You’re our customer but, in the global community, you’re also our neighbour. Being a good corporate citizen is an essential part of how we do business. Both globally and locally, we have an ongoing commitment to helping and supporting the communities we operate in, better understanding environmental issues and investing in our people.
We define corporate social responsibility as being willing to help others, being environmentally conscious and socially tolerant. With those guiding principles in mind, we’ve designed a special programme to promote tolerance and equal opportunities, and actively support social and environmental protection programmes.
Through our Ford Britain Trust, we provide grants to fund local education and other not-for-profit projects. We were also the first car manufacturer to obtain ISO 14040 certification, an international environmental standard, for all of our facilities worldwide.
As a result of our ongoing efforts Ford Motor Company has been recognised as one of the world's most ethical companies by Ethisphere Institute, a leading business think tank. Ford is one of only a 100 global companies - and the only automotive manufacturer - to be included in the list.
