• Help for the Weak and
    Disadvantaged

Bayer's corporate social responsibility has traditionally involved assistance for those in need and efforts to improve social conditions in all the countries in which the company is active. Important tools of our social responsibility include donations and support for long-term projects according to the principle "helping people to help themselves." Here we cooperate closely with both government institutions and non-governmental organizations.

Promoting women's participation through vocational training

Increasing women’s participation in the productive sector is a major challenge within the rural areas of India. The strategy employed by the Bayer includes the identification of potential adolescent women between the age group of 15 to 19 years. They are then provided with training based on the market needs of the rural communities.
