Our company mission — to enable our customers to make the world healthier, cleaner and safer — not only defines our corporate responsibility efforts, but positions us to help meet some of societys most pressing challenges. As the global population surges, demand for widespread treatment and eradication of diseases, clean water and air, and access to safe and adequate food supplies will become paramount. To be sure, no company can meet these challenges alone; they will require collective effort on the part of industry, government and society. As the world leader in serving science, Thermo Fisher Scientific can make significant contributions. Our comprehensive portfolio of products and services, our continued investments in new technologies and capabilities, and our commitment to stewardship support our customers goals—and our own—for sustainable growth. Our corporate responsibility strategy rests on four pillars: Innovation, Operations, Service and Philanthropy. Our values — Integrity, Intensity, Innovation, Involvement — are the fabric of our corporate culture, decision-making and actions.
