Energy Intensity* (in MWh/vehicle)

2010 Baseline Year.

*Includes all manufacturing and nonmanufacturing facility energy use, normalized by vehicle production (correlates to the CO2 Scopes). These data include data from some GM JVs.

Carbon Intensity* (in metric tons/vehicle)

2011 Baseline Year.

*Includes all manufacturing and nonmanufacturing CO2e emissions reported in the Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP) Scope 1 & 2 categories, normalized by vehicle production. These data include data from some GM JVs.

VOC Emissions* (in kg/vehicle)

2011 Baseline Year.

*VOC emissions are composed of the following emission units: ELPO, Primer, Topcoat, Final Repair and Cleaning Solvents, which are considered the major sources of VOC emissions from typical paint shops. Excluded are minor sources of VOC emissions, such as maintenance painting, sealers, etc. These data include data from some GM JVs.

Water Intensity (in M3/vehicle)

2011 Baseline Year.

Waste* (in kg/vehicle)

2011 Baseline Year.

*Total waste includes all byproducts that are generated as a result of daily manufacturing operations. This definition includes metal scrap and foundry sand, and excludes reused wastes, construction, demolition and remediation debris.

Landfill-Free Sites*

2011 Baseline Year.

*The term “landfill-free” means that all byproducts (wastes) that come from operations are managed by any other method except placement in a landfill. Byproduct material residues that have been sent to an off-site recycling center and subsequently landfilled by the processing and/or recycling center must not exceed 1 percent, by weight, of the GM facility’s annual total waste production volume. Ash generated from GM waste materials at off-site energy recovery facilities is exempt.

GM U.S. CO2e Fleet Emissions Reduction (grams/km)

2011 Baseline Year.

Includes all U.S. light-duty vehicle performance.

**2013 was originally reported as 267; realignment of plants between regions is the primary reason for the difference; corrections to the data were also made at one plant.

GM Europe CO2e Fleet Emissions Reduction* (grams/km)

2012 Baseline Year.

*EU member states are obliged to annually report CO2 emission data of new cars and vans under EU Regulation (EC) 1014/2010. Prior-year data have been adjusted to reflect the current GM fleet in Europe, which includes vehicles manufactured by Opel/Vauxhall, GM Korea and GM North America.
