Baxter is honored to be named to the Dow Jones Sustainability Index for the 19th consecutive year; and I’m privileged to salute our 47,000 employees worldwide, whose embrace of sound corporate citizenship plays an integral role in our Mission to Save and Sustain lives.
Baxter's success is built on far more than a portfolio of market-leading, medically necessary products. It’s founded on our belief in doing business the right way: with a passion for increasing access to care; forward-thinking environmental practices; and a culture that’s channeling innovation and inclusion to create a greater impact for our stakeholders. These commitments are making an important difference that spans our worldwide community, from our own employees to the patients and physicians who rely on us, and everyone else touched by our work and presence. Today Baxter is transforming for a dynamic future, and our emphasis on corporate social responsibility will continue to fuel our strength, momentum and identity.
—Joe Almeida, Chairman and CEO
