We’re proud to announce that General Motors has been included on this year’s Dow Jones Sustainability Indices, a global index long considered the gold standard for corporate sustainability.

That is especially true on World Environment Day (WED), when our global teams rally during the month of June to amplify environmental outreach activities in their facilities or communities.
