Ford Motor Company and Manufacture 2030 announced today a strategic partnership to help Ford’s suppliers meet their carbon reduction targets toward Ford’s goal of reaching carbon neutrality no later than 2050 globally, and by 2035 in Europe.

“Achieving carbon neutrality for Ford is an important corporate goal and integral to our purpose to help build a better world,” said Jonathan Jennings, Ford Global Vice President, Supply Chain. “It is becoming a strong demand from our customers, shareholders and investors, and the supply chain is essential in achieving this goal. Hitting our targets will require we cut emissions across our entire value chain, particularly from purchased energy, goods and services. M2030 is a key program for Ford to help us all in not only reporting emissions but in forming realistic action plans and glidepaths to achieving our goals.”

In the first phase of the partnership with M2030, Ford is offering the voluntary platform to its more than 5,000 Tier 1 global supplier sites covering more than 66 countries, including suppliers who have yet to establish science-based carbon reduction targets. M2030’s platform can help suppliers identify which actions to take to measure, manage and reduce carbon emissions and reduce costs as they build their carbon neutrality plans.
