Ways That Ford Integrates Sustainability into the Company

All the Ways That Ford Integrates Sustainability into the Company
WESTLAND, Mich. - After grabbing the number two spot on Interbrand's 2013 Best Global Green Brands Report, a hot topic of discussion is all the ways that Ford integrates sustainability into the company. Ford is environmentally sustainable in  numerous ways, and it continually evolves to be more efficient and environmentally friendly. Although continuing to change, here are just a few ways that Ford integrates sustainability into the company:

  • Ford has set a 30 percent water-use-per-vehicle reduction goal for itself, hoping to achieve this goal by 2015. However, they have already decreased it by 25 percent since 2009 meaning they could easily exceed their goal by 2015! Just to put the 25 percent in perspective, they have saved 10.6 billion gallons of water since their first move towards conservation in 2000.
  • Between 2000 and 2012, Ford has achieved a 37 percent decrease in carbon emissions per vehicle. This does wonders for the greenhouse gases in our atmosphere, ensuring the Ford contributes to global warming as little as possible.
  • With a goal to reduce the amount of waste-to-landfill by 40 percent per vehicle by 2016, Ford has already reduced the amount by 19 percent over the course of one year. They are able to do this by incorporating recycled materials into the production of their vehicles, such as the 2013 Ford Fusion's seat fabric that is made from recycled plastic water bottles and post-industrial waste.
  • Improved global energy efficiency by 6.4 percent! This means that Ford is working on reducing the amount of energy required to make one of their vehicles. 6.4 percent in all of their factories around the world is a huge step in the right direction.
While these are only a few of the changes that Ford has made to make their company more sustainable, there is still so much that Ford continues to do to become more sustainable. Ford Motor Company works everyday to become more efficient, hoping to contribute to making the world a greener and healthier place.
