Long tradition of supporting science and education
Promotion out of conviction
Bayer has a long tradition of social commitment. In 1923, CEO Dr. Carl Duisberg established the first programs to promote science, education and social issues. Bayer has championed the common good on numerous levels ever since.
The company aims to improve the future prospects of people over the world.
In 2012, Bayer made available two percent of net income – or 49 million euros – for its social projects worldwide.
Focal points are in the areas of education and research, environment and nature, health and social needs, and sports and culture. Through these commitments the company aims to improve the future prospects of people the world over.
