  • Hill identifies essential environmental and social governance issues at the company.

Commentary:

On this episode of The Energy Exchange, Host David Hidinger talked with Sarah Hill, Director of Sustainability at Becton Dickinson (BD), one of the largest global medical technology companies in the world and is advancing the world of health by improving medical discovery, diagnostics and the delivery of care. They talked about BD, the importance of ESG, and Hill’s career.

Before landing at BD, Hill worked for one of BD’s competitors as a Product Stewardship Manager and Sustainability manager, where she wore many hats and took on many roles. Her duties focused on product compliance, environmental legislation compliance for medical devices, and a small amount of sustainability strategy work. An opportunity opened up at BD, so she made the move.

“My role is Director of Sustainability, but I still wear a couple of different hats,” Hill said. “I haven’t moved completely away from the product stewardship work, so I still partner with colleagues on my time and the rest of the business on various stewardship issues.”

But, primarily, she focuses on sustainability disclosures, such as sustainability reporting, “an alphabet soup of frameworks we have to follow.” She also engages with stakeholders, such as investors, customers, suppliers, and associates. She is also in charge of setting up their sustainability strategy.

“Working with partners around the business to identify what are important environmental and social governance issues, figure out where we need to go in the next ten years, what’s important for our stakeholders, and get a strategy together,” Hill said.
