Cars are necessary for day to day life. Unless public transportation is an option, it’s the only way to get from point A to point B. However, these cars can also cause a great deal of environmental harm. For that very reason, Ford dealers in Utah and across the country are working to decrease their part in the damage.
One of the main complaints environmentalists have about cars is their incessant greenhouse gas emissions and contribution to global warming. Ford has developed a science-based strategy in order to minimize their products’ emissions of greenhouse gases into the air.
Between 2007 and 2013, Ford reduced the CO2 emissions from its European car fleet by 18 percent. Dealers also strive to reduce environmental impact throughout the process of manufacturing cars. In 2013, Ford reduced CO2 emissions for each vehicle it produced by 9 percent.
However, it doesn’t just end there. Ford follows their pledge to help the environment all the way through to the end of a car’s life. Ford’s achieved this by reducing the waste sent to landfills from vehicles in Utah and around the world by 14 percent for each vehicle it produced in 2013. Fortunately, since then, things haven’t changed; they’ve only improved.
Although some extreme green enthusiasts may still be against cars and the manufacturing thereof, Ford realizes that these mechanisms are a part of most people’s daily lives. Ford does its best to contribute in whatever way it can, minimizing its effects on the environment.
