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.
