Nature-loving employees photograph wildlife at GM sites
Our manufacturing sites around the world sit on diverse terrain filled with animals, flowers and colorful vegetation. With certified habitat programs at 40 of our facilities around the world, we like to promote and cultivate that wildlife, getting our nature-loving employees involved along the way.
Outside of work, we have employees who hike, birdwatch, fish, or garden. They have a natural interest in nature, so we give them opportunities to help us keep the habitats outside our facilities’ windows and walls thriving.
Osprey nest installation latest effort by GM employees to help neighborhood
The site of a large predatory bird, soaring in the air near downtown Flint created a lot of excitement recently for a group walking along Thread Creek near GM’s Flint-North American Tooling Center.
The group – mainly Flint-area media – was hiking to a meadow where Consumers Energy employees were going to install a 45-foot pole and osprey nesting platform that had been fabricated in the nearby GM plant.
Watch and listen as members of our sustainability team explain the work we've done -- and the work we're doing -- to reduce our environmental impact.
We talk a lot about the environment on this blog. After all, it is a sustainability blog.
But sometimes words just don’t cut it. You, the reader, need a visual; something that stimulates your occipital lobe.
So we created a video that showcases the sustainability team you’ve come to know and love, and we added a few things to punch it up. We think after you watch it you’ll come away with a greater understanding of how we operate at GM.
We talked to a Southern Oregon University student to learn how the university is making energy efficiency gains.
Chevrolet supports the cause for cleaner air. We’re reimagining manufacturing to lower environmental impact and designing efficient vehicles. But there are other ways to fuel the clean-energy movement beyond transportation and industry. To us, it’s about finding the innovators who are doing big things to leave a smaller footprint.
Facilities in Europe take cue from United States and roll out green construction programs to benefit the environment.
Since launching General Motor’s Green Construction program in 2012, all of our U.S. construction sites follow strict environmental requirements throughout the demolition, build and renovation processes. In fact, since 2009, GM has announced almost $11 billion of investments in U.S. facilities, all of which involve plant refurbishments.
GM retirees and Detroit students combine forces on area beautification projects.
For many high school students, these are not words associated with summer vacations.
Yet, they were the day-to-day realities for a group of Metro Detroit students who spent their summer doing much more than going to the beach. They brought revitalization and beauty to their communities.
Lisa Bardwell, president and CEO of Earth Force, reflects on the nonprofit's long standing partnership with GM and the organizations' shared commitment to STEM education and environmental…
General Motors and national nonprofit Earth Force share a passion for STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) education. Together, we are working to engage young people in inquiry-based, hands-on learning, while providing adults with the tools and skills needed to implement high-quality STEM education.
GM has added a critical component to STEM education within Earth Force – GM mentors provide real world connections and workforce reinforcement to thousands of students across the country.
