Ford Philippines Recognized For Outstanding CSR

MANILA, Philippines, 2 March 2017 - Ford Philippines was the recipient of two prestigious awards for its corporate social responsibility (CSR) programs at the first-ever ‘Driven to Serve’ Awards of the Society of Philippine Motoring Journalists (SPMJ) – one each for its Driving Skills for Life driver safety program and its Operation Better World initiatives.

The Driven to Serve Awards were launched this year to recognize the best CSR initiatives in the local automotive industry, with categories including environment, community development, road safety and education, and training.

Ford received the top award in the Road Safety category, Platinum, for its Driving Skills for Life (DSFL) program.
