-- BD (Becton, Dickinson and Company) (NYSE: BDX), a leading global medical technology company, issued its 2017 Sustainability Performance Update that focuses on four key strategic areas that support the company's 2020 Sustainability Goals.

BD's sustainability strategy is driven by its purpose – advancing the world of health – and focuses on four priorities:

  • Innovation – health care safety, reach and cost
  • Access – health care in resource-limited populations
  • Efficiency – environmentally sound products and resilient operations
  • Empowerment – positive workforce and community impacts

Highlights from this year's progress report include:

  • Innovation – Through technology, processes, systems and partnerships, BD continues to pioneer new, relevant ways to impact the quality of care for both customers and health care systems, including redefining medication management technologies; identifying the tools needed to support disease diagnosis and treatment; as well as developing new technologies that provide more advanced "wearable" drug delivery devices and diabetes management applications.
  • Access – As a leader in areas that are critical to the future of medical technology and society as a whole, BD continues to expand health care access to vulnerable populations through partnerships with leading organizations and governments, including the U.S. Agency for International Development, The U.S. President's Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief, and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Additionally, the company has placed a strong focus on antimicrobial resistance (AMR). Through global mobilization, collaboration, education and training, BD is working towards infection prevention, diagnostics and surveillance solutions that strengthen health systems and combat AMR in both the developed and under-resourced areas of the world.
  • Efficiency – BD continues to take action and establish partnerships that address some of the world's most pressing environmental challenges, such as climate change and natural resource scarcity. Currently, 98 percent of BD's electric power used by operations in the U.S. and 66 percent of global electric power consumption is obtained from renewable resources.
  • Empowerment – As an organization that employs more than 65,000 associates across six continents, BD values an inclusive and diverse workforce that reflects the communities, customers and patients that it serves. The company has made strides towards its 2020 Sustainability Goals, particularly in the areas of diverse hiring, employee engagement and leadership development. Notably, this year, BD launched a Global Inclusion Council compromised of highly influential, next generation leaders to facilitate action, and drive change from within and across the company.
