Safety study summaries on glyphosate will be released by Bayer on Dec. 7, 2018, the first anniversary of the company’s Transparency Initiative.
“Our commitment to transparency remains core to our mission as we move forward as a combined company,” said Liam Condon, Member of the Board of Management of Bayer AG and President of the Crop Science Division. “We recognize that people around the world want more information around glyphosate – and we are eager to offer access to our glyphosate-related safety data on our dedicated transparency platform. This platform has set new standards of accountability and responsibility in the sector; we pledge to use it as a springboard to continue to share science-based information with the public.”
Bayer’s platform demonstrates how transparency around crop protection safety studies can help the company achieve its commitment to sound science and the safe use of its products, while at the same time maintaining confidential business information. This initiative has recently been recognized as “Best Public Outreach Program” at the 2018 Agrow Awards for delivering excellence in the communication of information on the benefits of agrochemical or agbiotech products.
