The need for more corporate responsibility has evolved for today’s corporations and the next generation of business leaders in the form of environmental, social and governance (ESG). Investors, activists, and regulators are now requiring proactive, community-structured commitment and accountability that is designed to step above shareholder returns. Today’s global capital markets aren’t interested in more marketing from companies in every industry. Instead, they are demanding sustainability and eco-friendly business practices as well as a reasonable return. Global healthcare companies and their executives are now hearing this call, and the industry is being more proactive in this movement. 

For the second year in a row, California-based Agilent Technologies – a leader in diagnostics and applied chemical markets – was ranked as one of Barron’s most sustainable companies.
