Environmental Quality Office, May 25, ISO and Supplier Environmental Requirements By Bob Devlin, Manager Environmental Management and Gary Davis, Environmental Engineer, Norfolk Assembly Plant “Protecting the Environment is Everyone’s Job.”
Environmental Quality Office, May 25, Overview Ford’s Environmental Management System – Gary Davis, Environmental Engineer, Norfolk Assembly Plant Ford Supplier ISO – Bob Devlin, Ford Motor Company
Environmental Quality Office, May 25, Ford’s Environmental Management System Why Ford chose ISO 14001? Implementation Lesson’s Learned
Environmental Quality Office, May 25, Why ISO Certification Transition from a multi-national company to a global company -- Ford Desire for consistent global systems including environmental systems. Supports Ford strategies –Corporate citizenship –Empowerment (delegated responsibility)
Environmental Quality Office, May 25, Why ISO Certification Third party certification is an additional resource for monitoring and provides credibility. Potential requirement for sales. Enhance image, potential competitive advantage. Improve relations with government agencies. ISO is NOT a Performance Standard or a Guarantee of 100% regulatory compliance
Environmental Quality Office, May 25, Background We see no conflict between business goals and social and environmental needs. I believe the distinction between a good company and a great one is this: A good company delivers excellent products and services; a great one delivers excellent products and services and strives to make the world a better place William Clay Ford, Jr. Chairman of the Board
Environmental Quality Office, May 25, ISO Benefits: –Improve Environmental performance –Reduce costs –Establish single management system standard and process –Integrate with other management systems –Increase Public Credibility –Competitiveness –Improved relationship w/ Regulatory Agencies
Environmental Quality Office, May 25, Lessons Learned Top Management and Plant Management Support Begin by evaluating and using what’s already in place Borrowing – a great place to start - Aspects, EMPs, Procedures, Work Instructions Bottom line: Must work for YOU!
Environmental Quality Office, May 25, Lessons Learned Implementation requires a significant level of effort and commitment Excellent opportunity to heighten environmental awareness within the facility/plant Program maintenance involves the continued support of the plant & management team
Environmental Quality Office, May 25, Examples of Benefits Assembly Plant in Ohio reduced purge solvent by 30% resulting in material cost savings of $104,000 annually Assembly Plant in Kentucky reduced the plant air pressure from 105 PSI to 95 PSI resulting in an annual savings of $150,000 Canadian Engine Plant (typical of many plants) replaced 3200 fluorescent lights with energy efficient bulbs and ballasts reduced energy usage by 1.04 million kWh per year and reduced energy costs by $44,000 per year
Environmental Quality Office, May 25, Top Two Questions Ford Environmental System ISO Top Two Questions Why ISO for suppliers? What is required of suppliers?
Environmental Quality Office, May 25, Why ISO for suppliers : For Ford to be able to demonstrate continuous improvement, it was determined our suppliers should also be certified to the same standards
Environmental Quality Office, May 25, Ford Supplier Requirements Certification and maintenance of an ISO environmental management system Chemicals and materials involved in products or services delivered must meet the requirements stated in Restricted Material Standard WSS- M99P9999-A1 and/or Black & Grey lists Standards 1009,1 and 1009,11 (for Volvo suppliers) Environmental data on processes used and products or materials supplied must be available and furnished upon request to enable environmental product assessments
Environmental Quality Office, May 25, Ford Supplier Requirements Effective packaging solutions must be used to minimize waste for delivered products and services Recyclability – the use of recycled materials and design for recycling principles – shall be considered during the selection of materials and design solutions. All plastic and polymeric parts must be properly identified Cascade of ISO requirements to tiered suppliers.
Environmental Quality Office, May 25, Production and non-production suppliers to achieve registration at a minimum of one manufacturing site shipping product to Ford by year end Suppliers to achieve registration of all their manufacturing sites shipping to Ford by July 2003, Volvo by year end Suppliers encouraged to take similar action with their tiered suppliers. ISO Supplier Requirements
Environmental Quality Office, May 25, Implementation of Supplier Requirements The Case For Change Communication Training
Environmental Quality Office, May 25, Case For Change Internal Lessons Learned Benchmarking Supplier Readiness Assessment
Environmental Quality Office, May 25, Case for Change Benchmarking Automotive Companies Requesting ISO RequireRecommend Ford(certification)BMW / Rover Jaguar (certification) VW/Audi Volvo (certification) Saab GM (self certification)Porsche Honda (Europe & Top NA)?Toyota Daimler Chrysler (Europe)? Nissan ?
Environmental Quality Office, May 25, Case For Change ISO Supplier Readiness Survey Letter and survey sent to Top 200 production and Top 90 non-production suppliers in North America in February Letter and survey sent to “Europe 150” suppliers in Europe 95% production suppliers. Jaguar sent letter to Top suppliers in June 1998 encouraging suppliers to pursue ISO 14001, followed up with survey to assess supplier readiness in March 1999.
Environmental Quality Office, May 25, Case For Change While not conforming to these requirements may not remove a supplier from the approved source list, it may cost that supplier future business and may encourage re-sourcing in the future.
Environmental Quality Office, May 25, Percent of Suppliers With A Corporate Environmental Policy Note : Percentages represent percentage of survey respondents only.
Environmental Quality Office, May 25, Benchmark Survey Results A total of 35 European Suppliers* currently have plants registered to ISO or EMAS. (Europe 150 Production) A total of 38 North American Suppliers* have plants currently registered to ISO (Top 100 & Next 100) Among non-production suppliers, 7 reported registration to ISO * Suppliers Reporting minimum of one plant currently shipping to Ford registered to ISO or EMAS as of July 1999.
