GE's Citizenship Report Tackles Energy, Climate Change, Demographics

Governments, business and society must all play a role in renewing our economies, solving societal problems and creating jobs, says CEO.

GE recently released its fifth annual Citizen's report entitled "Resetting Responsibilities." The report reviews GE's worldwide operations for the 2008 fiscal year and reviews GE's corporate responsibility initiatives from the perspective of four key themes -- energy and climate change, demographics, growth markets and financial markets.

"Governments, business and society must all play a role in renewing our economies, solving societal problems and creating jobs," Jeff Immelt, CEO of GE said. "GE's focus on integrity, our experience and our efforts on advancing the social needs of health, infrastructure, energy, finance and education position us as a natural partner in a sustainable economic recovery."

"General Electric has made a serious effort to draw a corporate responsibility roadmap for employees, investors, and other stakeholders," said Elizabeth McGeveran, senior vice president for Governance & Sustainable Investment at F&C Management Ltd.
