PALO ALTO, Calif., Jan. 22. 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Varian Medical Systems (NYSE: VAR), world leader in radiotherapy equipment and software, has been honored for its commitment to sustainability with inclusion on a prestigious list of the world's most sustainable companies. Varian is the highest ranked healthcare equipment company among the Corporate Knights Global 100 Most Sustainable Corporations ranking, announced today during the World Economic Forum at Davos, Switzerland.

"We are proud to be recognized for our commitment to sustainability and this will spur us on to continually improve our efforts," says Dow Wilson, Varian's chief executive officer. "Our company's mission is to help save lives around the world and we seek to do this in ways which benefit the communities in which we operate."

To determine the final list, Corporate Knights analyzed over 4,600 companies against global industry peers using twelve quantitative key performance indicators. The full ranking is published in the annual Global 100 issue of Corporate Knights magazine as well as online at http://Global100.org.
