Ford Continues to be Among World's Most Ethical Companies


With its focus on being a good corporate citizen, Ford Motor Company has been named one of the World’s Most Ethical Companies for the eighth straight year, the longest streak for any auto manufacturer.

Ford’s commitment to ethics is evident in programs aimed at monitoring human rights and safe working conditions, sourcing conflict-free minerals, to programs such as the Partnership for a Cleaner Environment, which is aimed at encouraging sustainability through Ford’s supply chain.
Ford also fosters long-term relationships with suppliers through active engagement, which includes sharing best practices, as well as providing training and evaluations to ensure suppliers meet both legal requirements and Ford standards.

“Strong ethics and corporate citizenship are the foundation of our business philosophy, which demonstrates to our customers what we stand for as a company,” said Bill Ford, Ford Motor Company Executive Chairman. “This honor is a reflection of Ford’s core values, and it shows that our employees are continuing to make the right decisions every day for all of our stakeholders.”

Ethisphere’s list of the World’s Most Ethical Companies acknowledges and honors companies that recognize they have a role in society to influence or drive a positive change. These companies consider their employees, investors, customers and other key stakeholders when taking action, while their values and culture align with the decisions they make every day.

“Companies we’ve honored as World’s Most Ethical take a novel response to the shift in societal expectations, constant redefinition of laws and regulations, and the geo-political climate,” said Timothy Erblich, Ethisphere’s Chief Executive Officer. “We’ve seen how Ford responds to these challenges, while still investing in communities where they reside and embracing ethical strategies across the globe, as a sustainable business advantage.”

For its efforts, Ford has been recognized by several third-party organizations, including:
  • 2017: World’s Most Admired Company by Fortune
  • 2016: The Just 100: America’s Best Corporate Citizens by Forbes
  • 2016: America’s Best Employer by Forbes
  • 2016: Top Green Company by Newsweek
  • 2016: World’s Most Attractive Employer for Engineering and IT by Universum
  • 2016: 100 percent on the Human Rights Campaign’s Corporate Equality Index. 
In the Philippines, Ford recently received recognition for two of its corporate social responsibility programs during the ‘Driven to Serve’ Awards of the Society of Philippine Motoring Journalists, which aims to commend the best CSR initiatives in the local automotive industry. Ford Philippines received the Platinum award in the Road Safety category for its Driving Skills for Life program, and a Silver Award in the Community Development category for its Operation Better world initiative.

  2. Did this take into account the PH dealers? I had a difficult time getting a car from Ford. Ford BGC was nothing more than failed promises. Ford Bacolod took half a year to provide the registration. Our car has been on the streets half a year without registration! The whole time they were lying to our face telling us that it's on process only to find out later that they haven't even submitted the application.
