Ford utilizes sustainable printing

In the past year, Ford Motor Company has reduced its use of paper made exclusively from virgin sources by 6,000 tons – the equivalent of a loaded freight train with two locomotives and 100 cars.

Those results were achieved through an increased use of paper from recycled content instead of virgin sources for all high-volume, consumer and employee printing projects. Beginning this year, about 2.2 million Ford, Lincoln and Mercury vehicle owner’s manuals will be printed annually in the United States on paper containing at least 10 percent recycled fiber and certified by the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC). The effort supports Ford’s comprehensive sustainability strategy.
