Since 2011, Freeport-McMoRan’s Pollinator Conservation Initiative has sought to increase the habitat for pollinators and to provide learners of all ages with opportunities to engage with topics in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM). Today, more than a dozen Freeport-McMoRan operations in North America have implemented pollinator conservation and education projects both on and off company property.
These programs have been recognized through the Wildlife Habitat Council’s (WHC) Conservation Certification program.
Nearly 300 photos of flora and fauna taken by General Motors employees around the globe were submitted for the company’s annual Wildlife Habitat Calendar contest. The program highlights the plants and animals that call GM’s industry-leading 71 Wildlife Habitat Council certified sites home.
General Motors’ Customer Care and Aftersales World Headquarters in Grand Blanc, Michigan is practicing environmental stewardship that recently earned it another star. For the fourth year running, the facility earned EPA ENERGY STAR® certification, meaning this office building performs better in energy efficiency than 75 percent of similar buildings nationwide.
Like a number of automakers, Toyota's philanthropy has been keenly attuned to STEM education in recent years, as we reported recently. What's less well known is that Toyota supports some environmental work as well. The company makes environmental grants in Japan and overseas.
The natural resources that Freeport-McMoRan produces are essential to the world's economies. As population growth and urbanization continue to accelerate, Freeport-McMoRan’s products are critical to a rising standard of living on a global scale. The foundation of Freeport-McMoRan’s plans for production growth and resource expansions includes their commitment to join with stakeholders in working toward sustainable development.

BALTIMORE, Md., November 15, 2013 /3BL Media/ – Among the features of a wildlife habitat behind the General Motors Canada Limited headquarters building is a 4½-mile trail designed to help the visually impaired better experience the preserve’s natural beauty.
When it comes to fuel economy, you usually don’t find sports car buyers worrying about how many miles they can get on a tank of gas. They just want something that rides fast and looks good on the open road, like the 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray.
General Motors’ Tonawanda Engine facility in New York is now closer to its goal of establishing a wildlife habitat on its property thanks to the planting efforts of 100 students. Local elementary and high school students recently helped our facility transform a brownfield space (the former GM Foundry), into a green buffer that will soon provide home to pollinators and other creatures.
