GM Doubles Carbon Neutrality Commitment to $50M

GM is committed to advancing carbon neutrality. That’s why the automaker has donated another $25 million to the Climate Equity Fund.

Starting last summer, GM launched the Climate Equity Fund with a $25 million donation. The fund’s stated purpose is to help drivers become comfortable and familiar with electric vehicles and other eco-friendly advances. It also sponsors local non-profit organizations, including Detroiters Working for Environmental Justice and The Greening of Detroit. These groups work towards environmentally conscious goals, like improving access to sustainable transportation options and educating the people about the green energy sector.

Now, the brand is pledging another $25 million to advance these causes further.

Chief sustainability officer at GM Kristen Siemen expressed the importance of working to halt climate change. “Doubling our Climate Equity Fund will help meet this urgency with deepened engagement at the community level, where we believe our support will have the greatest impact in accelerating the transition to an inclusive zero-emissions future,” she stated in a release.

The automaker’s commitment to stopping climate change doesn’t end at here — GM has also invested $35 billion to help bring innovative electric vehicles to market, such as the GMC HUMMER EV lineup and the upcoming electric GMC Sierra pickup.
