BASF CEO Dr. Martin Brudermuller received the ICIS CEO of the Year Award at the virtual ICIS Power Players Awards event. The ICIS CEO of the Year Award reportedly is unique in that the winner is selected by his or her peers – senior executives of the ICIS Top 40 Power Players listing – a global ranking of the leaders making the greatest positive impact on their companies and the chemicals industry, and published in ICIS Chemical Business.

"The 2021 ICIS Power Players Awards brings together the best and brightest from across the globe to celebrate leadership shaping our industry at such an important time, and recognize individual achievement at the highest level," says Dean Curtis, CEO of ICIS.

"I am proud that the BASF team is committed to reduce our carbon emissions quite fast and drastically. We can master these challenges as companies, but also as the chemical industry as a whole. And as leaders, we have the responsibility to make bold decisions and set the right path to a more sustainable future for all of us," says Brudermuller.

ICIS also announced the winners of two new awards – Saori Dubourg, member of the board of executive directors at BASF, for the ICIS Sustainability Leader Award and Conrad Keijzer, CEO of Clariant, for the ICIS Emerging Leader Award.
