Ford issues report on implications of climate change
Dearborn, Michigan – In an industry first, Ford Motor Company has issued a report addressing the business implications of climate change, carbon dioxide emissions and global energy concerns.
“I am proud to say that Ford Motor Company is one of the first companies to have open discussions about climate change,” said Bill Ford, chairman and CEO. “We see climate change as a business issue as well as an environmental issue and we’re accelerating our efforts to find solutions. Addressing this issue will require collaborative action across all sectors of our society and I’m committing Ford Motor Company to do its part.”
The report addresses how concerns about emissions of greenhouse gases, including CO2, are linked to other factors affecting the business; the steps the company is taking to manage the risks and capture opportunities associated with climate change; and the market, policy, social and technological enablers required to achieve significant changes in the industry’s carbon footprint.
