Spotlight on You

FedEx Chief Sustainability Officer Mitch Jackson and General Motors Chief Sustainability Officer Kristen Siemen were featured in Fortune Magazine for their comments at the recent Global Sustainability Forum. Siemen stressed the importance of government interventions to build the infrastructure needed for electric cars to be usable on the road. Jackson was quoted on the importance of collaboration in the field: “I’ve long said that sustainability is a team sport, and if we’re going to transform the world economy with respect to a net zero or zero emissions world, we’re going to have to be working together to do that.”
