May 17, 2017 /3BL Media/ - Today, Eastman’s Senior Vice President, Chief Legal & Sustainability Officer, and Corporate Secretary, David A. Golden, celebrated the New York Stock Exchange’s 225th Anniversary in New York City.

The event kicked off the new “Ring True” campaign, which celebrates NYSE’s vision for the future and the role NYSE-listed companies have in changing the world. Eastman was among a select group of companies invited to ring the opening bell, highlighting their commitments to sustainability and corporate responsibility and sharing examples of the great things they are doing to create positive change in the world.

Eastman’s corporate responsibility efforts focus on bringing together the right people and the right projects at the right time to make a catalytic and transformative difference in the world. One example is the company’s emphasis on the importance of ocean science and its work with Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (WHOI).

“Because the ocean and ocean life are fundamental to our climate and weather systems, the Eastman Foundation is supporting WHOI in developing innovative ways to observe and measure ocean processes,” said Golden. “At Eastman, we believe a truly sustainable company is one that creates significantly more value than the resources it uses. I am proud of the work that our global team members are doing every day to make a difference in their communities and I’m honored to participate in the NYSE anniversary celebration to reinforce Eastman’s commitments. I’m optimistic about the future and the efforts underway by the companies represented at this event.”
