Global Corporate Responsibility

At Bayer, sustainability is an essential part of our business strategy. We believe that we can only achieve lasting commercial success if we balance economic growth with ecological and social responsibility.

Responsible business practices are the foundation of the Bayer Group’s sustainable alignment. Through this alignment we can identify and mitigate risks at an early stage in the areas of compliance (e.g. anti-corruption and responsible marketing), human resources policy, product stewardship, health, environmental protection and safety, and supplier management.

The focus of our sustainability strategy is to safeguard and boost the company’s success, through responsible business practices that reduce our business risks and create new business opportunities that enable us to generate economic, ecological and social benefit.

We are developing products now that will be of great social benefit in the future and are safe in both manufacture and application. This is the only way to generate sustainably profitable growth and secure our future business success. Sustainability does not play an isolated role at Bayer, but forms an integral part of our corporate strategy in the same way research or human resources do.
