Ford earns EPA award for conserving energy
Dearborn, Michigan – The Ford Motor Company has earned the Energy Star 2006 Partner of the Year award from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) for its successes in reducing fuel usage and greenhouse gas emissions.
Since 2000, Ford’s U.S. facilities have improved energy efficiency by 18 per cent and reduced CO2 emissions by more than 15 per cent. Actions leading to those reductions were among the reasons cited by the EPA in presenting the award. The most significant energy efficiency actions included installation of large-scale networked heating, ventilation and air conditioning systems, air compressor controls and energy-efficient production tooling.
