Bayer 04 Leverkusen set up sustainability role

Bayer 04 Leverkusen are looking to bring activities together in the field of sustainability and, as a result, the club set up the relevant position on 1 September 2022. This will act as a coordination point in future for the club's activities in the areas of social and ecological responsibility as well as sustainable corporate management. Bayer 04 were able to recruit Matthias Adler from their own ranks as the expert in the job. In his new role, he will report to the communications director Holger Tromp.

"Bayer 04 have stood for many years as a responsible business entity," said Fernando Carro, Bayer 04 CEO. "In setting up this position, we not only want to actively support this commitment but also intensify, expand and develop it to be well-equipped for an issue of the future that is important to us all."
Matthias Adler studied social sciences (in Wuppertal, Barcelona and Düsseldorf) and he has also completed the DFL course on 'Sustainability managers in football management'. The 31-year-old has worked for Bayer 04 since 2015, most recently in the areas of organisational development and corporate culture as well as community affairs.
