An outline of how we operate to harness our fullest potential

Making the right decisions, responsibly

How we conduct our business is just as important as the business we conduct. At Bayer, we honor our long-standing commitment to pursuing sustainable solutions while adhering to the German Corporate Governance Code. These regulations are important in ensuring we steward our internal operations responsibly, but also help us successfully pursue Health for all, Hunger for none —and the ongoing value it creates for everyone.


Maintaining Checks and Balances

We operate on the principle that our business success should always be in service of the world’s shared interests, from protecting the environment to improving the quality of life for everyone.


Bayer AG – headquartered in Leverkusen, Germany – is in compliance with recommendations of the German Corporate Governance Code which presents essential statutory regulations for the management and supervision of German listed companies and contains, in the form of recommendations and suggestions, internationally and nationally acknowledged standards for good and responsible corporate governance. That includes a complimentary, two-tier governance system, under which the Board of Management and Supervisory Board each oversee their own fields of responsibility. The Board of Management and the Supervisory Board of Bayer AG are committed to a responsible and transparent style of management and supervision aimed at increasing the company’s value over the long term.
