LANSING, Mich. — State Rep. John Bizon, R-Battle Creek, introduced House Resolution 357 designating May 30 “Corporate Citizenship Day” in recognition of the upstanding corporations operating in the state of Michigan.
Sen. Mike Nofs, R-Battle Creek, supported a similar resolution in the Senate and applauded Bizon’s effort to recognize the businesses within the state that are operating at a high standard.
“We should recognize the job creators that focus on sustainability and lead by example to make a positive impact on our communities,” said Nofs. “Michigan has many great companies that are committed to giving back and creating opportunities for the people of Michigan.”
Nofs pointed to Kellogg’s Global Corporate Responsibility Report as an example of a company’s commitment to transparency and philanthropy. Kellogg has a number of food-related programs in Michigan to combat hunger and improve environmental sustainability of agriculture.
A native of Battle Creek, Nofs further noted that Kellogg has been setting the standard for good corporate citizenship for nearly a century. True to its founding ideals, Kellogg is recognized around the world for ethical and sustainable business practices.
