Interbrand recently compiled a list of the 50 Best Global Green Brands, and here at O’Brien Ford of Shelbyville, we were delighted to hear that the Ford Motor Company topped the list!  This honor was won by Ford brand beating out other heavyweights across a variety of industries, and shows the Ford automakers’ commitment to going green has yielded great results.

The environmental responsibility and sustainable manufacturing practices of the Ford Motor Company were big factors in bringing the company to the top of the list.  Other elements played in as well, including transparency in business operations, disclosure of information, water focus, waste-reduction efforts, and green building initiatives.  Combine all this, and you get an environmentally sound company that doesn’t have to sacrifice the quality of their product for the sake of going green.

Robert Brown, vice president, Sustainability, Environment, & Safety Engineering at the Ford Motor Company spoke, saying “We are honored to be named No. 1 in the 2014 Best Global Green Brands.”  He added that “At Ford we are working to develop the highest-quality products in the market for our customers while manufacturing them in the most environmentally responsible manner and replicating this globally. This award tells us that our stakeholders agree.”

Here at O’Brien Ford, we are excited to be bringing the product of such an environmentally responsible company right here to Shelbyville.  Whether you are looking for a compact and efficient Ford Fusion, or the power and toughness of a Ford truck, Louisville, Lawrenceburg, Frankfort, and Shelbyville drivers can rest assured that they are buying a great product with a low environmental cost when they come to O’Brien Ford of Shelbyville.
