Danaher's 2018 Sustainability Report is now live. Since our first publication over five years ago, this report marks real progress in our pursuit of meaningful and measurable impact. Our Shared Purpose—Helping Realize Life's Potential—continues to inspire us as we work for the good of our associates, customers, investors, communities and planet. Following the spin-off of Fortive Corporation in 2016, we conducted a full sustainability materiality assessment, which included gathering input from dozens of stakeholders, benchmarking our progress against peers, prioritizing our focus areas, and developing a clear framework to guide our future efforts. This assessment identified the three pillars that now underpin our sustainability framework:
- INNOVATION: Innovation addresses the direct contributions we make each day to advancing health and safety at a global level.
- PEOPLE: People focuses on our most valuable resource for delivering these world-changing, often life-saving innovations—our people.
- ENVIRONMENT: Environment encompasses how we work to increase the use of sustainable materials and energy sources, and reduce our carbon footprint.
