First-Ever Human Rights Review by an Automaker Conducted by Ford

There is some good news to note about the auto industry behind the recent headlines about layoffs and tariff wars. Ford has completed a“saliency assessment,” a review that identifies the most important human rights issues relevant to the company. The assessment was conducted in line with the UN Guiding Principles Reporting Framework.The automaker says it will now develop an action plan to address these issues, through a specific filter of the link between environmental issues and the human rights issues that emerged from the review. A holistic overview such as that of Ford’s review could introduce as much meaningful change into the industry as any shift in energy sourcing or computer-driven features.
