Making a Positive Impact
Globally, we rely on thousands of suppliers for the materials, parts and services we need to make our products, so we’re just one part of a much bigger picture. Because the automotive supply chain is so complex, with up to 10 tiers of suppliers and sub-suppliers between manufacturers like Ford and the original source of raw materials, it has the potential to make a big impact on the world around us.
With stakeholders and consumers expecting us to be ever-more sustainable, we foster long-term relationships to help our suppliers meet our standards, ensure continuity of supply, mitigate potential risks and improve their performance.
Through this engagement, we go further to find, share and replicate the best ideas so that we reduce our combined environmental footprint, helping our suppliers “keep pace” with our own efforts to reduce carbon emissions, conserve water and energy, and cut down on waste.
