BRIGHTON, Mich - Ford Motor Company has released their 15th annual Sustainability Report today, underlining their commitment to environmentally responsible manufacturing practices and the positive outcome that they have seen thus far. Ford's 15th Annual Sustainability Report Spotlights Future Water Conservation Initiatives for the company's global facilities and their suppliers. Ford Motor Company believes that clean, affordable drinking water and access to sanitation is a basic human right. So, back in 2009 Ford Motor Company set a goal to reduce per vehicle water use by 30 percent globally and guess what? They met that goal two years ahead of schedule. Ford cut global water use by 61 percent, equating to 10 billion gallons or 1 billion five-minute-long showers, between 2000 and 2013.
Ford's 15th Annual Sustainability Report Spotlights Future Water Conservation Initiatives and with the current progress of the company's largest global expansion in more than 50 years, Ford is working hard to continue to improve their manufacturing processes. As Ford continues to expand, it will soon be working in regions with water scarcity, eventually making water a costly item. From a business point of view, it is important to take these constraints into account and immediately take action. Ford is looking to cut water use by another 2 percent this year and will also be setting some new long-term conservation goals. Ford will be asking high water-use suppliers and water-stressed regions to voluntarily report water their consumption. From there, Ford and the suppliers will work together to make reductions and hopefully encourage other suppliers around the global to take similar action towards water conservation.
