CAMPAIGN: Reporting at GE


GE's 2010 Citizenship Report: Sustainable Growth cites research that "shows that on average, positive, opportunity-focused application of environmental, social and governance investment criteria leads to outperformance," according to Cary Krosinsky, Senior Vice President of Trucost, an environmental investment research firm.  "The challenge is not to measure the financial return for doing good," states the report, "but rather the financial rewards from successfully addressing global challenges with profitable products and services."
