Ford Around the World

Ford Asia Pacific and Africa


Our employees are the driving force behind our success. Our recent financial recovery can be attributed in large part to the dedication and strong performance of our workforce. Our employees are also critical in our efforts to contribute to our communities.

Through initiatives like the Global Week of Caring, the annual Conservation and Environmental Grants China (CEGC) awards, and the Ford Driving Skills for Life (FDSFL) program, which teaches drivers about fuel efficiency as well as safety, Ford has made a positive impact on communities and environmental issues throughout the APA region.

Since Ford launched the CEGC program in 2000, for example, we have awarded more than $1.9 million (RMB12.6 million) in grants to hundreds of grassroots organizations and individuals to support environmental projects throughout China. Winners in 2011 included a photographer who has documented Beijing’s growing landfill sites and a project to protect endangered fish in the Yangtze River.
