For those not familiar. Halliburton is one of the largest multinational oil companies in the world. Most controlling interests are American. We all know how Halliburton made out during the the Iraq war. We also know who happened to have VERY strong ties to that same company during the Iraq war.

For the sixth consecutive year, the Dow Jones Sustainability Indices (DJSI) identify Halliburton (NYSE: HAL) as a leader in corporate sustainability. The company exceeded industry averages in the Economic, Environmental and Social Performance categories, maintaining its place in the DJSI World Index.



Halliburton's continued commitment to advancing its global vision and goals for corporate responsibility and sustainability earned high rankings in several industry categories, and the company received industry best scores for:

  • Codes of Conduct, Compliance, Corruption and Bribery
  • Releases to the Environment
  • Human Capital Development



Halliburton received a perfect score in the "Releases to the Environment" category.


"This achievement demonstrates Halliburton's commitment to corporate responsibility and sustainability," said Jeff Miller, Halliburton president and Chief Health, Safety and Environment Officer. "I thank our employees for their consistent execution of our collective values that were recognized in our industry-leading DJSI World Index ranking."


Kind of helps you understand as to why we need to 'protect our freedoms', over there in the Middle East.......
