In its 21st annual Sustainability Report, Ford announced plans to become entirely carbon neutral by 2050. To do so, Ford will focus its efforts on its facilities, supply base, and vehicle use, which currently create about 95 percent of its emissions today.
The Changes Ford Plans To Make
Ford is developing goals aligned with the Science Based Targets initiative, which divides emissions into three groups. Scope 1 emissions stem from sources that Ford controls or owns. Scope 2 emissions include indirect emissions that cooling, heating and electricity consumption generates. Lastly, Scope 3 emissions are made by the Ford supply base and vehicles.
In Accordance to the Paris Climate Agreement
The automaker intends to act in accordance with the Paris Climate Agreement. As such, Ford is adhering to California’s emissions standards rather than the federal standards. Through 2022, Ford is investing an astounding $11.5 billion in its all-new electric vehicles, which is why the Mustang Mach-E and the all-electric Transit are hitting the market.
In addition to reaching full carbon neutrality by 2050, Ford has reiterated its goal originally declared in the 2019 Ford Sustainability Report to stop using single-use plastics by 2030. Ford manufacturing plants will also utilize renewable energy by 2035.
