Growing a Healthier World
It may seem a simple expression, but ‘Growing a Healthier World’ also gets to the heart of our commitment to sustainability at Bayer CropScience. This isn’t about business as usual. It’s about using science and innovation to uncover the most sustainable solutions for our customers, our employees and our world – solutions that will help ensure a lasting future for generations to come.
Sustainability is at the heart of our culture and informs how we conduct business every day, particularly in these three areas:
- Food, Health and Well Being – delivering world-class science and innovation that provide solutions to improve health and quality of life
- People and Partnerships – developing our people through education and training while fostering partnerships that advance sustainability throughout the communities where we live and work
- Together with Nature – reducing our own carbon footprint as well as that of our products, improving agricultural and urban landscape management and conserving habitats, and fostering environmental stewardship overall.
High-Quality Food for All
The challenge of the 21st century is to feed a continually growing world population in the face of dwindling resources, without negatively impacting climate change and biodiversity. We are convinced that we can only meet this challenge with agriculture based on the principles of sustainable development.
We have committed ourselves to make as substantial a contribution as possible to sustainable development and, as a result, are continually integrating sustainability principles into our business strategies. This applies to all organizational units along the value chain. In this way we generate value for our customers, our company and our employees.
