Putting People First
People drive our success: our skilled employees, our dedicated dealers, suppliers and partners, our local communities and our valued customers. They are front and center of everything we do to drive human progress.
The heart of Ford’s global community work is making people’s lives better. Our employees are the backbone of this work, and their values in giving back and caring for others drive this mission. Supporting the communities where we live and work through mentorship, service and partnership programs is what makes Ford a special family company.”Mary Culler, President, Ford Fund

Protecting Our Planet
We are making a positive contribution to the world around us by reducing the emissions associated with the use of our vehicles, responsibly managing our operations and encouraging best practices among our suppliers.
We believe that making great vehicles and maintaining a strong business don’t have to be at the cost of protecting our planet. These priorities are dependent on each other and aren’t mutually exclusive. To help us achieve our aspirations, we have set out some ambitious goals that will move us toward a carbon-neutral future.”Bob Holycross Vice President, Chief Sustainability, Environment and Safety Officer
Creating Tomorrow, Together
We believe that freedom of movement drives human progress. So, we’re creating smart vehicles in a smart world to solve today’s – and tomorrow’s – mobility challenges.
I’m excited by the role that Ford can play in using innovative, disruptive technology to make the world better. Connectivity, automation, electrification, data sharing – these things are changing the business of mobility, and making us rethink our value add as a company.”Hau Thai-Tang Chief Product Development and Purchasing Officer
Responding to COVID-19
Throughout our history, Ford has always answered the call for help when needed and that legacy has continued during the COVID-19 outbreak. Our hearts go out to everyone affected by the coronavirus crisis.
We moved quickly to keep our people safe, by closing production sites around the world, using technology to enable 115,000 employees to continue their work remotely, and implementing programs to support colleagues’ physical, mental and emotional health.
We have also been using our design expertise, manufacturing capacity and vehicle parts to help produce vital ventilators and respirators, and personal protective equipment such as face masks, face shields and medical gowns.
Our return-to-work playbook for China, Europe and the United States, with amended safety requirements and restructured roles, is being extended to other regions as we restart our operations more widely.
This is one of the greatest crises to threaten humanity in my lifetime. In times of crisis, it is incumbent upon every citizen to do what they can, whether it’s to stay at home and socially isolate or leverage their skills in different ways and help.”Adrian Price Director, Global Core Engineering – Vehicle Operations Manufacturing
