The company scored 7.57 on a scale of one to 10. Also receiving high marks were Dow Chemical (7.35), DuPont (6.98), PPG Industries (6.87) and Bayer (6.62).

In all, 10,000 executives, directors, and securities analysts rated the companies on eight attributes, and the average of those scores was used to compile the industry lists. FORTUNE also publishes a ranking of Global Most Admired Companies.
The eight attributes are 1) Innovation, 2) People Management, 3) Financial Soundness, 4) Quality of Management, 5) Use of Corporate Assets, 6) Social Responsibility, 7) Long-term Investment, and 8) Quality of Products and Services.
"We're pleased to have been recognized for our performance," said Klaus Peter Loebbe, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of BASF Corporation, BASF's North American affiliate. "Through our restructuring initiative, we have dramatically improved our financial results, and have over the course of the past several years made great strides in innovation, customer service and sustainable development."
