Indirect 6.4 7.7 7.6 7.5 7.5 7.06

Data notes and analysis:

  1. 2014 data shows two decimal places to avoid a rounding discrepancy in the total.
  2. Data for 2013 direct energy and total energy has been restated to include Ford’s Hermosillo Stamping and Assembly Plant, which was inadvertantly excluded from the calculation in our prior year’s report.

Indirect 1,381 1,478 1,370 1,332 1,213 1,167

Data notes and analysis:

Total energy use per vehicle deteriorated slightly in 2014 compared to 2013 (it increased by 0.2 percent) due to production changes, an increased number of operating facilities and colder weather, which increases the related energy demands.

  • Third party verified (North America and EU)1
  • Reported to regulatory authorities (EU). Voluntarily reported to emissions registries or other authorities in Argentina, Australia, Brazil, Canada, China, Taiwan, the U.S and Venezuala

Data notes and analysis:

  1. Verification data is not yet available for Ford’s 2014 global facility GHG emissions. 100 percent of Ford’s 2013 global facility GHG emissions are third-party verified to limited assurance. 73 percent of Ford’s 2013 global facility GHG emissions are third-party verified to a reasonable level of assurance. In addition, all of our European facilities impacted by the mandatory EU Emissions Trading Scheme (EU-ETS) are third-party verified. All EU-ETS verification statements are provided to Ford, by facility, from Lucideon (formerly CICS) for UK facilities, Lloyds for Spain, Intechnica for Germany and SGS for Belgium. North American facilities are verified against the Climate Registry’s General Reporting Protocol. European facilities are verified against the EU-ETS rules and guidelines.

Data notes and analysis:

The energy efficiency index is a normalized indicator of energy used in our manufacturing facilities per vehicle produced based on a calculation that adjusts for typical variances in weather and vehicle production. The Index is set at 100 for the baseline year to simplify tracking annual improvements. In 2012, we expanded our energy efficiency to include global energy use data. In previous years, it only included energy use at North American facilities. In 2012, we also reset the baseline year to 2011. A year 2000 baseline was used through 2006; the baseline was reset to year 2010 starting in 2011. The year 2012 improvement indexed against the year 2011 baseline was 6.4, indicating a 6.4 percent improvement in global energy efficiency per vehicle from 2011 to 2012. Higher percentage reflects improvement. The year 2014 improvement indexed against the year 2011 baseline was 21, indicating a 21 percent improvement.
