Human Rights and Working Conditions
Ford is committed to respecting human rights everywhere we operate. Our human rights and working conditions program is an integral part of our efforts to develop a more sustainable and ethical supply chain.
Our Approach to Human Rights
We aim to ensure that everything we make – or that others make for us – is consistent with local law and our own commitment to protecting human rights, as embodied in our Policy Letter 24, our Code of Human Rights, Basic Working Conditions and Corporate Responsibility.
This commitment requires a robust approach to safeguarding against human rights abuses in our supply chain, as detailed on the following pages. This approach includes:
Analyzing the risks related to human rights and working conditions associated with our supply base on a regular basis
Conducting training and working to build our suppliers’ capability
Auditing our Tier 1 suppliers in high-priority locations to ensure their continued compliance with legal requirements and Ford’s standards
Collaborating with others in multi-stakeholder initiatives and organizations to drive positive change throughout the automotive industry
Aiming to “Go Further” through proactive sustainability actions that enhance our program’s effectiveness
