Supplier Code of Conduct

Setting Sustainability Standards

Bayer has developed a Supplier Code of Conduct which sets forth key social, ecological and ethical standards that the Bayer Group expects its suppliers and subcontractors to share.

 

The Supplier Code of Conduct is based on the principles of the U.N. Global Compact and our Human Rights Position. Our human rights policy for procurement places particular value on the prevention of child labor, a practice that we categorically reject. We have launched a program specifically to deal with this issue.
