Medtronic FY2015 Integrated Report Showcases Economic, Social and Environmental Performance

Medtronic’s FY2015 Integrated Performance Report, “Further, Together” provides a comprehensive view of how Medtronic creates value over time through responsible management of our financial resources, social investments, and environmental impacts.

Financial growth is no longer the sole measure of corporate success. Achieving competitive advantage in today’s global business environment requires strong performance and transparency across several key issues - including global access to care, patient safety, community investment, ethics, employee engagement, responsible sourcing, and environmental sustainability.

The goal of integrated reporting is to provide a more complete picture of how Medtronic creates value by identifying connections between the Company’s financial performance and our social and environmental initiatives which also contribute to sustainable growth.

Investors Seek Transparency and Sustainability Leadership

Medtronic uses the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) framework to determine the content of our Integrated Performance report.  GRI is the leading framework for corporate sustainability reporting based on input from a wide range of civil society organizations, labor groups, businesses, academics, and other experts.  Using this framework allows Medtronic to fulfill a global expectation around reporting and to have a high degree of transparency around our operations.

In addition to our sustainability reporting, Medtronic’s inclusion on the Dow Jones Sustainability North American Index for the eighth consecutive year, as well as our continued inclusion in the FTSE4Good Index Series, reflects the Company’s leadership in corporate sustainability.
