Medtronic Named One of America’s Most Just Companies by Just Capital and CNBC
The JUST 100 is the only ranking that recognizes companies doing right by all their stakeholders as defined by the American public
DUBLIN, January 10, 2023 /3BL Media/ - Medtronic plc (NYSE: MDT), a global leader in healthcare technology, has been named to the 2023 Rankings of America's Most JUST Companies by JUST Capital, along with media partner CNBC, for its commitment to serving its employees, customers, communities, the environment, and shareholders.
Notable contributions that resulted in Medtronic's overall ranking and outperformance against peers on the JUST 100 list include the company's focus on:
- Community and customers. Medtronic develops revolutionary solutions that put people first and partners with global health systems to accelerate patient access to care. By combining the power of healthcare technology with strong partnerships, Medtronic is working to help put health equity within reach, tackling some of the most challenging health disparities — from heart disease and cancer to diabetes.
- Putting employees first. Medtronic has taken strategic actions to move faster toward zero barriers to equity, including shifting to a leader-led model for inclusion, diversity and equity (ID&E), building stronger accountability across the organization, setting new five-year organization diversity representation goals, measuring beyond representation, and being more transparent publicly about progress.
- Environmental sustainability. In FY22, Medtronic announced a new ambition to be net zero across its value chain by FY45. In FY22, the company achieved 35% reduction in operational greenhouse gas emissions intensity compared to its FY20 baseline, toward its goal of 50% by FY25.
"For more than 60 years, the Medtronic Mission has guided our work and inspired our workforce to transform the lives of millions of people each year," said Geoff Martha, Medtronic chairman and chief executive officer. "Being recognized as a JUST 100 company demonstrates progress in our commitment to do right by our communities – from our employees, to healthcare providers, to the 76 million patients we support each year – as we strive to be the world's leading healthcare technology company."
