IMC Member Chat: Responsible Data Collection for Issue Management

Speaker: Matthias Berninger, Global Head of Public Affairs and Sustainability, Bayer AG 

Date/Time: January 8, 2020 at 11:30 am E.T.

When Bayer AG acquired Monsanto, the company had to address allegations from French media that Monsanto kept illegal (“secret”) files about activists who were against company products and practices.  Matthias Berninger, Global Head of Public Affairs and Sustainability, Bayer AG will share experiences and learning that are relevant for anyone who works at the interface of stakeholder research and relationships:

  • What were the facts leading up to the controversy and how did Bayer justify Monsanto’s research practices?
  • What were the findings of the court?
  • What types of information are especially sensitive?
  • What is the evolving notion of “best practice” regarding stakeholder analysis?

 In a broader view, Berninger will conclude with thoughts about how reputation affects issue management strategy before, during and after mergers and acquisitions.
