Green Investment Firms Use Corporate Performance Track Ratings

EPA's Performance Track program provides environmental and social performance data as indicators to evaluate and rate companies.

California Performance Track Award Winner

Lockheed Martin Aeronautics Company
Palmdale, California

A member of Performance Track since 2005, this facility performs research, development, and assembly of aircraft prototypes; fabrication of low observable aircraft assemblies; and maintenance and modifications of U-2, F-117, and FA-22 aircraft. Employees and clients are informed of the facility's commitment to Performance Track through a variety of events and communications, including messages on environmental health and safety boards throughout the plant.

Performance Track is usually a topic in crew meetings, company electronic newsletters, building manager meetings, and on the facility's intranet. An electronic newsletter is sent to managers each year to reaffirm the facility's commitment to Performance Track and its environmental goals. In turn, the facility's general manager sends a letter of support for the program to all employees.

Lockheed Martin has hosted a member roundtable for EPA Region 9, and was successful in helping two facilities to join Performance Track. The facility has sent letters to members of Congress urging support and full funding for Performance Track, and has introduced Performance Track to the annual Certified Unified Program Agency conference as well as many other conferences and community events.

Investment Firms Use National Environmental Performance Track Data

Investment research and advisory firms are increasingly considering environmental and social performance as an indicator to evaluate and rate companies. This practice can benefit top-performing publicly traded companies, including many Performance Track members, by making them more attractive to investors and increasing their brand recognition.

EPA's National Environmental Performance Track

Performance Track recognizes and drives environmental excellence by encouraging facilities with strong environmental records to go above and beyond their legal requirements. Members set typically four public, measurable goals to improve the quality of our nation's air, water, and land.

Four leading financial firms, Calvert Group, Innovest Strategic Value Advisors, KLD Research & Analytics Inc. and Trucost Plc all use Performance Track data in their research methods. EPA is willing to cooperate with other investment firms to encourage the development of programs that promote environmental protection.

  • Innovest Strategic Value Advisors - Headquartered in New York, NY, Innovest is an investment research and advisory firm specializing in analyzing companies' performance on environmental, social, and strategic governance issues. Innovest evaluates companies using a Wall Street approach and uses benchmarking to compare companies with their peers.
  • KLD Research & Analytics Inc. - KLD, located in Boston, MA, is a provider of social research for institutional investors. KLD serves institutional clients who wish to integrate social criteria into their investment decisions.
  • Trucost Plc is an environmental research organization that helps companies and investors measure the environmental impacts of business activities in quantitative and financial terms.
