Working on behalf of a better life
Bayer maintains business activities in about 150 countries. The company sees itself as a good corporate citizen in every country in which it is present, and as such aims to help solve social problems and overcome global challenges. We provide funding and make available our economic and technological know-how, while our employees for their part display tremendous commitment. Such social activities have been a key element of Bayer's corporate policy for more than a century, and play an essential role in the company's success.
With all our initiatives, we strive to improve people's future perspectives. For example, we support both schoolchildren and talented scientists. We assist young environmentalists around the world and aim to ease social hardship and safeguard health care in less affluent countries too. We also promote sports and culture as important and meaningful leisure pursuits that help bring people together.
Education and Research
We promote the most valuable resource: knowledge.
Bayer's achievements as an inventor company with a long tradition are based on progress in science and research. We focus not only on our own research activities, but also on promoting and strengthening education and research in general. Through various initiatives, Bayer systematically supports the training of young people, the development of scientific talent and innovative approaches to research.
Health and Social Needs
Bayer's corporate social responsibility has traditionally involved assistance for those in need and efforts to improve social conditions in all the countries in which the company is active. Important tools of our social responsibility include donations and support for long-term projects according to the principle "helping people to help themselves." Here we cooperate closely with both government institutions and non-governmental organisations.
