Our community partner Samra’a Luqman, an activist living in Dearborn who is engaged in our efforts to decarbonize the auto industry, recently had an opinion piece published in The Detroit News. She writes:

While we support GM’s commitment to being carbon neutral by 2040, more must be done to hold their suppliers accountable to achieve that goal. As a community that has lived with decades of pollution from the steel plant currently owned by GM’s six-time steel “supplier of the year,” [Cleveland] Cliffs, we urge GM to ensure that the steel plant blast furnace is not relined and only commits to sources from steelmakers producing low-carbon steel made with green energy.
