For the 10th year, Abbott was named the top performing company in its industry in S&P Global's Sustainability Yearbook 2023. The annual Sustainability Yearbook recognizes the world’s leading companies based on their sustainable business practices.
As the Health Care Equipment & Supplies industry leader with an S&P Global ESG Score of 81/100, Abbott's performance was among the top 1% of companies in the Sustainability Yearbook. This follows Abbott being named the top company in its industry on the 2022 Dow Jones Sustainability Index (DJSI) in December.
The selection of companies in The Sustainability Yearbook 2023 and the DJSI are both based on the S&P Global 2022 Corporate Sustainability Assessment (CSA), which provides ESG Scores for companies. As of December 16, 2022, over 7,800 companies assessed for the 2022 CSA were also considered for inclusion in the Sustainability Yearbook 2023.
