General Motors China was named one of the top five most socially responsible Fortune 500 companies at this year’s Corporate Social Responsibility Annual Conference in Beijing.
Over the years, GM China has engaged in a number of programs that have supported road safety, environmental protection, and public health in the country. “Our employees, partners and the public have also gotten involved to help create a greener, safer and healthier community,” said GM China vice president of public policy and government relations Albert Xie.
GM China noted a few campaigns that highlight the company’s commitment to corporate social responsibility. These include efforts by GM China to raise “more than RMB 4 million to support relief and rebuilding efforts in earthquake-hit Ya’an, Sichuan,” a viral project that encouraged seat belt use among China’s drivers, and a “visit to the Shanghai Chongming Dongtan National Nature Reserve to increase public awareness of environmental protection in China” as part of GM’s Restoring Nature’s Habitat project that is “helping preserve three migratory bird sanctuaries in eastern China.”
This is the second year in a row GM China has been noted for its leading corporate social responsibility at the conference.
