Halyard Health 2015 Corporate Citizenship Report

We are pleased to share Halyard’s 2015 Corporate Citizenship Report. The report, which follows the Global Reporting Initiative G4 guidelines (the leading authority on sustainability reporting and transparency), highlights how Halyard demonstrates social responsibility, both internally to our employees and externally to our customers and in our communities.

Building great products is only part of what we will do to make a difference. Achieving our
mission also means that we are good corporate citizens, carefully considering our impact on society and the environment while delivering on our commitments to our stockholders. How we do business is as important as the business we do, and we measure our success not only by the bottom line but also by how we meet the expectations of our many stakeholders.

In this report, we provide our stakeholders with information about our commitment to ethics and operating with integrity, employee well-being and safety, social responsibility of our supply chain, product safety, environmental stewardship, and fiscal responsibility.

We are proud of our 2015 accomplishments:

  • Executed the remaining elements of our spinoff from Kimberly-Clark with no material disruptions to our customers or our employees
  • Diverted 99.56% of our manufacturing waste from landfills
  • Continued to grow the BLUE RENEW*Sterilization Wrap Recycling Program—the largest recycling program of a single product used in the operating room—with an estimated four million pounds of HALYARD* Sterilization Wrap diverted for recycling annually
  • Reported zero fatalities in all of our facilities and had a reportable incident rate of 0.10 incidents per 100 employees

Our goals for 2016 include:

  • Invest in growth programs and aggressively expand our medical devices product portfolio
  • Continue to strengthen our product quality programs and improve customer experience
  • Achieve zero workplace fatalities and reportable incidents
  • Deliver shareholder value by generating strong cash flow
  • Strive to achieve 100% landfill-free operations across the globe
  • Execute initiatives to fuel growth, deliver operational efficiencies, and build our culture
