Dearborn, Mich. - Earth Day is a time to reflect on what society is doing to address climate change and energy security, and a reminder that preserving the earth is the responsibility of all who use it. As part of Ford Motor Company’s commitment to do its part, the company is dramatically improving the efficiency of its manufacturing operations worldwide and increasing the use of renewable or “green” energy sources.
Since 2000, Ford has reduced its global operational energy use by 30 percent (3 percent improvement from a year ago), CO2 emissions from our facilities by 39 percent (11 percent improvement from a year ago) and water use by 43 percent (21 percent improvement from a year ago). Ford improved energy efficiency in the U.S. by 4.5 percent, resulting in a savings of about $18 million.
Globally, renewable or "green" power supplies about 3 percent of Ford’s energy needs. Ford uses hydro-power, solar and wind power, landfill gas and waste gases, and other sources to supply some of its global energy needs.
