302-4 Reduction of energy consumption 2,086,502 GJ
All types of facility energy were included in the reductions. The basis for calculation is absolute reduction from activities in 2017. Standards, methodologies and assumptions used were good engineering practices.
302-5 Reductions in energy requirements of products and services Manage—Products; Measure—Products; Act—Products;
5,829,248 GJ
Reductions in energy consumption of our products can be contributed to the addition of electric vehicles in China and increased production of electric vehicles versus internal combustion engine vehicles. Rationale for this calculation includes increased efficiencies of Chevrolet Bolt EV and Volt as compared to Chevrolet Cruze. Standards, methodologies, assumptions and calculation tools used can be found at https://www.fueleconomy.gov

303-1 Interactions with water as a shared resource A combination of municipal, wells, rainwater, surface and reuse are sources of GM’s water use. Water is critical to automobile production and for building occupants for drinking water and hygiene. Local facility knowledge provides information on water supply impacts for current operations, and we engage in the use of WRI Aqueduct for future forecasting. Risks in current operations are mitigated with either alternate supply or water reuse working with local utilities. GM engages with over 300 suppliers through CDP Water Supply Chain and other organizations like AIAG. Company goals were set to continuously improve and reduce intensity from 2010 to 2020 by 15 percent. Water is integrated into our business plan, and each facility has a target for year-over-year improvement.
303-2 Management of water discharge-related impacts General Motors maintains an environmental performance criteria document on water pollution control (EPC-003). Within this document minimum concentration-based performance requirements are defined for wastewater discharge to surface water and for wastewater discharges to external wastewater systems. Where local permit limits are more stringent, those supersede the GM requirements. Where no permit limit is provided, the performance requirements are used.
303-3 Water withdrawal
Total water withdrawal from all areas, by source
Surface water 0 megaliters
Groundwater 3,265 megaliters
Seawater 0
Produced Water 0
Third-party water 32,585 megaliters
Total water withdrawal from all areas with water stress, by source: 4,273 megaliters
Surface Water 0
Groundwater 0.86 megaliters
Seawater 0
Produced water 0
Third-party water 3,412 megaliters
Total water withdrawal by source:
Freshwater (≤1,000 mg/L Total Dissolved Solids) 3,412 megaliters
Other water (>1,000 mg/L Total Dissolved Solids) 0.86 megaliters
Meter and invoice information were used to gather data.
303-4 Water discharge
Total water discharge, by destination
Surface water 11,451 megaliters
Groundwater 119 megaliters
Seawater 0 megaliters
Third-party water 22,548 megaliters
Total water discharge, by category*
Freshwater (≤1,000 mg/L Total Dissolved Solids) 11,451 megaliters
Other water (>1,000 mg/L Total Dissolved Solids). 0 megaliters
Total water discharge to all areas with water stress,by category*
Freshwater (≤1,000 mg/L Total Dissolved Solids) 0 megaliters
Other water (>1,000 mg/L Total Dissolved Solids) 0 megaliters
*Accounts only for direct surface water discharges from GM facilities globally.
Priority substances of concern for which discharges are treated GM has established minimum standards for effluent discharges globally to protect water quality and human health. The GM standards were developed for appropriate industrial and sanitary wastewater pollutants in discharges from GM facilities. All GM facilities are subject to the GM standards, as well as applicable local/state/country discharge requirements and permit requirements. The GM standards are often more stringent.
303-5 Water consumption Total water consumption from all areas: 10,738 megaliters.

Total water consumption from all areas with water stress: 1,104 megaliters

GM calculates water consumption based on water withdrawal times and engineering calculation for evaporation of 30 percent. Using the formula withdrawal minus discharge provides negative consumption due to groundwater infiltration at plant site.

GM experiences water stress at two sites in Mexico and has mitigated the risk by recycling and reusing wastewater in the manufacturing process

305-3 Other indirect (Scope 3) GHG emissions Calculation includes CO2, CH4, N20, HFCs, PFCs, SF6 and NF3. Reporting is based on GHG Protocol, and the source of emission factors is regulatory or IPCC. This represents our Scope 3 emissions for 2018:
  Metric tons CO2e
Gross other indirect emissions 264,563,698
305-4 GHG emissions intensity 0.67 metric tons CO2e/vehicle
Calculated on the basis of 8,459,236 production vehicles; includes Scope 1 and 2 emissions and all GHG gases.
305-5 Reduction of GHG emissions 357,033 metric tons CO2
Calculated using GHG Protocol on the basis of year-over-year reduction in 2018 from 2017; and includes all GHG gases in Scope 1 and 2 emissions. We use internal project tracking tools to obtain this data.

Calculation includes R-123, R-500, R-22, R-113, R141B, R-502, R-409A. Figures represent actual emissions; if actual emission data was not available, an emission factor of 8.5 percent of the total equipment charge by refrigerant was used to estimate emissions. The 8.5 percent rate is based on the median range of leakage rates estimates provided by the IPCC Good Practice Guidelines and Uncertainty Management in National Greenhouse Gas Inventories (2000).
305-7 Nitrogen oxides (NOX), sulfur oxides (SOX) and other significant air emissions 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, such as maintenance painting, sealers, etc. These data include data from some GM JVs.
