General Motors isn’t just hoping for a better future — it’s working to make it a reality for us all. For its efforts in areas like climate leadership and social justice, General Motors has been named one of Ethisphere’s World’s Most Ethical Companies for the second year in a row.
GM is the only automaker recognized on this year’s list of the World’s Most Ethical Companies. Among the reasons is the company’s work during the pandemic, which includes manufacturing 30,000 ventilators and millions of face masks. General Motors also stepped up in the name of racial justice in 2020, committing $10 million to organizations that fight for equity and equality.
From a production standpoint, GM is also leading the charge when it comes to combating climate change. General Motors is investing $27 billion in electrified vehicle development and plans to be totally carbon neutral by 2040. This investment will result in awesome vehicles like the all-new Bolt EUV and GMC HUMMER EV.
“GM’s Code of Conduct sets forth our fundamental commitment to conduct business openly, ethically and honestly, even when it is difficult to do so,” said Michael Ortwein, assistant general counsel and chief compliance officer. “The World’s Most Ethical Company designation is external validation of GM’s core principles and yet another instance of GM leading by example on the path to transform the industry.”
