Medtronic’s Commitment To Social Responsibility

We are proud to be a leader in promoting ethical business practices and have been recognized for our efforts by leading organizations.

We have a long-standing policy of conducting business ethically and in compliance with all applicable laws. We expect our employees, officers and directors to act in accordance with our core values of respect for people, integrity and excellence. We have established a comprehensive compliance program to ensure that our employees understand and comply with our ethical standards and applicable laws. Our compliance program includes training, monitoring and enforcement mechanisms designed to detect and prevent unethical or illegal conduct.

We are committed to being a responsible corporate citizen and have made significant contributions to the communities in which we operate. We believe that our social investments – in programs that improve the quality of life for people and communities around the world – are an important part of our business. We also believe that our environmental stewardship efforts – designed to help preserve our planet for future generations – are good business practices.

Through our social responsibility programs, we aim to make a positive impact in the communities where we live and work.

One of our key initiatives is our Medtronic Foundation, which works to improve access to healthcare for underserved populations around the world. The Foundation provides grants to support medical missions, educational programs, and disaster relief efforts. We also work with our employees to promote volunteerism and provide matching gifts to support their charitable giving.

In addition to our work with the Medtronic Foundation, we also have a number of other programs that focus on improving access to healthcare, strengthening communities, and protecting the environment. Here are just a few examples:

Our Access to Healthcare program provides financial assistance to low-income and uninsured patients in the US who need our life-saving medical devices.

Our Community Relations team partners with local organizations to improve the quality of life in the communities where we live and work. Recent projects include renovating a community center in Minneapolis and building homes for Habitat for Humanity in Atlanta.

Our Environmental Sustainability program is working to reduce our environmental impact and promote sustainable practices throughout our company. Recent initiatives include reducing our water usage, increasing our recycling rates, and using more renewable energy.

These are just a few examples of how Medtronic is working to make a positive impact in the world. We are committed to social responsibility and will continue to look for ways to give back to the communities where we live and work.
