Agilent Named to Barron’s 100 Most Sustainable Companies in 2019

SANTA CLARA, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Agilent Technologies Inc. (NYSE: A) today announced for the second year
in a row, Agilent has been ranked among Barron’s 100 Most Sustainable
Companies. The company garnered the No. 3 position, moving up 14 spots
from No. 17 the previous year.

Barron’s, in partnership with Calvert Research and Management, analyzed
the 1,000 largest publicly held companies by market value in the United
States. Each company was assessed against 300 performance indicators in
five categories: shareholders, employees, customers, planet and
community.

“It’s a tremendous honor for Agilent to receive this award as it’s a
reflection of our longstanding commitment to sustainability,” said
Agilent President and CEO Mike McMullen. “Our sustainability program
reflects our values and what we stand for as a company. It’s just the
right thing to do for our team, customers, community and business.”

As part of its ongoing corporate social responsibility initiatives,
Agilent:

  • Installed key energy and water-saving solutions in the U.S., Denmark,
    Germany, Italy, Singapore and China. These projects reduced annual
    electricity consumption by about 6 million MWh, which is the
    equivalent to a reduction of over 3,000 tons of carbon dioxide every
    year and helped us deliver a 9% reduction in our water consumption.
  • Commissioned lower carbon electricity generation systems at two of its
    large facilities in the U.S. These generating systems convert natural
    gas into electricity without combustion and will typically produce 25
    percent less carbon dioxide than that from grid electricity.
  • Developed products that use less energy and water and produce lower
    emissions. This includes Intuvo, a chromatography system that uses 50
    percent less electricity.
  • Matched employee contributions to 600 non-profits through the Agilent
    Technologies Foundation, established the Agilent Employee Assistance
    Fund to support employees impacted by a natural disaster, and enabled
    employees to contribute an estimated 50,000 hours to community and
    charitable organizations through an expansion of our program that
    allows employees to take off six days per year in paid time to
    volunteer.
