Working to create value through innovation and growth
Bayer is a global enterprise with core competencies in the fields of health care, nutrition and high-tech materials. Our products and services are designed to benefit people and improve their quality of life. At the same time we want to create value through innovation, growth and high earning power.
We are firmly aligned to our mission statement “Bayer: Science For A Better Life” and continue to optimize our portfolio, concentrating our activities in three high-potential, efficient subgroups with largely independent operations: HealthCare, CropScience and MaterialScience. These provide us with access to major global growth markets and are supported by our service companies.
As an inventor company, we plan to continue setting trends in research-intensive areas. Innovation is the foundation for competitiveness and growth, and thus for our company’s success in the future.
Our knowledge and our products are helping to diagnose, alleviate or cure diseases, improving the quality and adequacy of the global food supply, and contributing significantly to an active, modern lifestyle. Our expertise and innovative capability also enable us to offer solutions for protecting the climate and addressing the consequences of climate change.
We are committed to the principles of sustainable development, and to our role as a socially and ethically responsible corporate citizen. For us, there is a clear link between technical and economic expertise and corporate social responsibility. This, in turn, we define as our responsibility to work for the benefit of humankind, become socially involved and make a lasting contribution to sustainable development. At Bayer, we regard economy, ecology and social commitment as objectives of equal rank.
We seek to retain society’s confidence through performance, flexibility and open communication as we work in pursuit of our overriding goals: to steadily create corporate value and generate high value-added for the benefit of our stockholders, our employees and the community in every country in which we operate.
