The U.N. Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), the set of 17 global goals adopted by 193 U.N. member states to end extreme poverty, fight inequality and injustice, and protect our planet, provide a common roadmap for organizations to measure impact.

At Keysight, we believe that our business and Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) goals are synergistic. We’re committed to building a better world through our solutions and services, and through ethical, responsible and sustainable operations. That commitment has now been recognized by Investor’s Business Daily (IBD), which placed Keysight at #18 in the first annual 50 Best ESG companies listing.
