Submitted by Merck KGaA, Darmstadt, Germany

DARMSTADT, Germany--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Oct. 26, 2005--Examples of corporate responsibility in action abound in the second edition of the Corporate Responsibility Report of Merck KGaA. Reports and information on relief measures for the victims of natural catastrophes, programs especially for children and adolescents in developing countries, global concepts for employee development, and new approaches in the recycling of liquid crystal displays are proof of the great importance Merck places on social, environmental and economic responsibility within its corporate culture.

With its new Corporate Responsibility Report, Merck provides food for thought on topics such as "leadership and values", "long-term company management" and "fairness and transparency". In addition, the 56-page report uses interviews, reports and numerous examples to present Merck's global commitment to supporting initiatives in health care and education, and offering products of the highest quality. The report also describes the latest social and environmental programs that exemplify corporate responsibility and are a core element of the corporate culture at Merck.
