We pride ourselves on being transparent. Every year, we communicate our social, environmental, and financial impact and progress through our Integrated Performance Report. We organize the report to cover the topics most relevant to our Mission, our business, and our partners.
This report was prepared in accordance with the Global Reporting Initiative Standards Core guidelines — an internationally recognized framework for sustainability reporting. The content is also informed by the reporting requirements of the Sustainability Accounting Standards Board for Medical Equipment and Supplies, and the Dow Jones Sustainability Index. For more information, see our 2018 Standards Supplement.
