BD Values

Every day, BD works with physicians to create products that help fight disease. As a company and as individuals we are committed to supporting the work that organizations are doing to help those patients further. BD has supported organizations in Arizona such as the ones below.

In the wake of the pandemic there has been a significant reduction in cancer screenings, so this year, BD provided a $500,000 grant to the American Cancer Society to aid in getting people back to those lifesaving screenings.

BD has been named as one of the companies changing the world by Fortune magazine four separate times because of our commitment to pursuing efforts that help serve unmet health care needs across the world and has also been named to Corporate Reputation magazine’s list of the Top 100 Corporate Citizens for the past five years.

Regulatory Commitments and Compliance

BD maintains collaborative relationships with regulatory agencies, including EPA, FDA, OSHA, and state & local level environmental protection departments such as the Arizona Department of Environmental Quality and the Pima County Department of Environmental Quality.

Pandemic Response

Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, BD’s products have been essential for every stage of the response. BD produced the swabs, vials, and kits that were used to collect samples for testing and developed new technology that could quickly and accurately detect symptoms. BD’s products also made the delivery of vaccines possible by providing both the syringes and products to facilitate their safe disposal after administering shots.

BD is committed to pandemic preparedness solutions, and we are making significant investments such as this new facility in Tucson to improve supply chain resilience, customer service levels, and operational efficiency.
