Our Corporate Responsibility Commitment and Report

Our Corporate Responsibility Commitment and Report

We’re motivated every day to positively impact the lives of others. Driven by our mission to save and sustain lives, we strive to create lasting value by empowering our patients, protecting our planet and championing our people and communities.

We are focused on tackling the environmental, social and governance topics that affect our patients, customers, employees, communities and other stakeholders. Our corporate responsibility work is bolstered by our approach to good governance and an overarching commitment to ethics and compliance, human rights, diversity, equity and inclusion and privacy and data protection. Grounded in three pillars—to Empower our Patients, Protect our Planet and Champion our People and Communities—our 2030 Corporate Responsibility Commitment features 10 goals for prioritized action.

Transparent Reporting

Transparent reporting is a longstanding focus for us, as we have a 30-year history of publishing environmental performance. In 1999, we were one of the first companies to pilot the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) Sustainability Reporting Guidelines. The GRI's reporting principles of comparability, accuracy, timeliness, clarity and reliability are fundamental in our approach. Every year, we measure and evaluate our performance, communicate progress and challenges, and identify opportunities to drive even greater impact within our Corporate Responsibility Report.
