As Ford Goes Green, Fort Wayne Drivers Profit

Ford Focus available near Fort Wayne

Innovation is at Ford’s core, with no signs of stopping. That’s why in the midst of mounting concerns over the impact manufacturing has on the environment, Ford has taken a leap forward to make their Research & Engineering Center landfill-free. Our Fort Wayne area Ford dealer is thrilled to offer the products of a company dedicated to going green.

Cleaning Up From the Beginning…

Since 2010, Ford has set out on a mission: to reduce global waste-to-landfill by 40% per vehicle produced from 2011 to 2016. Starting with their 12,000-employee Research & Engineering Center in Dearborn, Michigan, Ford worked to identify the major waste sources on the campus and pare them down. It was a challenge to find new ways to dispose of waste without adding extra cost, but with the proper recycling training and the help of waste managers and engineers, the campus is now totally landfill-free, diverting 230,000 pounds of waste annually.

The Research & Engineering Center joins 30 other Ford facilities that have also achieved landfill-free status. Canadian and Mexican manufacturing plants no longer send any waste to landfills. What this has managed to accomplish is a staggering 50% reduction in per-vehicle global waste. Exceeding expectations is what Ford does best. Their environmental commitment is no different… which is why the company takes the top spot for Interbrand’s 2014 list of 50 Best Global Green Brands.

Ford Fusion with Smartgauge EcoGuide available near Fort Wayne

…to the End

Eco-conscious drivers around Fort Wayne would benefit greatly from taking a look through Ford’s efficient, environmentally friendly fleet. Hybrid cars such as the C-Max, the Fusion, and the Focus lead the way in providing drivers with environmentally sound vehicles without compromising comfort or convenience features. The C-Max and Fusion Energi models are plug-in electric vehicles that run on lithium-ion batteries. If a quiet ride is your top priority, it can’t get much quieter than an electric car.

When you’re in the market for a new vehicle, support a company with the right priorities. Ford is a heavy hitter when it comes to making automotive progress in the environment. If you’re interested in taking a look at our stylish and dependable eco-friendly vehicles, visit our dealership and try a test drive!
