Full membership requires Ford to identify its own high-risk facilities as well as supplier facilities, and to conduct audits on at least 25 percent of those. Ford agrees to actively support the Electronic Industry Citizenship Coalition and the goals of the organization’s code of conduct in its own operations - progressively implementing the coalition’s approach and tools in the spirit of common industry goals.
Along with fellow members, suppliers and stakeholders, Ford will collaborate with the coalition to improve working and environmental conditions by adhering to leading standards and practices. Operating on a global scale, the Electronic Industry Citizenship Coalition is recognized as a sustainability leader by industry and cross-industry organizations, and by nongovernmental organizations and governments alike.
The organization comprises more than 110 electronics companies representing 17 sectors. As the first automaker member, Ford joins a coalition made up of about 15 percent of its own suppliers.
As the company continues to invest in its Ford Smart Mobility plan and new technologies to become a leader in connectivity, mobility, autonomous vehicles, the customer experience, and data and analytics, joining the Electronic Industry Citizenship Coalition is a natural progression.
