Ford volunteers are the face of Ford in the community and proudly carry on the company's legacy of caring and community service.
The legacy, contributions and influence of Henry Ford will be celebrated throughout 2013, which marks the 150th anniversary of the birth of the company founder.
In our annual Sustainability Report, Ford announced it has reduced the amount of energy needed to manufacture each vehicle by 22 percent in the last six years. The company plans to reduce energy usage another 25 percent by 2016.
There are about 7 billion people in the world today and about 1 billion vehicles. By 2050, the population is expected to reach 9 billion globally.
Creating a better world is hard work. It takes heart, determination, sweat and teamwork. It takes the Ford Volunteer Corps. As part of that effort, more than 12,000 Ford employee, dealers and retirees came together on six continents for Ford Global Week of Caring. For the seventh straight year, volunteers picked up paint brushes and hammers, shovels and wheelbarrows to tackle community projects and make a world of difference for people in need. Employees at Ford answered the call to help, putting teams of Ford volunteers on the job in 29 countries from Europe and Asia to Africa and the Americas.
