Bayer included in major sustainability indices

March 28/2011

(Bayer) -- Bayer continues to be listed in the two major sustainability indices FTSE4Good and ASPI. This is the outcome of the reviews conducted by both index providers of the sustainability performance of major companies. The indices aid decision-making by institutional investors who place importance on social and ecological criteria as well as economic aspects.

The FTSE4Good index series is managed by the Financial Times and the London Stock Exchange. To be listed, companies must meet considerable demands in terms of environmental and climate protection, employee rights, anti-corruption practices, supplier management and sustainability reporting. The evaluation is made by the London-based rating agency Ethical Investment Research Services (EIRIS). 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 French rating agency Vigeo and the index specialist Stoxx Limited are responsible for analyzing the respective companies sustainability performance.
