    “Ford is taking leadership of the EV revolution. We’re electrifying our most iconic and popular vehicles, like the F-150 Lightning, Mustang Mach-E and E-Transit. But our commitment to combatting climate change goes far beyond our exciting electric product lineup. We’re proud to be the first automaker to join the Better Climate Challenge and to continue our commitment to reducing the greenhouse gas emissions from our U.S. manufacturing facilities. We’re acting now to develop an ultra-efficient, closed-loop manufacturing system, creating jobs here in the United States. And we’re sharing what we learn to help other businesses and drive to a zero-emissions transportation future that’s good for people, good for business, and good for the planet,” said Ford Manufacturing and Labor Affairs Vice President John Savona.

    The DOE announced at UN Climate Change Conference of the Parties (COP26) that Ford was its inaugural partner and is actually the first automaker to join the effort.

    The Better Climate Challenge will see Ford commit to reducing portfolio-wide greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from manufacturing facilities in the US by 50 percent within the decade.

    As part of President Joe Biden's government-wide effort to meet the US’ global climate commitments, the DOE's Better Climate Challenge encourages organizations — such as Ford — to set ambitious GHG emissions reduction goals.
