November 16, 2021

Boston Scientific has earned a spot on the 2021 Dow Jones Sustainability Index (DJSI) for North America, one of the most prestigious global benchmarks for corporate responsibility. The index measures companies based on their performance across a variety of sustainability criteria. Boston Scientific saw overall improvement in its 2021 S&P Global Corporate Sustainability Assessment, which is used to determine DJSI inclusion, and achieved strong performance in the areas of Health Outcome Contribution, Environmental Policy and Management Systems and Corporate Governance.

“At Boston Scientific, sustainable and inclusive business practices are central to our mission to transform lives through medical solutions that improve the health of patients around the world,” said Mike Mahoney, chairman and chief executive officer, Boston Scientific. “This applies to the way we operate as a global business and as a global corporate citizen, and the need for strong environmental, social and governance initiatives has never been greater. We are committed to doing our part to create a better future for our stakeholders and are honored to be included in the Dow Jones Sustainability Indices for the second consecutive year.”
