I am driven by seeing science have an impact in real life, which means getting treatments to the patients.
Jeanne Kehren
Member of Bayer Pharmaceutical Division Executive Committee, Senior Vice President Digital & Commercial Innovation, Pharmaceuticals Division of Bayer AG

The work I am doing is to identify and address systemic inefficiencies and reshape the way healthcare is delivered, experienced and monitored to improve patient outcomes. I aim to drive effective digital transformation within healthcare, with a focus on sustainability and access to ensure that the business has a positive impact on the lives of many.


Sustainability is the right thing to do. Making a profit is important as it makes our drive for health for all sustainable, as more and more investors and people are looking at sustainability before investing in a company. People are realizing that they need to invest in places that are going to help us all live in a better world for the long term, and for this reason sustainability is becoming a key part of our strategy and our way of moving forward.’’

Helping to achieve the Global Goals for Sustainable Development is central to our vision at Bayer."
