Annual Award Honors Medtronic as ‘Corporate Citizen’ Leader

Corporate Responsibility Magazine recognizes Medtronic on 100 Best Corporate Citizens List

Spend a few moments with Medtronic Chairman and CEO Omar Ishrak and one thing is clear – Medtronic is driven to make a difference.

“We’re committed to putting the full power of our technologies, resources, and our people to work with new partners, in new ways, to create a new era in healthcare,” says Ishrak.

That impact gained recognition in April after Corporate Responsibility Magazine listed Medtronic on its 18th annual 100 Best Corporate Citizens List for 2017

The honor awards companies for their commitment to the environment, climate change, employee relations, human rights, corporate governance, financial performance, philanthropy and community support.

The 100 Best Corporate Citizens list is based on publicly available information and ranks transparency, accountability, and business performance in those seven categories.

The company is also highly rated in several other corporate citizenship ratings including the Dow Jones Sustainability Index, FTSE4Good Index, and Ethibel.
