The proposed investment of the BASF Company in the Vigo County region appears to be a tremendous opportunity for the region in terms of providing a boost to the local economy as well as providing jobs. However, it also seems to be presenting some environmental drawbacks that could threaten the health of the community. There are various stakeholders in this regard with diverse objectives.
One is the stockholders of the BASF Company. These are the people behind the scenes who have invested their money in the company. This injection of funds has been provided for the sole purpose of maximizing the profit. Therefore it has a crucial bearing on the actions of the company. It will seek to get the best deal for itself so as to cut costs as much as possible. In this regard it may be hoping to process the toxic waste in as cost efficient a manner as possible, even if it comes at the cost of the local community.
