How GM Is Going All Electric – Kristen Siemen, Chief Sustainability Officer, General Motors

“We’ll have over 50% of our facilities producing EVs here in the U.S. by 2025. We’ve announced four battery plants here in the U.S., a number of supply chain agreements, again, to really get those critical minerals happening here. So, so really excited to see where this, this is going to take us.” Kristen Siemen on Electric Ladies Podcast

General Motors announced it was going all-electric by around 2035, in some ways pushing the legacy automakers to accelerate their transitions too. They also committed to reducing their carbon footprint overall aggressively, from materials, to how they power their plants, to the supply chain. How are they doing it?

Listen to Kristen Siemen, Chief Sustainability Officer at General Motors, and a 28-year veteran of the company, in this remarkable interview with host Joan Michelson on Electric Ladies Podcast about how General Motors is pivoting its entire manufacturing process to electric vehicles, and driving more innovation at the same time.

You’ll hear:

“It’s really about being transparent, you know, and being comfortable to give your opinion and, and ask for what you want to do and where you want to work or, or what type of assignment you’d like to have. And so, it all circles back to that passion. If you like what you’re doing, you’re going to work harder and you’re going to be the person that they want on the team.” Kristen Siemen on Electric Ladies podcast
