Ford yesterday announced their participation in the Electronic Industry Citizenship Coalition – a non-profit group comprising some of the world’s leading electronics companies, with a mission to promote socially-responsible business practices in all areas.

Ford Motor Company is the first global automaker to join the group.

Said Ford VP of Global Purchasing Hau Thai-Tang: “At Ford, we have a commitment to conducting business responsibly in an ethical and transparent manner. Working with the Electronic Industry Citizenship Coalition and other industry leaders enables us to further improve the way we work together with our suppliers to address sustainability-related issues such as human rights, working conditions and environmental responsibility.”

About 15 percent of Ford’s parts suppliers are already members of the EICC. To achieve full membership status, Ford must identify any high-risk facilities belonging to either the automaker or one of its many suppliers, and audit at least 25 percent of those. In collaboration with the coalition, Ford will contribute to progressing labor and environmental conditions by implementing its practices.

“At the end of the day, this is not about industry competition – it’s about doing the right thing,” said Ford VP of Sustainability, Environment and Engineering Kim Pittel. “By joining the coalition, we will have support from the world’s most respected, sustainable companies to ensure responsible business practices and ethical standards throughout our supply chain.”
