    “I am honored that Ford has been named to Time's list of the 100 Most Influential Companies. This is especially gratifying because it is not about any individual, but rather a recognition of our incredible employees who work tirelessly to leave the world a better place for our kids and grandkids. Through their hard work, innovation, and creativity, we are fundamentally changing the future of transportation and mobility, and building a cleaner future,” said Ford Executive Chairman Bill Ford.

    Other automotive brands that made the list include Chinese carmaker BYD and EV company Rivian.

    According to Time, “Cars, SUVs, pickups, and other light-duty trucks account for over half of all US transportation emissions, making electric vehicles (EVs) key to mitigating climate change. But it’s not enough to just offer EVs—people have to actually want them. Ford’s approach, under CEO Jim Farley: electrify some of its most popular models, like the F-Series, long America’s best-selling pickup. And it’s working — demand for the all-electric F-150 Lightning helped push Ford’s market value over US$100 billion for the first time in January.”

    Time added that to assemble the list, they solicit nominations across sectors including health care, entertainment, technology, and more from our global network of editors and correspondents, as well as from industry experts. Once the nominations are collected, Time evaluates each entry based on key factors, including relevance, impact, innovation, leadership, ambition, and success.

    The result is a diverse array of 100 businesses helping chart an essential path forward.
