Lush Landscape | Ford Wins 2020 WEC Gold Medal Award for Sustainability | Orlando, FL

The World Environmental Center awarded the Ford Motor Company with the 2020 Gold Medal for International Corporate Achievement in Sustainable Development. With this achievement that recognizes Ford’s commitment to sustainability and addressing environmental issues, Ford becomes the first automaker to receive the WEC Gold Medal in the 36 years it’s existed.

Michigan congresswoman Debbie Dingell presented WEC’s Gold Medal to Ford during a virtual ceremony on December 15. Ford CEO Jim Farley and Chief Sustainability, Environment, and Safety Officer Bob Hollycross accepted the award that recognized Ford’s efforts to reduce its carbon footprint.

In his pre-recorded acceptance speech, Farley highlighted ways that Ford has taken the lead in environmental areas, such as meeting California’s emissions standards and keeping within the framework of the Paris Climate Agreement. Ford also revealed its plans to be carbon neutral by 2050 in its annual Sustainability Report released in the spring. The eco-friendly automaker plans to eliminate the use of single-use plastics and move manufacturing to 100 percent renewable energy by 2035.

The WEC Gold Medal is not the first green medal Ford has received. The automaker was recently recognized by CDP for its commitment to water conservation and fighting climate change, earning its sixth straight spot on the A-List for water security and second straight A-List honor for climate change.
