Leading Responsibly 

Our Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG)
Performance and Progress

 

ESG Reporting at Medtronic

Every action we take has the potential to ripple far beyond our business. We work to integrate sustainability into all aspects of our business and prioritize the highest quality standards for a more transparent, ethical and resilient company.

We balance our long-term growth and profitability with our contributions to our workforce and partners, the environment, and global communities. Our work to provide equitable access to safe and reliable healthcare technology impacts the lives of two people every second. Our initiatives to increase inclusion, diversity and equity impact our employees and our communities. Our environmental stewardship impacts the future of our planet. We push ourselves to continually expand what it means to be a purpose-driven company, partnering and engaging openly with stakeholders and society for global good.

Putting in the Work

Since 2007, we’ve publicly reported our Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) performance and progress with clear, standardized metrics. We use globally recognized disclosure standards and guidelines, including the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI), Sustainability Accounting Standards Board (SASB) and the Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD).
