Agilent Corporate Citizenship Report 2014
A Message from Mike McMullen, CEO Agilent Technologies
As a company newly focused on life sciences, diagnostics and applied chemical markets, Agilent Technologies is helping customers tackle some of the biggest challenges of our generation. Countries and communities around the world want to have safer water to drink, food to eat and air to breathe. They want to improve how they detect and treat disease. They want to develop new sources of energy to power their economies. Overall, they want to increase the standards of living available to their people.
Agilent is proud to offer innovative technologies and solutions that help our customers in these and other important areas that are key to social responsibility and environmental sustainability.
In addition, Agilent is committed to conducting its own business with unfailing ethics, integrity and accountability. The Agilent Technologies' 2014 Corporate Citizenship Report demonstrates the commitment of our company, our leaders and our employees to the highest standards of social and environmental responsibility.
This year's report is aligned with the latest guidelines of the Global Reporting Initiative framework, providing greater transparency to Agilent's performance. I would like to highlight just a few of our accomplishments over the past year:
- In fiscal year 2014, Agilent initiated a verification process to ensure social responsibility and environmental compliance throughout our supply chain.
- Agilent continually updates its Supplier Code of Conduct policy to ensure alignment with supply chain regulations. In fiscal year 2014, we initiated an annual communication of this Supplier Code of Conduct Policy to new and existing suppliers.
- Agilent was named to the 2014 Global 100 List. This ranking is regarded as the most transparent, quantitatively driven corporate sustainability assessment in the world. Agilent was the only Life Sciences Tools and Service Sector company to appear in the Global 100 List.
- Agilent was also included in this year's RobecoSAM Sustainability Yearbook as a top industry leader.
Corporate citizenship has been a foundation of Agilent's 75-year heritage as an industry leader, and will continue to be a consistent value as we begin the next phase of our corporate journey.
