Bayer is working continually on solutions that reduce environmental impact and conserve resources. We see the ecological challenges posed by the growing global population and advancing climate change as part of our corporate responsibility and at the same time as an opportunity to produce more cost-effectively and to develop new market opportunities.
Our commitment to environmental protection, health and safety goes well beyond the mere fulfillment of legal requirements. We also make this clear through our commitment to the chemical industry's Responsible Care initiative. The Bayer Sustainable Development Policy defines the framework of our ecological actions. We manage specific measures and projects using our QHSE (Quality, Health, Safety& Environmental Protection) management systems.
