It’s important to realize, Ford has always focused on being a good corporate citizen. Because of this, Ford Motor Company was named one of the World’s Most Ethical Companies. This is the eighth straight year – the longest streak for any auto manufacturer.
Ford’s commitment to ethics is evident in programs aimed at monitoring human rights and safe working conditions as well as sourcing conflict-free minerals. There are also programs such as the Partnership for a Cleaner Environment. This is aimed at encouraging sustainability through Ford’s supply chain.
Ford also fosters long-term relationships with suppliers through active engagement. This includes sharing best practices, as well as providing training and evaluations to ensure suppliers meet both legal requirements and Ford standards.
“Strong ethics and corporate citizenship are the foundation of our business philosophy, which demonstrates to our customers what we stand for as a company,” said Bill Ford, Ford Motor Company Executive Chairman. “This honor is a reflection of Ford’s core values, and it shows that our employees are continuing to make the right decisions every day for all of our stakeholders.”
