Eastman Business Park Wednesday released its most recent sustainability report, highlighting improvements the industrial complex made in 2010 during its ongoing transition from a chemical to a clean technology facility.

The sustainability report showcases efforts aimed at resource conservation, pollution prevention and work-force safety, all which have resulted in cleaner, safer, more energy-efficient operations at the park, said Eastman Business Park director Michael Alt.

Eastman Business Park occupies some 1,200 acres along a 4-mile stretch through Rochester and Greece. It has more than 100 manufacturing buildings, and its own power plant, water, sewer and wastewater treatment facilities. It was formerly the site of Eastman Kodak Co.’s imaging and research operations.

The site now houses more than 30 companies who employ more than 4,000 people.

Eastman Business Park’s Sustainability Report, as well as Kodak’s Global Sustainability Report, is available at http://www.kodak.com/go/sustainability.
