Baxter's environmental, health and safety (EHS) governance structure is designed to help the EHS organization realize its vision, achieve its goals and help create long-term business value for Baxter. This includes contributing to the company’s sustainability strategies, programs and performance.
EHS Organization and Reporting Structure
Baxter's EHS organization, made up of more than 250 full-time equivalent employees around the world, manages the company’s EHS compliance requirements and risks. The organization works with a diverse group of internal and external stakeholders to address emerging EHS issues and related business challenges. The EHS organization, including business group EHS support teams, has reported to global manufacturing since 2003. EHS Legal and Audit Services reports to the Ethics and Compliance function of Baxter’s Legal department to preserve the objectivity of legal advice and the global EHS auditing function.
Baxter's vice president of EHS meets at least once a year with the Public Policy Committee of the company's board of directors to provide EHS performance updates, report on progress in related sustainability initiatives and discuss emerging EHS and broader sustainability trends.
