Blueprint for Sustainability 2012/13
At Ford, we continue to Go Further on our sustainability journey. This report describes our progress in six categories of material issues.
2012 was among our most profitable years ever in North America. We are much stronger financially than we were five years ago, having transformed ourselves from the inside out.
We are working to minimize the environmental impacts of our vehicles and operations and contribute to climate stabilization. In 2012, we continued to implement strategies to meet our goals.
We have a comprehensive, risk-based water strategy. We’re aiming to cut per-vehicle water use by 30 percent globally from 2009 to 2015.
We remain among the global leaders in vehicle safety. We have developed advanced safety and driver assist technologies and are making them available across a wide range of vehicles.
Our suppliers are critical allies in helping us meet our sustainability goals. We work with our own suppliers and across the automotive supply chain to advance the protection of human rights and the environment.
A skilled and motivated workforce is the essence of Ford. Our employees deliver on our vision of building vehicles with the very best in quality, safety, fuel efficiency and design.
We are offering a range of electrified vehicles to reduce CO2 emissions, deliver leading fuel economy and meet diverse customers’ transportation needs.
“As we expand and realign globally and introduce new products, we are contributing solutions to economic development, energy security and environmental sustainability.”
