Bayer drives forward global sustainability commitments - new report published
The Bayer Group has published its 2011 Sustainable Development Report with the online version available from www.sustainability2011.bayer.com
The Bayer Group is well on the way to implementing its comprehensive Sustainability Program. This is underlined by the company's new 68-page Sustainable Development Report, which contains countless facts and figures and is now available. "We are making good progress in all core areas – health, nutrition, and climate protection and resource efficiency," remarked Prof. Wolfgang Plischke, member of the Board of Management of Bayer AG responsible for Innovation, Technology and Sustainability. "We systematically strive to implement our qualitative and quantitative objectives on a step-by-step basis in the fields of innovation & product stewardship, ecology, employees, management & corporate governance and social commitment."
The review of 2011 documented in the report also shows that sustainability is an important part of the company's corporate strategy. "We do not see this as merely a trend. Sustainability is firmly embedded in our core business and, for us, essentially means future viability," said Plischke. He added that Bayer places particular emphasis on innovative strength and partnership models so as to operate successfully and sustainably. This is reflected year after year in the company's high research and development budget, which – at around EUR 3 billion in 2012 – is once again the highest in the German chemical and pharmaceutical industry. Plischke: "This commitment to innovation and sustainability is also at the heart of our mission: 'Bayer – Science For A Better Life.'"
