This report features narratives from business leaders about how their companies are improving the quality of life around the world through sustainability efforts.

In today’s increasingly connected operations, information powers smart, safe and sustainable manufacturers through intelligent devices that self-analyze, perform predictive diagnostics and adapt to changes quickly. Seamless information sharing that spans people, processes and technologies across global and remote operations leads to better collaboration, faster problem-solving and increased productivity.

That is our vision for what we call The Connected Enterprise. With our innovation and expertise, we help our customers take advantage of emerging technologies to get the most value out of their operations.

Our technologies and solutions help customers run cleaner, safer and more energy-efficient processes, whether the goal is to bring life-saving medicines to market faster, make clean drinking water more available or improve the quality of your favorite products.

As important as it is to invest in the next breakthrough innovation, it is equally important to us to invest in developing our current and future workforce. For the future workforce, we contribute thousands of volunteer hours and millions of dollars to the success of FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology) and other STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) programs.

Our mission to improve the quality of life by making the world more productive and sustainable starts with us and the actions we take every day. Leading indices and organizations continued to recognize us in 2016 as a sustainability leader.
