Medtronic Citizenship -- Reporting

Medtronic Citizenship -- Reporting

Committed to Sustainability
We pride ourselves on being transparent. Every year, we communicate our social, environmental, and financial impact and progress through our Integrated Performance Report. 

In 2018 Medtronic continued to deliver on our commitment to sustainability, which is critical to our business performance. In FY18, our most material issues remained the same: access to care, product stewardship, ethics in sales and marketing, responsible supply management, and product quality. In our FY18 Integrated Performance Report, we outline our progress within the four pillars of our Citizenship framework: Adding Value to Society, Promoting Environmental Stewardship, Supporting a Global Workforce, and Working Responsibly.

Scope and Data
We organize the report to cover the topics most relevant to our Mission, our business, and our partners. Our integrated reports are prepared in accordance with the Global Reporting Initiative Standards Core guidelines — an internationally recognized framework for sustainability reporting. The content is also informed by the reporting requirements of the Sustainability Accounting Standards Board for Medical Equipment and Supplies, and the Dow Jones Sustainability Index.
