Ford is reducing the environmental footprint of its supply chain with an enhanced Partnership for A Cleaner Environment (PACE) program that has grown to more than 40 suppliers in 40 countries.
Ford aims to shrink its environmental footprint by sharing leading sustainability practices with its suppliers around the globe. The company is providing suppliers with a PACE toolkit, complete with more than 350 leading practices across four categories: Energy, Water, Air emissions and Waste.
The Partnership for A Cleaner Environment (PACE) is part of Ford’s commitment to creating a better world, and has been expanded to include tools that help suppliers reduce carbon-dioxide emissions and waste, as well as help make water and energy consumption more efficient.
PACE now has the potential to impact nearly 1,100 supplier sites in more than 40 countries.
“As a company, it’s important that we make quality products and minimize the impact on the environment by doing things the right way,” said Mary Wroten, Senior Manager of Ford Supply Chain Sustainability. “Having suppliers that want to share that responsibility shows we can work together to reduce our collective environmental footprint, while still continuing to deliver great products.”
