EPA recognizes Ford Atlanta assembly plant’s environmental efforts
Dearborn, Michigan – The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has recognized the Ford Motor Company’s Atlanta Assembly Plant for exceeding regulatory requirements, working closely with the community and excelling in protecting the environment and public health, as part of the EPA’s Performance Track program.
Performance Track is a voluntary program designed to encourage pollution prevention at the source. The plant submitted its application in April 2005, and has committed to reducing volatile organic compound emissions by more than 24 tons, and water usage by nearly 14 million gallons. It is the first of Ford’s facilities to join the program.
