Waters' 2020 Sustainability Report Highlights Continued Progress of its Environmental, Social and Governance Initiatives

Waters Corporation (NYSE:WAT) today released its 2020 Sustainability Report, highlighting achievements and progress of the company's sustainable operations, projects and initiatives. Waters' latest sustainability report covers activities from 2019 and key highlights from 2020. In addition, the report tracks the important progress of Waters' 2025 sustainability goals set forth in late 2019.

"Our team is demonstrating that through our collective actions we can make meaningful impacts, even during the most challenging periods in our history," said Dr. Udit Batra, Waters President and CEO. "From investing in STEM education, to reimagining recyclable product packaging, to our COVID-19 Innovation Response Team, Waters is working to make the world safer and healthier for generations to come. I am looking forward to further championing Waters' sustainability efforts."

Waters' commitment to sustainability is derived from its focus on advancing scientific progress to enhance human health and well-being. Informed by the results of a comprehensive Materiality Assessment in 2018, Waters has since initiated multiple projects across five key areas where it can drive sustainability throughout its global operations. These formed Waters' 2025 sustainability goals and its commitment to report annual progress against them.

Waters has continued advancing efforts to reduce the environmental impact of its operations by pursuing targeted pollution prevention, waste reduction and conservation of natural resources. Progress in and communication of these efforts has generated notice, with Waters being recently named to "America's Most Responsible Companies" 2021 list as #3 in the Healthcare and Life Sciences category and #19 out of 400 companies overall.
