Spotlight on You

Nikki Clifton, president of social impact and The UPS Foundation at UPS, was interviewed in the Stat Trade Times about how UPS supported and facilitated the equitable distribution of COVID-19 vaccines, as well as future plans to leverage public-private partnerships that advance more equitable vaccine distribution to remote locations in Africa, South America and Asia. “After Covid vaccines became available, The UPS Foundation identified an opportunity to leverage its logistics expertise and global network to ensure people in developing countries could access lifesaving vaccines,” said Clifton. “In December (2021), UPS surpassed the one billion COVID-19 vaccine doses delivered mark with near-perfect on-time delivery. These innovative efforts have helped advance vaccine equity in 18 countries across 5 continents.”

Reymundo Ocañas was featured in Houston Business Journal for recently taking the helm as EVP and director of community development banking at PNC—where he now oversees lending and giving to benefit neighborhoods across PNC's large U.S. footprint. PNC’s Regional President Julie Sudduth praised Ocañas and colleague Richard K. Bynum, EVP and chief corporate responsibility officer, on LinkedIn. “Their incredible teams have outlined a very strong path forward to lifting all of our markets through PNC's $88 Billion community benefits plan,” said Sudduth. “For 2022, my team here in Houston has been planning how we're going to bring PNC's community benefits commitment to life in a way that's going to have the biggest impact for Houstonians.”

Aramark Northern Europe has announced its commitment to become a net zero carbon organization by 2050, making it the first region in Aramark’s global operations to set a reduction glide path. The clearly defined carbon reduction target, based on a 2019 assessment baseline, encompasses all of Aramark Northern Europe’s Scope 1 and Scope 2 foodservice, workplace solutions, facilities management, as well as property and estate management services in the UK and Ireland, as well as a rigorous set of Scope 3 emissions categories. As part of the Aramark Northern Europe operational business, both the baseline and commitment include the Aberdeen-headquartered Aramark Global Offshore oil and gas operations.

Enbridge Gas Inc. and project partner Cummins Inc. announced that North America’s first hydrogen blending initiative is fully operational, and successfully serving the southern Ontario city of Markham. Enbridge Gas now has the capacity to deliver blended gas—that is, clean hydrogen injected into the natural gas distribution network to reduce the fuel’s carbon footprint—to approximately 3,600 customers in Markham. Hydrogen gas is a low- or zero-carbon energy source generated from natural gas via carbon capture, or from a clean or renewable electrical energy source via electrolysis.

Telus is expanding its Internet for Good program to seniors in Alberta and British Columbia. The program, first launched in 2016, provides low-income families and people with disabilities access to the internet at a reduced rate. The seniors program gives those receiving the Guaranteed Income Supplement two options for unlimited data. The program focuses on helping seniors access resources, staying connected with loved ones, and other aspects that can assist with their mental health, which has become increasingly difficult throughout the pandemic.
