Ford announces plans to become carbon neutral by 2050: Ford Motor Company, the world’s fifth-largest automaker, is taking ownership of its carbon emissions.
In the company’s now-published Sustainability Report, Ford unveiled completely carbon-neutral plans within 30 years. In addition, it hopes to supply all of its production plants with green energy at the time.
Ford’s plan to go green is twofold. By 2035, it intends to operate all industries in domestically renewable energy. It wants to achieve full carbon neutrality by 2050.
According to the new report, Ford will focus on vehicle use, its distribution base, and the company’s facilities in achieving this.
Carbon neutrality “comes only from naturally occurring sources – such as hydroelectricity, geothermal, wind or solar.”
Bob Holycross, the company’s vice president, added, “We can build and build better vehicles, maintain a strong business, and protect our planet at the same time.” While he acknowledges that “we don’t have all the answers yet,” Holycross considers Ford to be “determined” to go there with global and local partners and partners.
Investing in the future
The US automaker also announced plans to invest more than $11 billion in zero-emission technology. These innovations will be featured in the upcoming Mustang Mach-E and Transit commercial van, as well as the full electric F-150 pickup.
Ford is already receiving praise from some of the world’s leading green technology advocacy groups. Mindy Lubber, CEO of Sustainable Nonprofit Reform, said in a statement, “We congratulate Ford on its commitment to being carbon neutral by 2050.”
He pointed out that Ford “recognizes the urgency of addressing climate change, and that every company must take action and commit to science-based goals within their global enterprises.”
