Bayer supports the United Nations’ Universal Declaration of Human Rights and a number of globally recognized declarations for multinational enterprises1. We also fully endorse the principles of the United Nations Global Compact initiative. Promoting human rights standards internally and throughout all of Bayer’s business operations is in line with our company’s Values and Leadership Principles and our Sustainable Development Policy.
Bayer’s commitment to foster the implementation of human rights is supported through our Corporate Compliance Policy. It is in effect in all Bayer locations and it applies to Bayer’s business operations worldwide. We will use this position as a framework to guide our decision-making and constructive engagement within our sphere of influence, while the responsibility of the governments of the various countries for protection of human rights is respected.
