Our Sustainable Development Report describes the economic, ecological and social challenges and opportunities that are linked to our operations and shows the strategies and solutions that we are applying to meet them.
Credible reporting is based on transparency and valid data. We register the data of all relevant organizational units and companies worldwide that fall within the scope of the Bayer Group’s consolidated financial statements. For all indicators with the exception of greenhouse gas emissions, the years 2008 to 2012 are shown as continuing operations.
All HSE (health, safety and environmental protection) performance indicators for the Group are recorded in Baysis, our Group-wide, site-based information system. The data undergo plausibility checks and cross-checks to ensure a high level of data integrity. The HSE data cover all companies in which we have a holding of at least 50 percent. The performance indicators of these companies are fully consolidated regardless of Bayer’s share in them.
More information about the reporting principles can be found in the Sustainability Report.
