Eastman is one of only three companies to achieve Champion level in the Southeastern Corporate Sustainability Rankings for 2014. 

Along with two of the leading logistics and transportation companies in the world, UPS and FedEx, Eastman was recognized for leadership and diligence in the realm of sustainability. And our progress is reflected in the regional rankings. For 2014, Eastman placed 1st for the state of Tennessee and 2nd overall. This is a jump on the list from 2013, where Eastman placed 2nd for the state and 12th overall.

“It is an honor to be recognized on this list for the work we are doing and the progress we’ve made on our sustainability journey,” said Anne Kilgore, Director of Sustainability. “We are certainly proud of the work many Eastman team members are doing around the world to improve our environmental footprint, develop innovative sustainably-advantaged products, and make a difference in the communities where we work and live. Validation from third-party assessments such as Southeastern Corporate Sustainability Rankings further reinforces that our efforts are paying back dividends.”

These rankings spotlight publicly traded companies headquartered in Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, & Tennessee. Rankings are based on 141 quantitative and qualitative environmental, social and governance performance metrics.
