The Blue Oval is going green!

Not only is Ford Motor Company developing all-electric vehicles, but they’re also working toward sustainability in other aspects of the business. Their efforts earned them a spot on Just Capital’s 2022 Industry Leader for Environmental Efforts list.

The list comprises 32 companies leading their industries in environmental performance. Ford finished first on the list in the automotive and parts category, and ranked no. 20 overall. The Ford dealership near you is reaping the benefits of their hard work – and you can see how when you visit Zeck Ford OKC in Purcell.

Ford’s Sustainability Efforts Positively Affect New Car Production

In recent years, Ford Motor Company launched a sustainable financing framework to fund future projects – which bodes well for car-buyers looking for top tech in their vehicles. Ford also released an integrated sustainability and financial report last year and set a goal to cut greenhouse gas emissions at U.S. factories in half by 2030.

Just Capital also shared that Ford uses the highest percentage of renewable energy – 10 percent of its total electricity use – within the industry and recycles 90 percent of the waste it generates.

The Ford assembly plant in Louisville, Kentucky, earned a Pollution Prevention Award from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) for reusing treated wastewater in the paint pretreatment process. The decision curbed more than 5 million gallons of city water use. Ford also is working with Hewlett-Packard to use waste from the 3-D printing process for automotive parts.

The Ford Pacheco assembly plant in Argentina, South America, recycled 93 percent of its waste in 2020, and then created a 6,727 square-foot forest to benefit the environment.
