The Medtronic Mission calls us to improve human welfare, which includes caring for our planet. Making the world a healthier place means addressing our environmental effect holistically. We address environmental sustainability priorities such as greenhouse gas emissions, energy and water use, regulated and non-regulated waste, and more through policies and programs that set goals, measure progress, and demonstrably help protect our environment.
As a global citizen, we strive to develop products that minimize environmental impact across their lifecycle — from design, materials sourcing, and manufacturing, to product packaging, recycling, and disposal. We also continuously innovate operations to minimize our environmental footprint, setting goals and monitoring progress to reduce energy use, emissions, waste, and water use.LEARN MORE ABOUT OUR ENVIRONMENTAL STEWARDSHIP
