BayWa’s roots are in Bavarian farming, but its interests are branching out. BayWa (pronounced bay-vah) is divided into several business units: agricultural (grain and oil fruit trading, fertilizers, insecticides, feed, seed, fresh fruit production), agricultural equipment (farm machinery, tools), building materials (building components and equipment), renewable energy products and services (wind, solar), and energy (gas stations, heating oil, lubricants, mineral oils). BayWa sold its do-it-yourself (DIY) and garden centers business in 2011. The company was founded as Bavarian Trading Co. in 1923, when it split from the Bavarian Savings & Loan.

ESG/Ethical Impact

This year, BayWa is celebrating its 100th anniversary. We are marking this occasion by looking back as well as ahead, from our roots as a collective to our present day as an internationally active group of companies that shapes the future of our world. BayWa fulfils people’s basic needs in the fields of energy, food, heating, housing and mobility and offers many pioneering solutions, ranging from wind turbines and solar panels to eco-friendly heating and mobility services as well as products for sustainable agriculture and energy-efficient construction. The history of BayWa shows that it is not necessarily a question of either/or – on the contrary, there is value in taking a variety of approaches. Our anniversary year bears the slogan “Where worlds meet”, which ties in well with the theme of sustainability. The year 2022 was marked by the war against Ukraine, the ongoing pandemic, disrupted supply chains and climate-based natural catastrophes such as drought and flooding. It showed how fragile our global nutrition system and energy supply are. Given these challenges, it is all the more important to ask how we are going to ensure the supply of food, both now and in the future. Solutions to boost climate resilience and environmental protection will play a critical role. BayWa offers an incredible variety of products for this – including corresponding seed products, digital farming solutions, dual utilisation of agricultural space with agrivoltaics (Agri-PV) and more. In the field of renewable energies, we are one of the leading players in the energy transition through BayWa r.e. We took a key step on the topic of climate protection during the reporting period and made a decision to implement an internal price on carbon, which went into effect in 2023. In doing so, we wish to expand our activities under our climate strategy and accelerate decarbonisation within the Group. We have also implemented measures in our supply chain in order to fulfil our human rights due diligence obligations. These measures range from Group-wide risk analysis to the expansion of complaint procedures. Sustainability also involves taking responsibility for our employees and providing them with an attractive working environment where they have room to grow. This has always been one of BayWa’s firm convictions. I wish to thank all employees who practise and drive sustainability at BayWa on a day-to-day basis for their commitment.
