The report covers GE's worldwide operations for the 2009 fiscal year and is structured around the discussion of three pillars of GE's strategy - energy and climate change, sustainable healthcare, and capacity building.

It also includes an in-depth discussion on the relationship between business and society, and how GE's people, products, and services help to enable prosperous and productive communities around the world.

Additionally it is supported by a newly designed citizenship website with full performance metrics data, plus more than 20 essays on current citizenship topics.

Highlights in this year's report include:

  details of a reconvened Expert Advisory Panel that offered comments, questions and suggestions for the report and provided an unedited letter of public commentary. Also included is GE's response to last year's panel letter.

  updates on GE's human rights statement of principles implementation, product innovation in emerging markets, public policy engagement, and reporting on the company's greenhouse gas emissions and water use.
