Corporate Responsibility

“We believe that our mission to save and sustain lives is our ultimate statement of corporate responsibility. The global impact of our products, presence and activities will always be assessed through this lens, as we touch the lives of patients, clinicians, communities, employees and other constituencies worldwide." Joe Almeida, Chairman and CEO

For more than 85 years, Baxter has been making a meaningful difference for patients and creating lasting social, environmental and economic value in the communities we serve. Our employees are passionate about our mission, which is reflected in our portfolio of life-saving and sustaining products, our emphasis on environmental stewardship, our commitment to innovation and our uncompromising dedication to responsible business practices.

Our Commitment

Baxter is committed to treating all people in a way that allows them to maintain their dignity and independence.  We are committed to meeting the needs of persons with disabilities in a timely manner by preventing and removing barriers to accessibility and meeting accessibility requirements under the Accessibility for Ontarians Disability Act.

We have a multi-year accessibility plan outlining our strategy to prevent and remove barriers from the workplace and to improve opportunities for persons with disabilities.  Upon request, Baxter will provide a copy of the Accessibility Plan in an accessible format.
