CDP Names Ford to Climate ‘A List’ for its Green Initiatives

 

For the first time, Ford Motor Company has been named to the CPD’s Climate ‘A List’ for climate change. Ford made the list alongside 34 other American companies for its actions towards cutting emissions and lowering climate risks.

“Our people, our customers and our investors expect us to constantly do more to address climate change,” said Bob Holycross, vice president, sustainability, environment and safety engineering. “For more than 20 years, Bill Ford, our executive chairman, has been driving us to act more boldly around climate change.”

Ford is currently investing more than $11.5 billion in electric vehicles and hopes to power all its manufacturing plants globally with 100 percent renewable energy by 2035. In order to get Americans on board, Ford is introducing zero-emissions versions of its most popular models including an electric F-150 and the Mustang Mach-E. The Mustang Mach-E received such a receptive audience, that pre-orders officially sold-out earlier in the month. Ford has also launched North America’s largest EV charging network.

“Climate change is an undeniable business risk if unaddressed and we must transition to a low-carbon economy now to avoid the worst impacts,” said Sarda. “’A List’ companies know sustainability presents an exciting race to the top, an opportunity to innovate and rethink business as usual, proving that environmental responsibility simply makes good business sense.”

Ford reduced its carbon dioxide emissions from manufacturing operations by 30 percent per vehicle produced in 2017. This was a goal Ford managed to reach 8 years ahead of schedule. Taking the momentum from this early win, Ford has recently announced a new global Carbon Reduction Strategy for manufacturing. This strategy focuses on renewable energy while focusing on low-emission sources and energy efficiency.
