In 2009 Bayer developed a Sustainability Program. The program places special importance on alliances for sustainable health care, innovative partnerships to improve the supply of high-quality food.
Through alliances for sustainable health care, Bayer is actively involved where need exists and its own expertise is greatest. “We want people to share in medical progress, regardless of their income or where they live. Ensuring global medical care is not a task that any aid organization, government, company or research institute can tackle alone. Only a network of strong partners can make things happen,” states Professor Wolfgang Plischke, member of the Board of Management of Bayer AG and interim head of Bayer Healt Care.
