FALLS CHURCH, Va., July 19 – CSC (NYSE: CSC) announced today that it has been recognized by the FTSE4Good Index Series, an index series that recognizes companies for their corporate responsibility standards, and by Business in the Community’s CR Index, the UK’s leading voluntary benchmark of corporate responsibility.

Laphen. “This achievement is a testament to our corporate responsibility efforts and our commitment to supporting global sustainability standards.”
Created by the global index company FTSE Group, FTSE4Good is an equity index series that is designed to facilitate investment in companies that meet globally recognized corporate responsibility standards. Companies in the FTSE4Good Index Series have met stringent social and environmental criteria, and are positioned to capitalize on the benefits of responsible business practice.
