mobility

14 14 Up to 50% weight reduction Every 100 kg weight reduction cuts fuel consumption by 0.4 l/100 km and CO 2 emissions by 1 kg/100 km Light-weight plastics Eco-efficient coatings Savings of primary energy: 15-20% in the production process Reduction of VOC and CO 2 emissions: 15-20% in the production process Capable of destroying over 90% of hydrocarbons, carbon monoxide and nitrogen oxides produced by gasoline engines Three-way-catalysts (TWC) Value for the environment: Solutions for more efficient cars Examples

18 18 Global cooperation: Sectoral activities (selection I) ICCA/IEA cooperation to jointly develop efficiency technology roadmaps Catalysis, with support from Dechema Bioenergy/feedstock and buildings ICCA global chemical industry carbon balance INTERNATIONAL COUNCIL OF CHEMICAL ASSOCIATIONS BAU2030 Abatement Gross savings ratio 2.6 : : : 1 Own emissions & gross savings (Gt CO2e) 2005

19 19 Global cooperation: Focus energy efficiency (selection II) Rudea: BASF supports energy efficient buildings project in Ekaterinburg Model homes in many other locations (EU, U.S., China, Korea, etc.) E.g. Sustainability customer center in Brazil Rome Casa 3 Litri Nottingham Building a Sustainable Future House Paris 5-Litre House: Batiment Génération E Ludwigshafen 3-Liter-Haus Ludwigshafen 1-Liter Haus

20 20... joint leadership by industrialized and emerging countries. A sole EU pioneer will not deliver.... strengthening industrial value chains for technology development and deployment. It is all about global action, stupid Global climate action is about... Annual global GHG Emissions 49 Gt CO 2 e 13,1 % 2,8% 8 % Waste Management Power Generation Industry Heating of Buildings Agriculture, Forestry & Deforestation 13 % 3% 26 % 19 % 31 % Transport

21 21 EU Policy implications Industrial technologies and activities are at the core of green business/ service models support EU industrial value chains (e.g. ETS: fair allocation, in particular for new capacities; fair taxes and RES levies, etc.) do not discriminate between old and new (green) industries Stable policy framework for investment Support Research & Development Macro-economic sound and cost efficient policies for internalization of external effects (e.g. proper balance between energy efficiency and RES)
