OSHKOSH, Wis. (February 27, 2020) – Oshkosh Corporation (NYSE: OSK), a leading innovator of mission-critical vehicles and equipment, today announced that it has been named one of Barron’s “100 Most Sustainable Companies” for the third consecutive year.
In addition to once again being part of Barron’s “100 Most Sustainable Companies” ranking, Oshkosh has also been included in the S&P Global Sustainability Yearbook for the third consecutive year recognizing the Company’s sustainability performance by placing in the top 15% in its industry category. For the second time in three years, Oshkosh has been listed as an “Industry Mover” in the Yearbook recognizing that the Company’s score increase outperformed its industry peers.
“As an organization, we continually look for ways to operate and innovate more sustainably while delivering strong value for our stakeholders,” said Kevin Tubbs, Oshkosh Corporation Vice President and Chief Ethics, Compliance & Sustainability Officer. “We are proud to be included on both of these esteemed rankings which highlight our ongoing efforts of sustainability excellence.”
Barron’s partnered with Calvert Research and Management to create the ranking. Calvert started by ranking the 1,000 largest publicly traded companies by market value and then measuring performance on five key areas including shareholders, employees, customers, community and the planet. During the process, Calvert reviewed more than 230 performance indicators and gave each company a rating between 0-100. From there, the overall rating was calculated. Of the top 100 companies, Oshkosh is ranked 37.
In addition to being named one of Barron’s “100 Most Sustainable Companies” and an “Industry Mover” in the S&P Sustainability Yearbook, Oshkosh is also listed on the Dow Jones Sustainability World Index, has been named one of the World’s Most Ethical Companies by Ethisphere® five years in a row and was recognized on Newsweek’s “America’s Most Responsible Companies 2020” list.
