Contributing solutions to global challenges
Global requirements for sustainable development are very important to Bayer. The future of our areas of business is impacted by the societal consequences of tomorrow's megatrends.
To safeguard the existence of our company in the long term in the face of these global challenges, we are working on solutions for the future that drive forward sustainable development and our own business at the same time. In our three divisions: Pharmaceuticals Division, Consumer Health Division, and Crop Science Division– we possess a product portfolio that addresses some of the urgent problems affecting the provision of health care, the safeguarding of food supplies and the protection of the climate. Responsible business practices are our obligation: potential negative effects of our business activity on people and the environment must be limited.
