Covidien - Corporate Social Responsibility Report
Although Covidien was launched only in June 2007, our commitment to protecting the environment and to being socially responsible is firmly rooted in our Company’s ethos. As a manufacturer of medical products and pharmaceuticals, we recognize that we have a responsibility to reduce our impact on the environment and to conserve natural resources. This is a fundamental, not a discretionary, consideration in our decision-making. Managing our impact on the environment and our energy use can reduce our operating costs and those of our customers. We also strive to improve the quality of life in the communities where we operate and where our employees and customers work and live. More broadly, we can help preserve the resources that people everywhere need to live longer, healthier lives.
Welcome to Covidien’s first Corporate Social Responsibility report.
