Our Commitment to Sustainability

For Bayer, sustainability means shaping the future successfully and, as part of our corporate strategy, is an integral part of our day-to-day work routines. We are convinced that we can only achieve lasting commercial success if through our innovations we increase our contribution to overcoming global challenges in the fields of food security and health, meet our responsibility to the environment, and on the basis of this also ultimately promote our economic growth. That's what our mission “Bayer: Science For A Better Life” is all about.
