Sysmex Corporation (HQ: Kobe, Japan; President: Hisashi Ietsugu) has been selected as one of the 2012 Global 100’s Most Sustainable Companies in the World, a ranking based on joint research by Canadian publisher Corporate Knights, Bloomberg and other organizations.
The Global 100 is a list of the world’s 100 most sustainable companies. The top 100 are selected from among 3,500 companies around the world that are involved in a range of industries, judged by Corporate Knights, Bloomberg and other organizations on the basis of corporate value characteristics including environmental, social and corporate governance aspects.
This year’s Global 100 was announced during the World Economic Forum, held in Davos, Switzerland, on January 25, 2012. Sysmex ranked 77th overall and sixth in the Health Care sector.
In April 2010, the Sysmex Group established long-term environmental objectives to be achieved by the end of fiscal 2020, ending March 31, 2021. These long-term environmental objectives focus on such themes as global warming countermeasures, effective use of resources and waste reduction, and effective use of water resources, and the Company is working toward these goals on a daily basis.
Going forward, in addition to corporate growth and the reduction of its environmental impact, Sysmex aims to instill trust and confidence in its customers throughout the world by operating in accordance with the “Sysmex Way,” the philosophy of the Sysmex Group.
