ESG Overview

The future of Ford centers on a purpose bigger than building vehicles. We are helping to build a better world, where every person is free to move and pursue their dreams.

A world that is fully electric. A world that is more equitable, inclusive, and sustainable. And in doing so, we are putting people, the planet, and our shared prosperity first.

At Ford, we are committed to making progress on the issues that matter in the environmental, social, and governance (ESG) areas. It is a critical part of our Ford+ plan for growth and value creation as we transform our business for a new era of electric and connected vehicles, setting the pathway for our continued success, for generations to come.

Sustainable Financing Framework

Ford’s Sustainable Financing Framework – the first fully integrated framework of its kind covering both an automotive OEM and its captive finance company – covers funding of environmental and social projects through various instruments including unsecured debt and securitization transactions. It guides how projects are evaluated, selected, managed, and reported, and achieved the highest-possible ‘Advanced’ rating from second party opinion provider, Vigeo Eiris. Net proceeds raised can be invested in four different areas: clean transportation, clean manufacturing, making lives better, and community revitalization.
