Since the late 1940s, Medtronic has developed medical technology to alleviate pain, restore health, and extend life. Working together with a global network of partners, our products, services, and solutions improve the health of millions of patients around the world. These positive impacts are amplified by being a good corporate citizen. 

As we continue to push the boundaries of medical technology to improve the health of patients around the world, it is imperative that we maintain and expand our reputation for excellence. Our commitment to working responsibly means strong collaboration across the health ecosystem, unwavering business ethics, corporate governance, and high-quality products with a focus on patient safety, data security and privacy measures. We extend these same ethical responsibility standards and expectations to our suppliers, contractors, and other partners for a responsible and diverse supply chain.
