Beckman Coulter Foundation

Corporate Social Responsibility

Many companies talk about changing the world, but at Danaher we live it every day.

Corporate Social Responsibility is deeply ingrained in Danaher's culture and work, and has been for decades.

At a global level, our innovation improves quality of life in a meaningful way. Our businesses advance lifesaving research, improve health and safety, and promote environmental stewardship by reducing packaging waste, protecting our water supply and defending fragile ecosystems.

At a community level, Danaher teams take an active role in causes close to their hearts. Pall associates “brave the shave” to help fund lifesaving childhood cancer research through St. Baldrick’s Foundation. Beckman Coulter extends its contributions to global health by partnering with the National Multiple Sclerosis Society. And Videojet promotes heart-healthy living through the American Heart Association.

“Danaher embraces corporate social responsibility as it does any other challenge: by setting clear and measurable objectives, by being candid about our progress and by ensuring meaningful ownership at the leadership level.”  Brian Ellis, Senior Vice President and General Counsel

At a corporate level, our commitment takes the form of doing business with unfailing honesty and integrity. We invest in the growth and development of our people, with meaningful action towards a culture of Diversity and Inclusion. We ensure safe working conditions through our Environment, Health & Safety programs, continuously improved by the Danaher Business System. We extend our impact by supporting a range of science and technology education, healthcare research and disaster relief causes that align with our efforts to improve quality of life worldwide.
