Bayer is a world-class innovation company with a 150-year history. Our scientific successes are intended to help improve people’s lives. At the same time, our innovations form the basis for sustainable and profitable business activity and are the key to maintaining or achieving leadership positions in all of our markets.

Our products are helping to address some of today’s biggest challenges, including global population growth, an aging society and the need to make efficient – and, wherever possible, sustainable – use of natural resources.

Science For A Better Life

We are improving people’s quality of life by preventing, alleviating or curing diseases.
We are helping to provide an adequate supply of high-quality food, feed and renewable plant-based raw materials.
Our high-tech polymer materials are making significant contributions in areas such as energy and resource efficiency for mobility, construction and home living.

In line with our mission “Bayer: Science For A Better Life,” we aim to improve people’s quality of life.
For this endeavor, we focus on our core competency of developing and successfully commercializing innovative products and solutions based on scientific knowledge.

Entire Focus on Life Science Businesses

Bayer in future will focus entirely on the Life Science businesses – HealthCare and CropScience – and intends to float MaterialScience on the stock market as a separate company by mid-2016 at the latest.
This move is designed to give MaterialScience direct access to the capital market for the continued development of its business. MaterialScience will align its organizational and process structures and corporate culture with its own industrial environment and business model in order to become a leading polymers company.

Our Values

We are committed to operating sustainably and addressing our social and ethical responsibilities as a corporate citizen. Bayer’s values play a central role in our daily work and are intended to guide us in fulfilling our mission. These values are represented by the word LIFE: Leadership, Integrity, Flexibility, Efficiency.
