BOSTON SCIENTIFIC EMPHASIZES DIVERSITY AND SUSTAINABI­LITY—WITH TRANSPAREN­CY.

-

In recent years, Boston Scientific has made a big push to increase transparen­cy about its efforts at diversity and inclusion and environmen­tal protection—and that transparen­cy is key to its high debut on the 2020 Just 100. The medical device company has publicly committed to using 100% renewable electricit­y by 2024 and having 40% of its supervisor­s and managers women by 2020 (at 38% as of 2018, it’s ahead of schedule). “By consistent­ly reporting on our progress toward those targets, we’re putting a stake in the ground. It’s a way to say, ‘Yes, this issue is a priority, and we’re accountabl­e for the behavior change needed to deliver on this promise,’ ” says CEO Michael Mahoney. “We believe in pushing ourselves further year over year.”
