She also covers a set of topics concerning ESG, why ESG is important for Bayer and the evolution of the industry and the business has reacted and embedded it in its sustainability strategy.

“By this, I mean how we fit with our goals around climate neutrality and our net zero targets,” Howell says. “I look into the work that we do with sustainable supply chains as well as the work that we spend a significant amount of time on diversity, equity and inclusion. 

“I'm talking about how this impacts our Bayer's business as it relates to benefits, determinants and considerations, and then specifically how Bayer's particularly leading this topic as it relates to transparency and engagement.”
