Medical device research and development is responsible for substantive gains in length and quality of life, perhaps most profoundly by expanding the scope of illnesses that can be detected in a more timely or less invasive fashion. Agilent Technologies, Inc. is a net-positive Humankind Value company. This outcome is largely driven by Medical Devices ($23.9 B), Economic Value ($1.6 B), and Medical Services ($295.7 M). Positive value from Medical Devices and Medical Services is linked to an estimate of 502,693.0 additional years lived by people worldwide. It produces economic value by offering to consumers goods and services that they value, paying employees for their labor in producing these goods and services, and providing value for shareholders. The company’s negative impact is associated with Greenhouse Gases (-$210.9 M). Medical Devices and Economic Value are attached to this company as a result of its direct business activities, while Medical Services and Greenhouse Gases are largely consequences of the actions of supply chain partners.
