Environmental Management

Ford has an environmental Policy and environmental Directives that apply to our operations globally (see our Code of Conduct Handbook). All Ford manufacturing facilities and product development functions are certified to ISO 14001, the leading global standard for managing environmental issues. In addition, we have asked our preferred “Q1” suppliers of production parts to certify their facilities. These commitments place our most significant potential environmental impacts under one comprehensive environmental management system.

In this section, we report on the environmental management systems we use in manufacturing and product development, as well as with our supply chain, to ensure that environmental issues are addressed.
