Supplier Code of Conduct

Setting Sustainability Standards

Bayer has developed a Supplier Code of Conduct which sets forth key social, ecological and ethical standards that the Bayer Group expects its suppliers and subcontractors to share.

Bayer supports the ten principles of the United Nations Global Compact (UNGC) on Human Rights, Labor, Environment, and Anti-Corruption as well as the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights (UNGPs) and the OECD Guidelines for Multinational Enterprises. This Bayer Supplier Code of Conduct is based on, amongst other international standards: the UNGC, the International Bill of Human Rights, the International Labor Organization’s (ILO) Declaration on Fundamental Principles and Rights at Work, the UNGPs, the Rio Declaration on Environment and Development, the UN Convention Against Corruption, the Convention on Biological Diversity, the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) as well as the Basel Convention on the Control of Transboundary Movements of Hazardous Wastes and their Disposal, the Stockholm Convention on persistent organic pollutants (POPs), and the Minamata Convention on Mercury.
