FPL Group named to 100 Best Corporate Citizens List

Juno Beach, Fla. – FPL Group has been named one of the 100 Best Corporate Citizens for 2010 by Corporate Responsibility Magazine.

“To be recognized as one of the top corporate citizens in the country is a tremendous honor and a tribute to FPL Group’s more than 15,000 employees. We take pride in being a company that does the right thing – environmentally, financially and socially. When President Obama helped commission our solar photovoltaic power plant in Florida last fall, he called us ‘a company that is doing well by doing good.’ That’s what we strive to do every day for our customers, our shareholders and the communities we serve,” said FPL Group Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Lew Hay.

The 100 Best Corporate Citizens List is based on over 360 data points of publicly available information in seven categories: environment, climate change, human rights, philanthropy, employee relations, financial performance, and governance. The 100 Best Corporate Citizens are selected from among the large-cap Russell 1000 companies, based on data provided by investor data firm IW Financial. The 100 Best Corporate Citizens List’s methodology is overseen by the Corporate Responsibility Officers Association.

FPL Group is the nation’s No. 1 provider of wind power, No. 1 provider of solar power, and its utility subsidiary, Florida Power & Light Company, has the nation’s No. 1 demand-side management program. In December 2009, FPL Group was named “Power Company of the Year” at the Platts Global Energy Awards against a field of international competitors. In September, the company was listed on the 2009 Dow Jones Sustainability Index (DJSI) of leading companies in North America for corporate sustainability. FPL Group was also named to the World’s Most Ethical Companies list by Ethisphere magazine in 2009, one of only 44 companies worldwide to be recognized by Ethisphere for three consecutive years.
