Protecting Human Rights
Our Code of Human Rights, Basic Working Conditions and Corporate Responsibility applies to our own operations as well as to our $100 billion supply chain.
We’re working with our suppliers to reduce their environmental footprints and better understand environmental impacts throughout the automotive supply chain.
When tin, tungsten, tantalum and gold are in our products, Ford seeks to use only those from conflict-free sources.
Since 1978, Ford’s Supplier Diversity Development program has been supporting minority- and women-owned businesses and creating business opportunities for diverse suppliers.
In 2014, 280 suppliers in six high-priority countries were trained on corporate social responsibility.
We have sourced $80 billion in purchases from minority-, women- and veteran-owned businesses since 1978.
