Wilson R. Jones, President and Chief Executive Officer
Welcome to our third annual Sustainability Report. Oshkosh Corporation was founded nearly a century ago on the values of honesty, integrity, accountability, respect and citizenship. In everything we do, we take these values to heart and strive to make a difference for our customers, our communities, our employees and the environment. This FY2015 report highlights the significant progress our global Company has made over the past year to make a difference in all areas of sustainability.
FY2015 was another successful year for our Company in large part due to the collective talents and efforts of our 13,300 team members around the world. We experience success when we focus on our people, rally around a shared purpose to inspire the best in each other, and create value for our customers through our superior performance.
I am proud of the many ways Oshkosh Corporation made a difference throughout FY2015. A few highlights include:
Making a difference for people and communities. We always strive to be a top employer and a partner of choice for the communities where we live and work. In FY2015, Oshkosh Corporation contributed $1.4 million to community initiatives around the world. We were also honored with the New North Workplace Excellence Award, further demonstrating how our business succeeds through both our Company culture and the programs that support our team members.
Making a difference for customers. At Oshkosh Corporation, our ultimate goal is to ensure that our products are of the highest quality so that every construction worker, emergency responder or Warfighter can do their job safely and effectively. Our commitment to innovation continued in FY2015 with the introduction of our Pierce Ascendant aerial ladder and our McNeilus Meridian front loader. We are honored to have received the 2015 “Best of What’s New” distinction from Popular Science Magazine for our innovative Oshkosh Defense L-ATV military vehicle development.
Making a difference for the environment. We continued progress toward achieving our ambitious environmental goals set in 2014 for reducing waste and energy use. We made significant investments in energy efficiency at facilities in Wisconsin, which helped us win the 2015 Business Friend to the Environment Award for Sustainability. Additionally, our ISO 19001-certified JLG Medias facility in Romania continues to be a great example of environmental stewardship.
