GE today released its seventh annual Citizenship Report, entitled Sustainable Growth, at

The report covers GE's worldwide operations for the 2010 fiscal year and is structured around discussions of GE's long-term value creation in addressing the world's most pressing problems.

"Sustainable growth requires solutions that go beyond the scale of individual companies," Jeff Immelt, chairman and CEO of GE, said.  "As economies renew, governments, businesses, and society must all play a role in solving economic and societal problems.  GE's commitment to high standards of integrity and social and environmental performance, as well as our ability to innovate, position us as a natural partner in helping solve the world's toughest problems."

Highlights in this year's report include:

  An analysis tracing the source of GE's long-term value creation through the lens of good citizenship, by identifying global challenges, GE's expertise and contribution, and the relationship to value creation.

  Expert perspectives from more than 20 global thought leaders on key issues, on topics such as climate change, human rights, labor and supply chain.

  A ten-year retrospective, drawing on perspectives from the expert panel, reflecting upon the evolution of citizenship as well as opportunities for the future.

  List of key challenges and GE's value to address the challenges. The GE Priority Matrix is introduced to highlight the areas where GE can have an impact, through its products and services or its business operations.

  Perspectives of GE CEO Jeff Immelt, Board Member Sam Nunn, Senior Vice President and General Counsel Brackett Denniston and Vice President of Corporate Citizenship Bob Corcoran.

  A new redesigned and re-launched website with more interactive, user-friendly navigation and narratives.

The report will be translated into four languages. To order a copy of the 2010 GE Citizenship Report, visit
