Ford Motor Company has become the first automaker to join the Water Disclosure Project. This is part of Ford’s broader global sustainability program to reduce its environmental footprint.
The initiative extends the disclosure and reporting framework of its sponsor – the Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP) – to managing the world’s shrinking water resources. The Water Disclosure Project will serve as a central clearing house for Ford and other participating companies to report on water usage, water risks and water management plans of company operations and their supply chains.
“Water scarcity is quickly becoming a critical global issue with significant social and environmental implications and all of us need to be part of the solution,” said Sue Cischke, Ford group vice president, Sustainability, Environment and Safety Engineering. “For the past decade, Ford has made it a priority to conserve water. Joining the Water Disclosure Project is another important step in our commitment to this issue.”
