Supplier Diversity

Our Commitment

As a world-class company competing successfully on a global scale, Bayer recognizes that our personnel and supply base should reflect the diversity of an ever-changing market place that knows no geographic boundaries.

Program Overview

Bayer has spent billions of dollars with small and diverse businesses since establishing our Supplier Diversity Program in 1995. Though it is not required to be formally certified to participate in our Supplier Diversity Program, it is strongly encouraged.

Bayer has been in active pursuit of advancing life since 1863. As a pioneer, we aim to develop revolutionary products and solutions, which contribute to finding solutions to the modern challenges of our time.

Our Supplier Diversity Program (SDP) allows us to tap into talented suppliers that have the potential to reduce supply chain risk and be more responsive, innovative and in tune with changing tastes and preferences of our country without sacrificing total cost of ownership. As one of the four D&I strategic imperatives at Bayer, our commitment to Supplier Diversity is only one of many ways in which we fulfill our mission by positively impacting the communities in which we serve.
