Environmental Science: Healthy living spaces for long healthy lives
Life expectancy has never been greater. Although the statistics vary between countries, everyone is living longer. Nutrition and medicine count for a lot – but there’s another big factor: hygiene.
Knowing that lives are at stake, our Environmental Science division cares deeply about keeping living spaces clean, safe and healthy. For example, our indoor applications and impregnated nets give people a range of ways to stop insects bringing disease into their homes. With these measures, we save lives on a huge scale: insect-borne diseases like malaria and schistosomiasis infect hundreds of millions of people worldwide each year.
Pests: keep out
They might not be as lethal – but who wants mice, rats and cockroaches scurrying about their home or business? Not only are they repulsive to most of us, they clearly signal unhealthy living conditions.
We help people fight back here too. For instance, pest control companies are major customers of ours, relying on us to keep a whole range of environments – from restaurants to private homes – hygienic and pest-free. We offer them safe, effective chemicals so they can do their job thoroughly and well. And more and more, we’re combining chemistry with biology to create even more advanced and environmentally sustainable products.
Caring for green spaces
Another valued group of customers are home owners and gardeners – anyone who cares about the green space they’re responsible for. Bayer Garden and Bayer Advanced products help them create the landscape of their dreams, keeping it free of weeds, mildew and moss. Meanwhile our Turf and Ornamentals portfolio caters for the professional care of golf courses, sports fields and municipal parks, as well as nurseries and greenhouses, all the way to forestry applications. A diverse portfolio of products, all working hard for our varied community of customers…We’re proud of the role we play in keeping people’s environments hygienic and beautiful, without ever letting them down on safety and sustainability.
