Ford wins recycling award

Ford Motor Company Wins Award for Buying Recycled

The Ford Motor Company was among the winners of the Mayor of London's Green Procurement Code Awards for 2004/05, announced on Tuesday.

Companies signed up to the Procurement Code used £188 million worth of products made from or containing recycled materials in the last year.

Award winners announced on Tuesday were:

Most innovative organisation – London Fire Brigade
Best performing public sector organisation – London borough of Croydon
Best performing small to medium sized enterprise – Forum for the Future
Best performing corporate organisation – Ford Motor Company
Supplier of the year – M-real

It is believed that by far the largest proportion of the £188 million spent on recycled products was undertaken by Ford – possibly as much as £100 million.
Although the company is unwilling to reveal exactly how much it spends on recycled products for commercial reasons, the motor manufacturer said it had effectively diverted 21,000 tonnes of material from landfill through its purchasing policy, 4.5% up on last year's figure.
