For several years, Ford has been working to reduce waste, energy use and emissions generated by its manufacturing facilities around the world. Its latest step has been to join to the Climate Registry, a non-profit group that is developing standards for reporting greenhouse gas emissions. The idea is that emissions reporting is useless unless everyone uses the same criteria to determine and record the output. Most of the U.S. states, Canadian provinces and Mexican states have adopted these standards. Companies reporting their emissions can use the same methodology in all the regions that have adopted the TCR regime. To be a member of TCR, Ford (and all other member companies and agencies) will have to measure, independently audit and publicly report greenhouse gas emissions.

      Ben, are you discounting the progress that has been made over the last 40+ years? Care to compare the mileage and pollution numbers of a 1970 Ford with those of a 2008?

      Bill Ford has demonstrated his concern for the ecology from the day he took over Ford. He wasn't the best CEO, hence Mullaly, but his heart and efforts were in the right place.

      Mullaly may give Ford real advantage as composites make their way into passenger cars.His experience at Boeing must have taught him alot about fuselages and packaging of passenger space.At the very least he will be open to radical ways of looking at the car body.

      Good to see car makers doing something about their emissions. GM has tried some stuff in their operations too - check it out at http://www.cutyourfootprint.com

      But that doesn't seem to solve any of the emissions from their products! Companies shouldn't be able to just sell the cars than say any emissions are that are the fault of the driver.

      What's the catch? Ford could not possibly do this because it is the right thing to do.. or could it? :)

      These car companies always leave us guessing.
