BASF’s Community Advisory Panel in Chattanooga includes individuals representing neighbors, educators, customers, health care providers, professional associations, public and emergency services specialists and elected officials of the community. The CAP meets twice annually in an open-forum style to share information about BASF’s operations and environmental, health and safety performance, while also discussing current issues affecting the company and community at large.

During the CAP meetings, members are encouraged to ask questions about BASF operations and to share information about their organization, enhancing and encouraging open communications between BASF and the community.

During the meeting in June, EPB recognized BASF’s sites in Chattanooga as being the leading purchaser of renewable energy through the TVA Green Power Switch Southeastern Renewable Energy Credit program.
