Ford Motor Company Ranked Ninth Best Corporate Citizen Of 2022

Ford Motor Company has earned its fair share of praise for being a good corporate citizen in recent months, including landing on the 2022 JUST 100 list for how it handles current issues, being recognized by Disability:IN as one of the best places to work for those with disabilities, receiving high marks on the Rainbow PUSH Coalition’s 2020 Automotive Diversity Scorecard, landing a spot on Just Capital‘s 2022 Industry Leader for Environmental Efforts list, and having its sustainable financing framework recognized by the Climate Bonds Initiative. Now, Ford Motor Company continues to add to its list of accolades after it ranked ninth on 3BL Media’s 2022 Best Corporate Citizen list, as well securing a spot as the top automaker, first in the human rights category, and second in the environmental category.

The 100 Best Corporate Citizens takes into account 155 different factors across eight “pillars” – climate change, employee relations, environment, finance, governance, human rights, stakeholders and society, and environmental, social, and governance (ESG) performance. 3BL analyzes the 1,000 largest public U.S. companies each year and recognizes the very best of the best in that regard.

“Ford’s leadership on environmental, social, and governance (ESG) issues really came through, particularly in our more transparent and robust reporting,” said Mary Wroten, director of global sustainability and ESG. “More than anything else, though, this recognition reflects the dedication of our teams around the globe who are fulfilling our purpose in actions every day.”

“Achieving the transformational targets in the Paris Agreement and UN Sustainable Development Goals in this decisive decade requires all companies to truly embed ESG issues into the core of their business,” said Dave Armon, CEO of 3BL Media. “The 100 Best Corporate Citizens of 2022 are answering the call by demonstrating the societal and bottom-line value of leadership and transparency around ESG topics. They are setting ambitious goals, outlining robust strategies for achieving them, disclosing data to measure progress, and accounting for all stakeholders in business decisions.”

Brett's lost track of all the Fords he's owned over the years and how much he's spent modifying them, but his current money pits include an S550 Mustang and 13th gen F-150.

    All fine and good but how about focusing on the core business strategy instead–producing competitive electric, hybrid, and ICE vehicles that aren’t subject to a steady stream of safety/quality recalls? Of Lincoln’s four current products, the Navigator and Corsair have been in the recall headlines these past two weeks and the Aviator has had its share of similar issues. Only the Nautilus has avoided this plague, yet it’s the model being discontinued after 2023.

      Ford’s new CEO,Jim Farley, is destroying Ford. We and some of our friends pulled all investments out of Ford (401K, etc). We suggest everyone do the same.

    When you have a company that serves the Government instead of their customers then you get a useless award like this. Get rid of the new CEO and focus on practicality and what your customers want, not what the Government wants.
