In 2011, Waste-to-landfill per vehicle data was restated for all years because casting sands (a type of waste) associated with Geelong foundry (located in the Asia Pacific region) and Taubate foundry (located in the South America Region) have been removed from the waste-to-landfill totals for years 2007?2011.

In 2012, we reduced waste to landfill on a per-vehicle basis by about 19.6 percent, which reflects our focus on reducing waste produced per unit of production. We decreased waste to landfill primarily through aggressive efforts to generate less waste and recycle more, and through the use of waste-to-energy incineration facilities.
In 2012, we continued a five-year improvement trend by reducing hazardous waste on a per-vehicle basis by 2.6 percent.
