Response of General Electric to “Toxic 100” ranking
GE has a comprehensive EHS (environment, health & safety) management system that operates globally. Since 1987, GE has reduced its emissions by more than 85%, despite greatly expanding its production. We continually evaluate opportunities to further reduce our emissions. The US Environmental Protection Agency has stated that the model used by PERI is properly used for screening purposes only and it is not a quantitative risk assessment model and thus not independently meaningful.
