Kodak Among 100 Top Sustainable Companies Eastman Kodak Co. has once again been named to the list of "Global 100 Most Sustainable Corporations in the World." The list is compiled by Corporate Knights Inc., with Innovest Value Strategic Advisors as the research analytic data pro- vider. Kodak has been selected for the list in all four years of its existence. As noted on the Global 100 website (http://www.global100.org/2008/index.asp), a company that makes the Global 100 is part of a select group---companies whose sustainability performance falls within the top 5 percent of their sector, and have been chosen from among 2,000 of the world's largest corporations. These com- panies have demonstrated through perfor- mance and strategic intent a greater ability to successfully manage the "triple bottom line" (society, environment, and economy). In addition to this latest recogni- tion on the Global 100 list, The Roberts Environmental Center, a research insti- tute associated with Claremont McKenna College, has announced that Kodak has re- ceived an "A+" sustainability rating in the Scientific, Photo and Control Equipment sector. The next highest rating in the sector was a "B." The Roberts Center has produced some 800 online reports on in- dividual companies as a joint effort among the center's faculty, research associates, and students in Claremont's five colleges. All analyses are available online (http:// www.roberts.cmc.edu/).

Sheridan, former strategic accounts manager with Williamson Printing Materials Ltd., passed away Jan. 28. He was 67. Sheridan joined Williamson in 1959, shortly after graduating high school. He held a number of roles with the company, including those of sales rep, and eventually national sales manager. In 2003, he assumed the position of strategic accounts manager, which he held until his retirement in 2005. "During the 29 years I worked with Brian he was at all times a professional," said Ron Schroder, technical services manager at Williamson. "His customers adored him. His competitors respected him. We all loved him. His legacy will live on and he will be sorely missed." INDUSTRY INDICATORS
