Bayer Initiatives Focus on Sustainability

Carrie Muehling

Bayer is focused on sustainability with three specific commitments to bring about positive changes within the agriculture industry over the next 10 years.

“Bayer has the opportunity and the responsibility to really be part of the solution when we think about the major challenges that are facing ag today, and those might include climate change, growing population and limited resources,” said Becky Langer, Biodiversity Stakeholder Affairs. “So we have made, as a company, three bold transformational commitments that we will work to achieve by the year 2030.”

Those commitments include reducing greenhouse gases by 30 percent, reducing the impact of crop protection by 30 percent, and empowering 100 million small holders in developing countries with the access, knowledge and technologies to allow them to sustainably grow crops.

Langer was at the 2020 Commodity Classic in San Antonio.

  2. The only thing Bayer wants to sustain is its revenue stream at the expense of the environment and the human race. Its ecocidal products are aggressive agents of the exact opposite of sustainability. Stop the greenwashing Bayer. We are not fooled. If you are sincere and authentic about sustainability, take off the market the toxins you bought from Monsanto.
