Ford Motor Company

Dearborn, Michigan

ENERGY STAR Partner of the Year - Sustained Excellence

Ford Motor Company, a global automotive industry leader based in the United States, manufactures or distributes automobiles across six continents. The company continues to expand its energy management program through innovative technology solutions, the replication of best practices, and effective non-production shutdowns. This is the third time Ford has been awarded ENERGY STAR Sustained Excellence recognition. Key accomplishments include:

  • Improving energy efficiency by 4.6% per vehicle produced, which extends its energy efficiency gains at U.S.-based facilities to 13.6% over its 2006 baseline. This is equivalent to the energy required to assemble more than 90,000 Ford Escape Hybrids.
  • Launching new energy management program elements in Asia Pacific and Africa based on the ENERGY STAR Guidelines for Energy Management. 
  • Completing a successful building consolidation program to improve the energy performance of targeted nonmanufacturing buildings.
  • Launching key projects in lighting and a smart grid energy storage system.
  • Completing a 3-year consolidation of Ford IT centers and equipment resulting in a reduction from 20 global data centers to two data centers and two small IT hubs.
  • Expanding the scope of its energy program through a Green Dealership Program designed to reduce the environmental impact of Ford dealerships. 
  • Continuing research on the efficiency of producing energy from wastes such as volatile organic chemicals and paint sludge.
