Environmental, Social
& Governance (ESG)

In line with our purpose to "enable life sciences companies to bring impactful breakthrough therapies to market faster," we take our responsibility to society seriously.


We are committed to taking action on the issues that matter most to our business and stakeholders. At Azenta, we approach ESG issues in a holistic manner, integrating socially responsible and sustainable practices into all aspects of our business.  Our focus on sustainability guides the way we do business, benefiting the environment and society on a global scale. We are committed to taking deliberate actions to address sustainability issues, both to support the well-being of future customers, colleagues, and communities and to strengthen our business for the long term.


Our approach to corporate social responsibility is centered around three key pillars that align with our business model, strategy, and values. Our focus on Environmental Protection, Social Impact, & Responsible Operations allows us to create long-term value by providing high-quality products for our customers, creating a fulfilling work environment for our colleagues, delivering solid returns for our shareholders, making a positive impact on our communities, and reducing our environmental footprint. By prioritizing these areas, we believe we can have the most significant impact. Above all, our commitment to being a responsible corporate citizen has been a hallmark of our Company and will continue to be critical to our continued success.

Environmental Protection

• As a global company, we understand the broad impact of our operations and the potential to impact the world. We are committed to evaluating ways to reduce our environmental footprint while continuing to expand our business.


• Our commitment to environmental protection extends to conducting our business in an environmentally responsible manner. We are making progress in this area by targeting the reduction of energy use in our facilities, developing more sustainable products, and supporting our customers in achieving their own environmental goals.


• In 2022, we introduced a centralized system to track our energy usage at all of our site locations, allowing us to establish a baseline of Scope 1 & 2 Greenhouse Gas (“GHG”) Emissions from our own operations.

Social Impact

• At Azenta, we are committed to making a positive impact on society, particularly in the regions where we are located and serve our customers. We are focused on creating an environment where our employees are supported through our inclusion and diversity initiatives, training and development programs, and equitable compensation practices. This positions us well to attract and retain high-quality talent. We also make meaningful contributions to our communities through community outreach, charitable giving, and employee volunteerism programs.


• To promote employee engagement, we hold regular employee events, conduct annual employee surveys to measure the engagement and other aspects of our corporate culture and offer health and well-being programs.


• We are guided by our five core values:

Put People First

Embrace Authenticity

Cultivate Openness

Focus on the Customer
