While the idea of turning to an automaker—maybe most famous for pickup trucks and muscle cars—for sustainability initiatives might seem odd to some, the reality is the Ford Motor Company has been at the forefront of every automotive innovation since the invention of motor vehicles. Not only are they producing a wide range of vehicles with low to no emissions, but they’re also joining the Better Climate Challenge to help create just that: a better climate. Read on to learn more about Ford and sustainability, with your source for all things automotive in Fort Saskatchewan: Heartland Ford!


What is the Better Climate Challenge?

An initiative born in the United States of America, the Better Climate Challenge is the lofty goal of companies reducing greenhouse emissions at their manufacturing plants by 50% in the next ten years. By 2032, these companies promise to reduce their emissions by half, resulting in cleaner air and a healthier environment. And while this initiative is based in the United States, Ford plans to utilize the lessons and strategies learned from the Better Climate Challenge so they can bring them to their manufacturing plants across the world!


Which Ford vehicles are sustainable?

In addition to cleaning up the manufacturing process, Ford offers a variety of incredibly sustainable vehicles to help you do your part for the environment—without giving up the power and performance you’ve come to expect from your Ford. This means not only can you find family friendly SUVs like the Ford Escape in hybrid versions, but there are also a variety of electric powertrain Ford options that can help you get the toughest jobs done, like the Ford E-Transit, Ford F-150 Lightning, or Ford Maverick. Last, but certainly not least, the Ford Mustang Mach-E promises muscle car-like performance of up to 480 horsepower, all emissions free.
