Engaging for a better life
Right at the heart of Bayer’s societal engagement are people who work to sustainably improve the lives of their fellow citizens in the fields of education and science, health, nutrition, and social innovations.
In India, our Corporate Societal Engagement (CSE) focuses on four thematic areas: Empowering Women, Fostering Education, Fostering Rural Development and Preventive Health & Sanitation.
Using proven expertise and knowhow from years of treatment experience, Bayer and its partnering institutions are developing strategic projects to help the society.
Program for Primary Prevention of Sexual Violence (PPPSV)
Through this project, Bayer and its partnering institutions are trying to implement primary preventive measures, which protect women and children from sexual violence and it’s after effects.
This is a unique initiative that engages visually impaired women with their highly developed sensory skills to detect early signs of breast cancer.
As a research-based company, we depend heavily on recruiting well-trained scientists and on society’s acceptance of technology. As education is a vital factor in achieving sustainable prosperity, Bayer places tremendous emphasis on supporting education and research within its social environment. Here, we focus mainly on the fields of science, technology and medicine, as well as environmental protection.
We support local communities with innovative educational and social projects that are based on the principle of ‘helping people to help themselves’ in collaboration with government institutions and non-governmental organizations.
To provide targeted assistance to people who find themselves in situations of acute need as a result of natural disasters, Bayer pursues a dual strategy: the company provides immediate assistance following natural disasters – both through monetary and medical donations and through donations in kind to rebuild infrastructure.
