Ford Steps Up As First Automaker To Join Voluntary Greenhouse Gas Reporting Program In India





CHENNAI, India, July 22, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

  • Ford, with two plants in Chennai, India, is first automaker to sign on to voluntary greenhouse gas reporting program for all industries established by India-based organizations
  • Ford already voluntarily reports greenhouse gas emissions in the United States, China, Canada, Mexico, Brazil and Argentina
  • Reporting CO 2 emissions is part of one facet of Ford's broad approach to cutting greenhouse gases, which includes reducing emissions at global facilities 30 percent per vehicle by 2025

Ford Motor Company (NYSE: F) is taking another major step toward helping stabilize carbon dioxide emissions globally, today becoming the first automaker to join a voluntary greenhouse gas reporting program recently established in India.

Participation in the India program builds on Ford's leadership in greenhouse gas reporting – the company already participates in similar programs in the United States, China, Canada, Mexico, Brazil and Argentina.

Voluntary reporting provides overall transparency regarding the company's CO 2 emissions and underscores the importance of the issue to Ford, which has a goal of reducing CO 2 emissions at its global facilities, including two in Chennai, India, by 30 percent per vehicle by 2025.

"Ford is pleased to be the first automaker to participate in the voluntary India greenhouse gas reporting program," said Andy Hobbs, director of the company's environmental quality office. "We look forward to sharing our knowledge and helping to establish greenhouse gas reporting in India."

India's program is a joint effort between the World Resources Institute, The Energy and Resources Institute and the Confederation of Indian Industry. As the first automaker to participate in the program, Ford's role will be to assist in the establishment of credible and verifiable greenhouse gas inventories.

"Ford India is committed to bringing fuel-efficient and safe vehicles to India that our customers want and value. And we are growing our manufacturing capabilities in India in an environmentally responsible way as part of our One Ford plan," said Joginder Singh, president and managing director, Ford India. "Ford is proud to be the first automotive company to join the voluntary greenhouse gas reporting program in India, and this is a reflection of our ongoing commitment to sustainability of manufacturing operations globally."

Ford operates a manufacturing plant that produces the Ford Figo, Ford Fiesta, Ford Classic, Ford Endeavour and Ford EcoSport, and an engine plant that produces 17 variants of gasoline and diesel engines. A vehicle assembly and engine plant complex are under construction in Sanand, Gujarat.
