With the debut of its Partnership for A Cleaner Environment (PACE), Ford Motor Company is reinforcing its long-lasting commitment to ethical practices and sustainability.
The PACE program serves to share Ford's pioneering sustainability practices with its global chain of suppliers. More specifically, the program's tools include assets to help suppliers increase their efficiency of water and energy consumption, as well as cut down on waste and carbon dioxide emissions. Learn more about Ford's sustainability initiatives in the video below:
Through the program, suppliers are able to better track and achieve their goals for sustainability - as of now, participating suppliers are already slated to conserve 550 million gallons of water over the next five years! On top of that, research collected in 2016 indicates that carbon emissions from participating PACE suppliers may be reduced by approximately 500,000 metric tons globally over the same time span.
“As a company, it’s important that we make quality products and minimize the impact on the environment by doing things the right way,” Mary Wroten, the senior manager of Ford Supply Chain Sustainability, said.
