Honda powers Nature Conservancy with $100K grant

The Nature Conservancy in Alabama has received a $100,000 grant award from Honda to fund solar panels for its new headquarters, the organization announced.

“This is a huge win for us and a great opportunity to again partner with Honda on its mission to support  conservation initiatives across the U.S.,” said State Director Mitch Reid.

“We cannot affect positive change without the support of likeminded companies and individuals, and we are thankful for the commitment Honda has continuously shown to TNC chapters over the years.” 

Honda’s dedication to The Nature Conservancy is not new.

More than 30 years ago, Honda began its partnership with the organization’s Ohio chapter, which has since yielded more than $1 million and 90 acres of land. Through the years, Honda has also backed chapters in Alabama, California, and Indiana.

As recently as April 2023, Honda made a pledge of $625,000 to support Nature Conservancy programs across 10 states.

The programs address vast environmental issues ranging from sustainability and renewable energy to climate change and ecosystem resilience. The recent grant to in Alabama is a component of that broader commitment.

The Nature Conservancy, with operations in 79 countries and territories, is a global entity aimed at conserving lands and waters vital for life. By leveraging science and innovation, the organization develops practical solutions to pressing environmental challenges, working in tandem with local communities, governments, the private sector, and other stakeholders.

Honda, with over 60 years of operation in the U.S., has always shown commitment to the betterment of communities surrounding its associates. Learn more about Honda’s corporate social responsibility at csr.honda.com.
