The Road to Better is Ford’s strategy to build a better world. Where every person is free to move and pursue their dreams. It’s what drives us forwards since we started our journey in 1903.

Our scale and resources put us in a strong position to drive change for better - better for our people, better for our planet and better for progress. Targeting climate change action while exploring more sustainable manufacturing practices and taking responsibility for our environmental and social impact. Our purpose is bigger than just building great vehicles. 


Sustainability is what drives our business today, and we’ve got ambitious plans for tomorrow. From cleaner transportation and manufacturing, and how materials are sourced and produced, to improving human rights, and revitalising communities. Responsible, transparent and sustainable supply chains are essential for a successful switch towards all electric vehicles.

We build iconic cars, and we build them right. In 2023 we’re electrifying more models and digitalising our ecosystem of services, to ensure we consider sustainable practices in everything we do.

We can make progress when we work together and we know we can’t do this alone. We are creating an environment that we’re all in together – even launching a bold initiative called Park The Car to help reduce the number of car journeys taken every day.

Building a safer, healthier future requires more than just electric vehicles – in fact sometimes, it requires no vehicle at all. So, we're encouraging you to join us in giving up the car for a walk or cycle on shorter journeys. Driving responsibly is no longer just about safety, it’s also about caring for our environment and our health.

Get involved


We are collaboration driven, addressing human and environmental responsibility together with our partners. Ford is part of Catena-X, a network set up to establish data standards for the automotive value chain. We launched M2030 in 2016 to 2022 to provide toolkits to our suppliers, to help them implement environmental best practices. We joined the Drive Sustainability partnership that aims to embed sustainable practices throughout the entire automotive supply chain and we were the first American automaker to join the Initiative for Responsible Mining Assurance, which works to advance more sustainable social and environmental practices in mining.

School Community


We’re putting our focus on the communities we work and live in. We’ve built a vast network of non-profit organisations, community groups, and other businesses in over 50 countries, investing in our people and committing millions in charitable donations via our global philanthropic arm, the Ford Fund. We also launched CV in the City, our response to a Ford Pro report in collaboration with Reuters, aimed at combating the amount of congestion and pollution caused by the urban delivery boom in Europe.


We’re proudly the first American automaker to align our operation with the Paris Climate Agreement. Making a powerful statement to the rest of the automotive industry and making an ongoing commitment to limit our impact on global warming.
