Agilent Corporate Citizenship Report 2013
A Message from Bill Sullivan, CEO, Agilent Technologies
I am pleased to present Agilent Technologies' 2013 Corporate Citizenship Report. This report demonstrates the commitment of our company, leaders and employees to the highest standards of social and environmental responsibility. Corporate citizenship has been a consistent value throughout Agilent's 75-year heritage as an industry leader.
This year's Corporate Citizenship and Responsibility Report provides details of our sustainability strategies and philanthropic efforts in 2013. I would particularly like to highlight the efforts we have made to ensure our social responsibility throughout Agilent's supply chain:
- As a reflection of today's global environment, we
have updated Agilent's Supplier Code of Conduct
to ensure compliance with Environmental, Health,
Safety and Social Responsibility guidelines
throughout our supply chain.
- Agilent suppliers are now accountable for
ensuring that all products, parts, components and
materials provided to us are “DRC (Democratic
Republic of Congo) conflict free,” in accordance
with the Dodd-Frank Act for Wall Street reform
and consumer protection.
- Our Supplier Code also reflects the latest requirements from the United Nations Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights.
Agilent's focus on sustainability continues throughout the lifecycle of our innovative products. As we move forward into next year, Agilent is committed to provide even more detailed and transparent data reporting on our corporate citizenship initiatives, as we will be using the GRI 4.0 framework in 2015.
At the end of 2014, Agilent plans to separate into two publicly traded, industry-leading companies. Agilent Technologies will focus on life sciences, diagnostics and applied markets, while Keysight Technologies will focus on electronic measurement. As part of Keysight's launch, we will ensure that the new company is all set to carry forward the rich history of Agilent's corporate social responsibility.
