Manufacturing Plants Notices of Violation

Ford received four notices of violation (NOV) from government agencies in 2011. Two of the NOVs received were in the U.S., one was in Canada, and one was in Taiwan. The issuance of an NOV is an allegation of noncompliance with anything from a minor paperwork requirement to a permit limit, and does not mean that the Company was in noncompliance or received a penalty.

Offsite Spills

In 2011, no offsite spills occurred at Ford manufacturing facilities.

Fines and Penalties Paid

In 2011, Ford paid $330 in fines and penalties globally pertaining to environmental matters in our facilities.
