nability vision to reduce the environmental footprint of medication delivery.  We are also working to reduce the use of raw materials, increase the use of recycled materials in new products, and manufacture products in a more sustainable manner."

Based on results of a pilot program at Rady Children's Hospital-San Diego, BD believes that more than 70 percent of its overall sharps waste may ultimately be recovered and recycled rather than be permanently disposed of in landfills. This program builds upon BD's sustainability commitment, which has been recognized for achievements in environmental stewardship.  In Newsweek's 2010 "Green Rankings" of the 500 largest U.S. corporations, BD ranked 2nd in the Healthcare sector and 24th overall.  As part of its commitment to sustainability, BD's worldwide headquarters and three of the Company's U.S. manufacturing sites are offsetting 100 percent of their electricity use with renewable energy through green power purchases and renewable energy credits.  To learn more about BD's commitment to environmental stewardship, visit www.bd.com/sustainability.

This agreement with BD complements Waste Management's comprehensive waste services in the areas of recycling, landfill, waste-to-energy and consulting services.
