I’ve visited dozens of facilities and spoken to thousands of employees over nearly four years at Baxter, and just about every encounter reveals new depth and dimension to our commitment to corporate responsibility. It’s a natural outcome of our Mission to Save and Sustain Lives. That’s why it means so much to be included in the Dow Jones Sustainability World Index for 20 straight years.
I see our commitment come to life in our efforts to expand healthcare access in underserved communities…our focus on groundbreaking innovation…our product design and packaging decisions…and our dedication to using energy, water and raw materials efficiently across our operations. It’s there in a culture that’s growing stronger through inclusion and diversity, and the hard work now underway that’s transforming Baxter to make an even greater impact for our stakeholders in years to come.
A Mission like ours makes sustainability an imperative, and we’re certain this focus fuels our success. It reflects the passion of 50,000 employees worldwide who join together each day to make a difference for patients, their caregivers and our broad stakeholder base.
