At Baxter, our mission of saving and sustaining lives is accompanied by a commitment to responsible operations. Through this commitment, the company minimizes its impact on the environment, incorporates ethics and compliance into everything it does, strives to be the best place to work, provides employees a safe workplace and resources to maintain and improve employee health and wellbeing. Additionally, Baxter focuses on managing a sustainable supply chain, increasing access to healthcare and serving our communities.
Baxter’s commitment to corporate responsibility spans nearly four decades. In 2007, the company established its executive-level Corporate Responsibility Council to accelerate the integration of best practices within the company and to contribute to addressing global sustainability issues. In 2015, the company performed its first comprehensive corporate responsibility assessment to sharpen its focus on priority issues for Baxter and its stakeholders. This renewed focus is reflected in the 2020 Priorities and Goals.
