The Nature Conservancy Congratulates Trustee Gerry Anderson on Climate Leadership Award

Lansing, Michigan | March 01, 2018

Leaders of The Nature Conservancy congratulated Gerry Anderson, president and CEO of DTE Energy, for receiving the Climate Leadership Award from the Center for Climate and Energy Solutions today in Denver. Anderson has served as a volunteer leader of the Conservancy’s Michigan Board of Trustees since 1997.

The award was given today at a conference that highlights climate action by companies and state and local governments in the absence of federal leadership on climate and clean energy. The award recognizes exemplary leadership in response to climate change.

“We’re proud of Gerry and the leadership he’s shown not just in our state or region, but nationally and even globally on climate change,” said Helen Taylor, Michigan state director for The Nature Conservancy. “Gerry’s leadership shows others in the energy industry that we can all work together to find and implement sustainable solutions for our planet.”
