|Definition of target
||Target attainment in 2014
||New target for 2015
||Explanations of target
|Evaluation of all strategically
66%. A total of 253
evaluated by the end
||Strategically important suppliers are those with a major
influence on business, including in terms of procurement
spend and long-term collaboration prospects (3-5 years).
Sustainability performance is evaluated in
assessments and audits.
|Evaluation of all potentially
high-risk suppliers with significant Bayer spend
61%. A total of 157
evaluated by the
end of 2014.
||Risk definition is based on a country- and material-based
approach. We define significant procurement spend as
> €1 million p.a.
|Development and establishment
of a new sustainability standard
for our supply base
||The sustainability standard for our suppliers is to be driven forward
in tandem with relevant industry initiatives. We are currently
working with the “Together for Sustainability” initiative
and the Pharmaceutical Supply Chain Initiative. The goals include
standardizing and sharing sustainability assessments and
audits of suppliers in the same industry and describing clear
expectations regarding sustainability so as to establish appropriate
sustainability practices among our suppliers.
|Improvement of 10% in Group-wide
energy efficiency. Reference
year 2012: 3.50 MWh/t
||Energy efficiency is defined as the quotient of energy
consumption in MWh per t manufactured sales volume.
|Reduction of 20% in Group-wide
specific greenhouse gas
emissions. Reference year 2012:
0.98 t CO2/t
||1.02 t CO2/t (+4.3%)
||Specific greenhouse gas emissions: measured in CO2 equivalents per t manufactured sales volume; special factor in
2014: inclusion for the first time of the energy-intensive site in
Maasvlakte in our environmental reporting. This exclusively
produces intermediates that according to our definition are not
included in the manufactured sales volume.
|Establishment of water
management at all sites in
water-scarce areas (35 sites)
||In the first stage, 80%
of the identified sites
were inspected to
is in place, and if so,
in what form.
||The definition of water management is based, among other
standards, on ISO 14001; identification of water-scarce areas
according to WBCSD Global WaterTool™. As part of our analysis,
we examined, for example, whether water-relevant strategies,
targets and initiatives and an appropriate risk management
system were already in place, for example. Based on this examination,
specific steps to improve water management at the
individual sites will be agreed beginning in 2015.
|Reduction of 35% in occupational
safety incident rate.
Reference year 2012: RIR 0.49
||RIR 0.43 (-12.1%)
||RIR (Recordable Incident Rate): number of reportable
occupational injuries affecting Bayer employees with and
without lost workdays per 200,000 working hours. Until the end
of 2015, we will continue reporting on our success in achieving
our LTRIR (Lost Time Recordable Incident Rate) target, which
covers only occupational injuries with lost workdays per
200,000 working hours. The 2015 target is an LTRIR of 0.21.
The level in 2014 was 0.22.
|Reduction of 30% in transport
incidents. Reference year 2012:
||Transport incidents relate to both our own chemical transport
movements and those we commission and pay third parties to
perform on our behalf.
|Reduction of 30% in process and
plant safety incidents. reference
year 2012: LoPC-IR 0.38
||LoPC-IR 0.23 (-38%)
||LoPC-IR (Loss of Primary Containment Incident Rate): number of
incidents in which chemicals leak from their primary container,
such as pipelines, pumps, tanks or drums, per 200,000 working
hours in areas relevant to plant safety.
|Conclusion of assessment
of hazard potential of all
substances (> 99%) used in
quantities exceeding one
metric ton per annum
||55%. Approx. 32,000
substances had been
assessed by the end of
||This globally harmonized Bayer standard also covers assessment
of such substances that are not subject to the REACH regulation
If no relevant datasets are generated within the scope of REACH,
substance information and the ability to provide data on key substance
properties are to be determined to ensure and document
responsible handling of the substances (including in terms of substance
characteristics, purity, intended use, toxicological data).
|Conducting of precautionary
risk assessments in all three
||Risk assessments are based on the integrated compliance management
method developed by Ernst & Young. Integrated Compliance
Management@Bayer (ICM@Bayer) preventively assesses
and addresses risks in the following compliance areas: fairness
in competition, integrity in business dealings, product-related
communication at BHC, BHC price reporting, insider trading,
foreign trade law, separation of corporate and private interests,
fair and respectful working conditions, and data protection.
|From 2015 annual compliance
training for all Bayer managerial
staff (> 99%)
||Managers will participate in specific training courses depending
on the risk area.
