Bayer announced on March 24 that it continues to be listed in the two major sustainability indices FTSE4Good and ASPI.

The FTSE4Good index series is managed by the Financial Times and the London Stock Exchange. In order to be listed on this index a company must meet considerable demands in terms of environmental and climate protection, employee rights, anti-corruption practices, supplier management and sustainability reporting.

Bayer has been continuously listed in the FTSE4Good index series since it was established in 2001.

Bayer has also been listed right from the beginning in the Advanced Sustainable Performance Indices (ASPI) Eurozone. This, too, was set up in 2001 and comprises 120 sustainability leaders from the Dow Jones Euro Stoxx index. Criteria for inclusion in the ASPI include sustainable corporate governance, responsible relations with customers and suppliers, safety, health protection and social commitment.

The company has also had a presence on the Dow Jones Sustainability World Index (DJSI World), for 2010/11 for the twelfth consecutive period. It has been on this index since its establishment in 1999. Bayer stock has also once again been included in the Dow Jones Sustainability Europe Index (DJSI Europe) after a break of two years.

Listing in the DJSI World is based on a Corporate Sustainability Assessment by the well-known Swiss rating agency SAM (Sustainable Asset Management). SAM identifies the world's sustainability leaders on the basis of economic, ecological and social criteria. The analysts awarded Bayer good scores for risk management, climate strategy and environmental reporting.
