Member Companies in the News.

DTE Energy has finalized a new clean energy agreement with Ford Motor Company that will soon allow the automaker to attribute all its electricity supply in Michigan to clean energy. DTE will add 650 megawatts of new solar energy capacity in Michigan for Ford by 2025.  DTE estimates that the construction of the solar arrays will create 250 temporary jobs and 10 permanent jobs. Local communities that host DTE’s renewable energy projects also benefit from the additional tax revenue these projects generate. This revenue can be used for community support services including roads, schools, libraries and first responders. “We want to congratulate Ford Motor Company for its environmental leadership and commitment to clean energy,” said Jerry Norcia, chairman and CEO, DTE Energy. “Ford was the first large industrial customer to enroll in our MIGreenPower program in 2019 and we thank Ford for its continued commitment to using MIGreenPower to help decarbonize its operations and meet its sustainability goals.”


The Estée Lauder Companies (ELC) announced its commitment to transition 100% of its global corporate fleet of vehicles to electric by 2030. As part of this commitment, ELC has also become the first company in prestige beauty to join the Climate Group’s EV100 initiative, which brings together companies who are committed to accelerating the transition to electric vehicles (EV). “The Estée Lauder Companies has a deep commitment to helping accelerate the transition to a low-carbon future, and the electrification of our corporate fleet is an important next step in our sustainability journey,” said Nancy Mahon, senior vice president, global corporate citizenship and sustainability, The Estée Lauder Companies. “Our hope is that our commitment to clean transportation will not only help to reduce our impact and engage our employees in our commitment, but also inspire similar action by others in the industry and beyond.”


NI released its 2021 Corporate Impact Report, which outlines the company’s first full year of progress toward its 2030 goals to make a positive impact on society and the planet. This progress ranges from building infrastructure for increasing NI’s workforce and supplier diversity over the next decade to creating hands-on STEM education programs that are already changing children’s lives every day. “We are living through a period of rapid evolution. We see it with our customers who are accelerating the digital transformation of our world, and we see it in our society and across our planet,” said Eric Starkloff, CEO, NI. “Our 2030 Corporate Impact Strategy reflects our desire to be a driver of positive change.”


Point32Health Foundation announced grants totaling $1 million to advance social and racial equity. The funds will support nonprofit organizations that include diverse voices and perspectives, eliminate systemic barriers, and advocate for stronger communities. Harvard Pilgrim Health Care Foundation and Tufts Health Plan Foundation, which combined to become Point32Health Foundation, have committed more than $5.5 million to support racial equity since 2020. “We are honored to support the important work these non-profits are doing in promoting equity and making transformative societal changes,” said Cain Hayes, president and CEO of Point32Health and a member of the Point32Health Foundation board of directors. “They are addressing persistent inequities that affect almost every issue in society and we know these grants will have a positive impact in communities throughout the region.”


The UPS Foundation and volunteers from UPS in Anchorage worked with OPERATION RAMP IT UP to build the organization's first wheelchair ramp in Alaska. The ramp was for a local veteran with 44 years of federal service, 22 in the military, and another 22 as a civilian. OPERATION RAMP IT UP was founded by Greg Schneider, a UPS driver of 42 years, to help install ramps for people in need of mobility assistance. One of the organization’s goals is to install ramps in all 50 states.
