WASHINGTON, D.C. — Ford and SK Innovation’s commitment to invest $11.4 billion in advanced electric vehicle and battery manufacturing facilities in Kentucky and Tennessee underscores how climate solutions can also support good-paying jobs and economic growth.
“Electric vehicles are an essential part of the nation’s move toward a clean-energy economy, more breathable air, and a stable climate. These investments from Ford and its partner underscore that we don’t have to choose between good-paying American jobs, American manufacturing, and climate solutions,” said Collin O’Mara, president and CEO of the National Wildlife Federation. “We need our leaders in the public sector as well as other car manufacturers and industries to follow Ford’s lead in making robust investments in electric vehicles and the American workers essential to this necessary transition.”
