Ford Motor Company released its 18th annual Sustainability Report, including a short film that details environmental progress at its operations around the world and a commitment to further enhance sustainability actions in the future.

Asia’s growth story has lifted hundreds of millions from poverty and created tens of millions of new jobs. However, it has come at a price – diverse environmental challenges now confront the region. Now as governments, communities and individuals rise to meet these challenges, this new report details how Ford is leveraging key learnings from its leading environmental practices around the world to its operations in Asia Pacific.

“One of the key reasons for this is that they benefit from all that we’ve learned over our more than 100 years of Ford manufacturing history,” said Andy Hobbs, global director of Ford’s Environmental Quality Office. “Many of our plants in Asia Pacific are less than a decade old, so have allowed us to apply everything we know about sustainability from other operations around the world.”
