Reports & Policies
Sustainability has been a priority since day 1. The progress documented in each sustainability report since our founding demonstrates our commitment to continuous improvement and increased rigor.
We completed our first GRI Index and submitted our first public CDP Climate Change disclosure in 2020. We added a SASB Index to our GRI Index in our 2021 Sustainability Report, and there’s more to come.
2021 Sustainability Report and GRI Index
As we reflect on 2020, we are acutely aware of how this last year tested all of us, as individuals and as a business. We also see that our strength and resilience as a business is made possible by our inclusive and diverse teams, reinforcing that we are more together.

Investing and innovating for a better world.
We’re proud that many Fortive products and services support sustainability directly by powering clean energy and critical infrastructure, reducing water and waste, and ensuring safe, sterile healthcare environments.
Advanced technologies help hospitals, healthcare facilities, and laboratories meet critical safety and quality-of-care standards. For example, Censis software tracks and monitors medical equipment to ensure instruments in the operating room are accounted for and safe to use.
Connected workflows and powerful analytics drive energy efficiency and ensure safe conditions in facilities management and construction. For example, the Fluke ii900 Sonic Industrial Imager pinpoints compressed air, gas, and vacuum leaks, helping customers reduce GHG emissions (and utility bills).
Specialized expertise ensures safety, precision, and reliability in a wide range of industries food and beverage to clean energy. For example, Anderson-Negele is supplying hygienic sensors to six major manufacturers in the global mass-production of COVID-19 vaccines.
