Bayer Code of Conduct for Directors
The Company has been handed over by the various stakeholders in trust and the Board of Directors are the trustees of these stakeholders and owe a responsibility to ensure that the organisation is managed in a manner that protects and furthers the interest of our stakeholders.
At the core of Corporate Governance is the role of the Board of Directors in overseeing how management serves the long-term interests of shareowners and other stakeholders. An active, informed, independent and involved Board is essential for ensuring Bayer's integrity, transparency and long-term strength.
The Code of Conduct for Directors was approved and adopted by the Board at its meeting held on March 24, 2005 and amended on May 30, 2014.
