The report focuses on the Company’s shared-value approach to sustainability, which focuses on the relationship among strong economic performance, social responsibility and respect for the environment.

"We are pleased to report on BD’s progress in achieving our sustainability goals, as well as how we are addressing the many challenges we face in the global business environment," said Vincent A. Forlenza, Chief Executive Officer and President. "We are broadening and redefining our approach to products, markets, services, productivity and even associate engagement, to drive higher shared value as well as higher shareholder value.”

This year, BD’s reporting aligns more closely with version 3.1 of the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) guidelines, and the Company has self-assessed the new report at GRI application level B. BD’s 2011 Sustainability Report highlights strategic priorities and performance in areas including:

Additionally, three BD locations received LEED Gold certification in 2011.

The Company develops and implements collaborative, cross-sector programs with governments, international agencies, nonprofit organizations and research institutions, focusing on areas that align societal needs with BD’s business strategy.

The report highlightsBD’s focus on health and safety in the workplace, providing learning and development opportunities, building a diverse workforce and creating an inclusive culture.

The new report also highlights the many awards and recognitions that BD received in 2011 in the areas of sustainability, innovation, employer of choice, and environment, health and safety, including:
