As manufacturing continues to become greener, Ford Motor Company is going further to shrink its environmental footprint by sharing more sustainability practices with its suppliers.
The Partnership for A Cleaner Environment (PACE) is part of Ford’s commitment to creating a better world. While many sustainability practices already have been implemented at the company’s manufacturing sites, Ford has expanded the program now to include tools that help suppliers reduce carbon-dioxide emissions and waste, as well as help make water and energy consumption more efficient.
Last year, a second select group of suppliers were invited to join the voluntary program, bringing the number of participating companies to more than 40 in two years. PACE now has the potential to impact nearly 1,100 supplier sites in more than 40 countries.
With programs like PACE, Ethisphere Institute named Ford to its list of the World’s Most Ethical Companies for the eighth year in a row.
