MARLBOROUGH, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Hologic, Inc. (Nasdaq: HOLX) announced today the on-line publication of its 2020 sustainability report, “The Power of Purpose.”
The report describes how Hologic is making a unique difference in the world through its Purpose, Passion and Promise, and features progress the Company is making in key environmental, social and governance areas.

Although these challenges were both unexpected and unwanted, they made us stronger for the future as we continue to evolve and grow.”
