Ford Pro Ecolab Parked

Ecolab, a global sustainability leader, partners with Ford Pro™ to electrify its sales and service fleet, aiming for complete North American fleet electrification by 2030. Starting in California, over 1,000 Ford F-150® Lightning® Pro trucks and Mustang® Mach-E® SUVs will be deployed, creating a large all-electric fleet. Utilizing Ford Pro’s charging and telematics software, Ecolab seeks to optimize vehicle performance and productivity. This transition aligns with Ecolab’s goal of achieving net-zero emissions globally by 2050, strengthening their long-standing commitment to sustainability and positive impact.

Ford and Ecolab have worked closely for almost 100 years, from water conservation at Ford now to electrification at Ecolab. Together, we’re showing that sustainability is good for the bottom line and the environment.
