GE ENVIRONMENTAL, SOCIAL AND GOVERNANCE
GE brings to market innovative solutions that deliver essential energy, healthcare and transportation infrastructure. We work with the highest integrity, compliance culture and respect for human rights while also reducing the impact of our technology and environmental footprint.
GE's Reservoir is a flexible, compact energy storage platform for the grid. The 4 megawatt-hour storage unit holds enough energy to power 120 homes for a day.
The GE9X jet engine will power Boeing’s long-range 777X and be the largest aircraft engine ever produced. It is designed to generate 10% less CO2 greenhouse gas emissions and 45% less smog-causing emissions than the GE90–115B engine it replaces.
The Haliade-X 12-megawatt turbine will be capable of producing 67 gigawatt-hours per year, based on wind conditions of a typical German North Sea site. This represents about 45% more energy than any other offshore wind turbine available today.
The GE Board of Directors and its committees oversee the execution of GE’s Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) strategy as part of their oversight of business strategy and risk management. In 2018, the Board reviewed ESG-related topics such as EHS Programs and disclosure of lobbying and trade association spending.
We select priority issues where both the need as expressed by critical stakeholders and GE’s unique potential for impact are greatest. For each ESG priority, we employ GE’s deep expertise and advanced technologies to improve outcomes. Based on this process, GE’s ESG Steering Committee selected the following priorities:
- Integrity & Compliance
- Human Rights
- Climate & Energy
