 Fortune Names Peabody Energy Most Admired Companies

I love passing on news stories of local companies doing good because I think it just emphasizes why the Saint Louis area is such a great place to live. (and work!)

So, I'm happy to say that our town's Peabody Energy (NYSE: BTU), for the third year in a row no less, has been named to Fortune Magazine's Most Admired Companies list for 2006. Peabody placed second in the Mining and Crude Oil Production sector, up three places from their 2005 position.

"The company set records for safety, financial performance and shareholder returns in 2005 and continues to outperform the industry," said Peabody President and Chief Executive Officer Gregory H. Boyce. "I am particularly proud that Peabody placed first in its sector for social responsibility."

Peabody placed first or second in every one of Fortune's categories, including innovation, people management, social responsibility and quality of products and services.

If you don't know who Peabody Energy, they're headquartered in Downtown St. Louis and are the world's largest private-sector coal company, with $4.6 billion in revenues. More important, Peabody is responsible for powering 10 percent of all U.S. electricity.
