The Bayer Young Environmental Envoy Program was launched in Indonesia on April 2004, following the success of the program in the region. It is organized in association with the Institute of Technology Bandung (a prestigious Indonesia university) and KEHATI (a leading not-for-profit organization that focuses on bio-diversity in Indonesia).
To train youth leaders in exploring solutions to environmental problems
To facilitate networking and the exchange of environmental views among the youth in both host and participating countries
To provide an opportunity for the observation of environmentally sound technologies, practices and ways of life
Bayer has a well-established tradition of environmental protection, which began more than 100 years ago when it set up its Wastewater Commission at its production plants at Leverkusen, Germany. As a leader in the life science and chemical industries today, Bayer has designed an exciting program for students to help them understand the role that industry plays in environmental protection.
