Ford is taking another 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 CO2 emissions and underscores the importance of the issue to Ford, which has a goal of reducing CO2 emissions at its global facilities, including two in Chennai, India, by 30 percent per vehicle by 2025.
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.
