Ford Takes Home 2020 WEC Gold Medal for Sustainability Efforts

Ford recently won the WEC Gold Medal for International Corporate Achievement in Sustainable Development. Ford is the first automaker ever to earn this honor from the World Environmental Center.

Ford received this award for its commitment to being more eco-friendly and addressing climate change. The automaker has stuck to California’s emissions standards and the measures outlined in the Paris Climate Agreement.

In its most recent Sustainability Report, Ford announced additional plans to go green in the future. It intends to be carbon neutral by 2050, and it hopes to achieve this goal by using 100 percent renewable energy in manufacturing by 2035 and ceasing to utilize single-use plastics sometime in the next decade.

“When it comes to existential threats like climate change, we need companies like Ford who aren’t afraid to lead and do what’s right,” said Michigan congresswoman Debbie Dingell. “We need corporations that see sustainability not just as a moral imperative but an economic opportunity to shape our future.”

On top of winning the prestigious 2020 WEC Gold Medal, Ford also made the CDP’s A-List for climate change and A-List for water security. All of these honors make it clear that Ford is working hard to help the environment.
