As a responsible company, Bayer is actively committed to climate protection. For some years, we have been working through our climate program both to improve resource and energy efficiency and to find market solutions for protecting the climate and adapting to climate change.
By introducing this climate program, Bayer already reduced its specific emissions by around 18 percent between 2005 and the end of 2013. We have therefore achieved our ambitious medium-term targets. By implementing energy management systems and investing in energy efficiency measures we have also improved the Group’s energy efficiency by around 18 percent over the same period as planned.
Our ambitious target is to reduce Bayer-specific greenhouse gas emissions by 20 percent and improve energy efficiency by 10 percent from 2012 through 2020.
