A strong commitment to community is one of the strongest foundations of rural America and the biofuels industry, and through GE Cares, we support a number of local programs to ensure we uphold those same values. And when those who bravely served our country come home, the industry stands ready to help them rejoin civilian life.

The U.S. ethanol industry is one of the top employers of our nation’s veterans, meaning 21 percent of the biofuels workforce has served in our armed forces.

One of the programs GE Cares supports is the Vail Veterans Program (VVP). Since 2004, the VVP has created programs to ensure our veterans have the resources they need to heal both physically and mentally, but also provide critical support for their families. From outdoor activities to member caregiver retreats, the VVP goes above and beyond for those who risk it all for our freedom. We’re proud to support VVP.

Hearing our stories helps legislators fight for a strong RFS, and not even 2020 could stop us from sharing. During our #BiofuelsSummit last week, we went virtual to update nearly 100 legislators and staff on the top priorities for our industry. brownfieldagnews.com/news/virtual-b…

"We showed Washington that ethanol is not only essential, but an unsung hero in the effort to eradicate the virus. No other industry is in the same position to revitalize rural America.”
