Ford Retains Top Automotive Global Ranking in Corporate Human Rights Benchmark Analysis

DEARBORN, Mich., Nov. 21, 2022 – For the second time in a row Ford is ranked the top automotive brand in the World Benchmarking Alliances’ 2022 Corporate Human Rights Benchmark. Ford also ranks among the top ten of 127 companies who were assessed as part of the benchmark.

Leading the list of a total of 29 automotive companies, Ford’s top position was determined by a rigorous, updated methodology that included analyzing current policies, processes and practices in place that systematize human rights, coupled with effective response examples and protocols to address potential allegations.

“Leading the electric vehicle revolution is exciting, but with it comes even more responsibility to ensure steadfast social and environmental sustainability measures across our operations and global supply chains,” said Cynthia Williams, Global Director, Sustainability, Homologation & Compliance, Ford Motor Company. “When it comes to human rights, our jobs are never done, but we’re proud to be leading the charge and working closely with respected organizations that keep us all accountable.”
