A Message from Rainer Blair

Danaher Corporation continues to grow, evolving and innovating as a leading science and technology company to meet the diverse needs of our stakeholders – our associates, customers, suppliers, shareholders and communities. As we grow, one thing that will not change is our commitment to operating with the highest ethical standards.

This commitment is embodied in Our Shared Purpose and Core Values. Through teamwork, innovation and by listening to our customers, we can accomplish great things and make a positive difference around the world.

Our updated Code of Conduct sets forth the standards by which we conduct our operations. It covers a range of topics, from the use of corporate resources, to gifts and conflicts of interest, to data privacy. It addresses cybersecurity and conveys our view of a diverse workplace that is free of harassment and  welcoming to all associates. It applies to all associates and sets a clear expectation that our standards must be followed in all job-related activities, regardless of business pressures.

Danaher leaders have additional responsibilities: to lead by example, and  to help others understand and meet their ethics and compliance responsibilities.

Danaher is fortunate to have outstanding associates throughout our organization. We know we can count on each of you to use good judgment and, when in doubt, to ask for help.

Thank you for your continued hard work and dedication to Our Shared Purpose – Helping Realize Life’s Potential.

Rainer M. Blair 
President and Chief Executive Officer
Danaher Corporation
