A group of companies with retail and manufacturing facilities across Missouri including General Motors, General Mills, Target, Unilever, Procter & Gamble, Kellogg’s and Nestlé, joined in supporting the Grain Belt Express project, noting that the “Grain Belt Express Clean Line is an opportunity to provide our companies with a link to low-cost renewable energy at a scale that is meaningful.”

These companies, which collectively employ more than 10,000 Missourians and own dozens of facilities across the state, each have corporate sustainability goals and are a part of a broader t rend of companies around the country using their purchasing power to call for more renewable energy. The companies stated in a letter to the Missouri Public Service Commission, “Access to renewable energy is increasingly important to our decisions about where to expand and to site new facilities.”  Click here to view the letter.
