FRANKLIN LAKES, N.J., March 11 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- BD (Becton, Dickinson and Company) (NYSE: BDX), a leading global medical technology company, today announced that it has been named to the annual 100 Best Corporate Citizens List by CRO (Corporate Responsibility Officer) Magazine for 2009.

"BD takes seriously our duty to be a good corporate citizen in our communities and the world," said BD Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Edward J. Ludwig. "At BD, we pursue our corporate purpose of 'Helping all people live healthy lives' while balancing the 'triple bottom line' of strong economic performance, environmental stewardship and social responsibility. To be included in the CRO listing is a testament to the dedication of BD associates around the world to our Company's values."

Based solely on publicly-available data, the 2009 100 Best Corporate Citizens List methodology puts a premium on companies with high levels of public disclosure and transparency. This list has gained national recognition as an indicator of best practices in the area of corporate social responsibility.

CRO Magazine publisher Jay Whitehead said, "In good times, checkbook citizenship can win the day. But in tough times, strong reputations and transparency pack as much punch as a strong balance sheet. In today's deep recession, human capital and financial capital seek safety--and companies on the 100 Best Corporate Citizens List are today's safest harbors."
