More and more, people are becoming concerned not only with the quality of their products, but also where products are coming from, leading to a movement in ethical consumption. Part of this movement has given birth to the list of companies bearing the title “World’s Most Ethical Company.” 2017 marks the eighth year in a row Ford has been recognized as a World’s Most Ethical Company due to the brand’s commitment to corporate responsibility.
This achievement is a big deal, because it’s the longest streak of any manufacturer in the auto industry. However, from monitoring company safety and human rights on the job to founding the Partnership for a Cleaner Environment to fostering long-term relationships with suppliers, Ford has gone the distance through an application of many ethical policies.
Bill Ford, the Executive Chairman of Ford Motor Company, expressed his gratitude for the recognition and explained, “Strong ethics and corporate citizenship are the foundation of our business philosophy, which demonstrates to our customers what we stand for as a company.”
By investing in both its employees and the communities surrounding factories and dealerships, Ford has certainly earned its place on the list as a World’s Most Ethical Company, striving for an image as a more responsible and involved force in the auto industry. We work hard to represent Ford Motor Company, and its ethical standards well here at Highway Ford!
