As a company, Bayer is a part of society and of public life. Ongoing and systematic dialogue with our stakeholders is therefore particularly important to us. Their expectations and viewpoints affect public acceptance of Bayer and thus our commercial success.
They enable us to recognize trends and developments in society and our markets at an early stage and provide input for the continuing development of our business activities, risk management and reporting. We take the wide-ranging requirements of our stakeholders seriously and consider them in our business operations. The open dialogue with them also enables us to build trust in our products and the social value of our services. We distinguish four main stakeholder groups with which we interact.
