Varian Medical Systems Publishes 2012 Sustainability Report Outlining Environmental, Charitable, Safety and Health Access Achievements
Date:9/17/2012

PALO ALTO, Calif., Sept. 17, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Varian Medical Systems (NYSE: VAR), a world leader in radiotherapy and X-Ray imaging technology, is announcing the publication of its 2012 Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) report, detailing the company's policies and achievements in extending care, protecting resources and helping to save lives. The Varian Sustainability Report 2012 has been produced as part of a wider company investment to continually improve sustainability performance and transparency.

"In our inaugural report last year we made a commitment to produce annual updates so we could measure our achievements against defined sustainability goals," said Tim Guertin, president and chief executive officer of Varian Medical Systems. "Companies such as ours have a responsibility to achieve our business goals in a socially and environmentally responsible manner. While we continue to develop better therapeutic capabilities for fighting cancer and other diseases as well as better components for X-Ray imaging and for cargo screening, we continually strive to do so in ways which extend access to advanced care, improve clinical outcomes, optimize safety and make a positive impact on the communities where we operate."

Two years ago, Varian commenced a company-wide undertaking to examine sustainability performance and identify challenges and opportunities to be addressed over time. This effort involved the close participation of senior leaders from all divisions, key geographies, and core functions.

The report, based on internationally-recognized GRI (global reporting initiative) parameters, outlines the governance structure that determines Varian's sustainability activities and measures performance against goals stated in last year's report. The report's content is divided into four key areas: environmental, health access and outcomes, safety and responsibility, and colleagues and communities.

Varian's Sustainability Report 2012 is available to download at:  http://www.varian.com/us/corporate/corporate_citizenship/corporate_social_responsibility.html
