MILWAUKEE, WI - June 12, 2008 - Rockwell Automation (NYSE: ROK) today announced its 2007 Corporate Responsibility Report is now available. Titled Growing Responsibly, the report reviews how Rockwell Automation's products and services help customers meet their sustainability objectives. Additionally the report provides metrics on Rockwell Automation's own performance, which included reducing electricity, liquid fuel and natural gas usage; direct and indirect carbon emissions; and solid waste generation.
"Rockwell Automation is focused on growth. It's more than just an eye on our revenues and profit margins. We know our growth - our sustainability as a company - depends on the growth of our customers, employees and communities," said Keith D. Nosbusch, Rockwell Automation chairman and CEO. "Some call it responsibility. Others call it sustainability. The core value is the same. For us, growing responsibly is doing what's right not only for business performance, but also for our customers, employees, communities, shareholders and the world around us."
Nosbusch believes responsibility adds to the bottom line. Many Rockwell Automation customers have adopted sustainability goals. The company supports these efforts with products and solutions to help make factories safer, more energy efficient and cleaner, which benefits surrounding communities as well.
Rockwell Automation helps customers:
"Sustainable production helps our customers achieve business goals that have always been a priority - use equipment and systems as efficiently as possible, increase productivity, reduce costs and quickly respond to customers," commented Nosbusch. "Throughout our history, every time customers have faced new business and manufacturing opportunities, we have been there to help them find solutions. We view sustainability - growing responsibly - as another one of those opportunities to innovate for customer success."
