Ford Gets Energy Star Award
April 6, 2008
For the third consecutive year, Ford Motor Company's actions to reduce the amount of energy used to manufacture vehicles and support its American operations have earned it the coveted Energy Star Award from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.

In 2007, the blue-oval automaker improved energy efficiency in the U.S. by 4.5 percent. In fact, dating back to 2000, the improvement has nearly reached 30 percent.

This recognition by the EPA highlights Ford's intelligent use of resources. Last year alone, the company managed to save approximately $18 million. And since the start of the new millennium, total savings are equivalent to the energy used to power 260,000 homes for a full year.

One effort responsible for this reduction is a project to improve lighting systems - controls, fixtures, lamps and ballasts - in 26 million square feet of office, industrial and warehouse facilities. A combination of high-efficiency fluorescent lights and motion sensors has improved lighting efficiency by 50 percent in parts distribution centers alone.

Ford also shared its industry-leading advanced paint formulation and application technologies that significantly reduce energy consumption in paint shops while improving quality.
