Ford Makes Green Steel Commitment

5/26/2022 - Ford Motor Co. has pledged that at least 10% of the steel and aluminum it buys will be near-zero carbon steel and aluminum by 2030, the company has said. 

The promise comes as part of the company’s entrance to the First Movers Coalition, a “global initiative to harness purchasing power and supply chains to create early markets for innovative clean energy technologies,” Ford said. 

“Ford has a strong track record of firsts in automotive sustainability, from being the only full-line American automaker to stand with California in support of stronger vehicle emissions standards to being the first automaker to join the Department of Energy’s Better Climate Challenge and commit to reducing our manufacturing emissions earlier this year,” said Chris Smith, Ford’s chief government affairs officer.

“And now as part of the First Movers Coalition, we’re targeting the environmental impact of our supply chain by investing in green steel and aluminum,” he added.
