In 2022, Ford and ford Fund invested more than $64.3 million in charitable contributions to help strengthen communities and support on the Road to Better.

Supply Chain

Initiated supply chain mapping and auditing in 2021 to understand the sources of the cobalt, nickel and lithium used in our EVs. We recognise that some of the EV components include minerals with inherent risk due to extraction processes and country locations. We are supporting our suppliers, ensuring they set and meet science-based targets to reduce their carbon footprint.

Park the Car

Driving responsibly is no longer just about safety. It's also about caring for our environment and our health - and walking or cycling once a day, active travel, can bring about significant change. For short journeys, Park the Car.

Ford is committed to respecting human rights, including the right to clean air and clean water. across our entire business.

Joined a global coalition to curb global warming by working toward making sales of all new cars and vans zero-emissions by 2040 globally, and no later than 2035 in leading markets.

First Movers Coalition

Joined the First Movers Coalition, a global initiative led by the World Economic Forum and the U.S. Government, to harness purchasing power and supply chains to create early markets for innovative clean energy technologies.
