Online and off, there is ongoing discussion about glyphosate, the active ingredient in most Roundup? brand herbicides and other weed-control products. It makes sense: around the globe, people are looking for information to answer questions and understand conversations around this widely-used herbicide.
So, what is the Bayer point of view? We have a responsibility to farmers, consumers and the environment. That’s why, when it comes to managing our business, we are raising the bar in transparency, sustainability and engagement. As we strive to deliver the best new solutions for agriculture, we hold ourselves to the highest standards in our interactions with farmers, policy makers, media, NGOs and consumers who want to know more about glyphosate and our business.

At our core, we are committed to delivering better solutions for farmers and providing more choice for consumers to help them and our planet thrive. As part of our portfolio, glyphosate-based herbicides will continue to play a key role in helping agriculture meet pressing environmental and food security challenges as the global population grows by an expected two billion people through 2050.
We want to explain the benefits that science and innovation can deliver in agriculture while championing what’s important to people: safe, healthy and affordable food that is produced in an environmentally sustainable manner. Improving access to the science behind our products is a key part of our Transparency Initiative.
