Bayer is an innovation company with a more than 150-year history and core competencies in the areas of health care and agriculture. We develop new molecules for use in innovative products and solutions to improve the health of humans, animals and plants. In 2015, Bayer posted sales of EUR 46.3 billion with 116,800 employees (operating with its Group companies in 77 countries).
For Bayer, sustainability fundamentally means future viability and, as part of the 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 we balance economic growth with ecological and social responsibility. Responsibility for steering and aligning our Group-wide sustainability strategy lies with the Group Board of Management member responsible for Human Resources, Technology and Sustainability in his function as Chief Sustainability Officer, and with a Sustainability Council chaired by the Head of Sustainability & Business Stewardship (W. Grosse Entrup).
