Political Principles

Energy policy & environmental protection

At Bayer, we recognize the scientific evidence indicating that man-made climate change is a fact. We also recognize the chemical industries’ responsibility as a major greenhouse-gas emitter. Bayer therefore strives to reduce its own emissions according to stringent reduction targets. More importantly, we believe that innovative products made by Bayer – such as materials for thermal insulation – can make a significant contribution to countering climate change.

Energy policy nowadays follows the need for environmental protection, e.g. in emission-trading schemes. We believe it is important that Europe retains energy prices that are comparable to other regions to maintain the overall competitiveness of the chemical industry.
