Varian has been honored for its commitment to sustainability. The company was one of only two U.S. healthcare equipment companies to be included on the Corporate Knights Global 100 Most Sustainable Corporations list, which was announced earlier this year during the World Economic Forum at Davos, Switzerland.
"We are proud to be recognized once again for our commitment to sustainability and this will spur us on to continually improve our efforts," says Dow Wilson, Varian's chief executive officer. "Our company's mission is to help save lives around the world and we seek to do this in ways that benefit the communities in which we operate."
To determine the final list, Corporate Knights analyzed over 4,600 companies against global industry peers using twelve quantitative key performance indicators. The full ranking is published in the annual Global 100 issue of Corporate Knights magazine as well as online.
"The inclusion of Varian in the Global 100 ranking for the third year running is a reflection of its continuous dedication to sustainability," said Michael Yow, lead analyst at Corporate Knights. "Varian is clearly an industry leader in terms of sustainability performance and disclosure."
Varian operates globally, with significant production facilities in the United States, Europe and Asia. The company makes a yearly submission to the Carbon Disclosure Project and publishes an annual report measuring its performance against defined goals.
