3BL Media has once again named Abbott to its annual 100 Best Corporate Citizens ranking, which recognizes outstanding environmental, social and governance (ESG) transparency and performance among the 1,000 largest U.S. public companies. This is Abbott's 13th consecutive year on the list (2009-2021), demonstrating our longstanding commitment to sustainability. Abbott is one of only 19 companies that have made the ranking each year since 2009.
Looking ahead, we're working to deliver even greater impact for the people we serve. Through our 2030 Sustainability Plan, we're designing access and affordability into our life-changing technologies and products, and breaking down barriers that prevent people from getting the care they need. Our work will touch the lives of 2 billion people this year, and we intend to reach over 1 billion more in the next 10 years – improving the lives of one in every three people on the planet by 2030.
The 100 Best Corporate Citizens ranking is based on 146 ESG transparency and performance factors in eight pillars: climate change, employee relations, environment, finance, governance, human rights, stakeholders and society, and ESG performance. Using a methodology developed by 3BL Media, all Russell 1000 Index companies are researched by ISS ESG, the responsible investment research arm of Institutional Shareholder Services.
