Ford Motor Company is committed to fighting climate change, investing more than $30 billion through 2025 to electrify its most iconic nameplates. Ford is getting real traction with its Ford+ plan, doing the hard work to reinvent itself for this new era and break constraints to lead the electric revolution at scale. In the process, Ford is reimagining how electric vehicles – and the batteries that power them – are designed, manufactured and recycled as part of an ultra-efficient, carbon-neutral electric vehicle manufacturing ecosystem. Learn how Ford is doing its part to address climate change and accelerate progress to net-zero no later than 2050 by reducing emissions in three areas that account for approximately 95% of its carbon emissions: vehicle use, manufacturing and supply chain, and ensuring that no one is left behind.

It’s time for conservatives to step up and offer a free-enterprise solution to solve our nation’s climate challenges. And it’s important to get this right before the government gets it wrong – again. Free enterprise in the form of a revenue-neutral, border-adjustable carbon tax can lead the way. Bob Inglis is helping lead a bipartisan path forward on climate by engaging and building an EcoRight community of conservatives focused on a free-enterprise solution to climate change.
