U.N. Sustainable Development Goals
On September 25, 2015, countries adopted a set of 17 goals to end poverty, protect the planet, and ensure prosperity for all, as part of a new sustainable development agenda.
Ford is committed to doing its part to advance economic, social, environmental and governance challenges that exist in the world today.
We have pledged to highlight the contributions and alignment of our corporate sustainability vision with those SDG goals that most directly relate to our business, through our products and operations, and our efforts related to climate change, sustainable communities, clean water, and more.
This includes our ongoing focus on reducing carbon/GHG emissions; reducing water consumption; enhancing communities; and setting high standards for human rights performance.
We will continue to work with our stakeholders and coalitions in these efforts, communicating our journey to address the SDGs, and sharing our successes and challenges along the way.
