Baxter announces progress toward 2020 Goals in 2016 Corporate Responsibility Report

Wednesday, August 2, 2017

Baxter International has published its 2016 Corporate Responsibility Report, the 18th annual report that the company has released. 

Entitled ‘Making a Meaningful Difference’, the report details Baxter’s commitment to delivering environmental, social and economic value to the communities and constituencies the company serves, in support of its mission to “Save and Sustain Lives.”

Baxter was also recently recognized for the fourth consecutive year as one of the 50 most community-minded companies in the United States by Points of Light, the world’s largest organization dedicated to volunteer service. The Civic 50 provides a national standard for superior corporate citizenship and showcases how companies can use their time, skills and other resources to improve the quality of life in the communities where they do business.

“Our corporate responsibility priorities are tightly integrated with our strategic imperatives as a healthcare leader, adding greater dimension to how we bring our mission to life,” said Baxter Chairman and Chief Executive Officer José (Joe) E. Almeida. “Even as we transform as a business, we are tireless in our efforts to expand access to quality care, reduce our environmental footprint, advance STEM education, promote an inclusive workplace, and ultimately make a difference for the communities and constituencies we serve.”

The 2016 report, ‘Making a Meaningful Difference’, outlines the company’s corporate responsibility strategy and highlights progress toward Baxter’s 2020 corporate responsibility goals. Areas of focus include employee health and safety; community service; product innovation; access to care; operations; ethics and compliance; responsible procurement and logistics; and workplace culture.
