More about Corporate Governance at Bayer


Bayer AG – headquartered in Leverkusen, Germany – is subject to the German legislation on which the Corporate Governance Code is based. That includes the two-tier governance system, under which the Board of Management and Supervisory Board each have their own fields of responsibility. This contrasts with the Anglo-American system, where corporate management and oversight are the tasks of a single executive body, the board of directors.
