We assess the possible health and environmental risks of a product along the entire value chain. This starts with research and development and continues through production, marketing and use by the customer through to disposal. We don't just focus on the safe handling and use of our products, but also on transparent communication and transfer of product safety information.
Product Stewardship at Bayer involves both compliance with statutory requirements and voluntary commitment. Here, we also take into account the precautionary principle as explained by the United Nations and the European Commission. Bayer supports the voluntary Responsible Care initiative of the chemical industry, which was globalized in 2006 with the introduction of the Responsible Care Global Charter. We cover all main elements of the charter with our QHSE (Quality, Health, Safety& Environmental Protection) management systems and activities. We are also actively involved in the further development of scientific risk assessment through associations and initiatives.
Bayer Vapi accords topmost priority to the sustainable production of environmentally safe products, safety of employees as well as the neighboring communities.
