US:Ford: Pollution from plants up in '03

Ford: Pollution from plants up in '03

By Eric Mayne / The Detroit News

Ford Motor Co.ís plants worldwide consumed more water and energy in 2003 compared to 2002. They also emitted more carbon dioxide ó a key contributor to global warming ó the automaker said in its fifth annual corporate citizenship report issued Thursday.

But the automakerís product quality, workplace safety and support for minority-controlled businesses improved, the report said.

In Europe, carbon dioxide emissions from Fordís Land Rover and Volvo brands increased in 2003. Carbon dioxide emissions from Fordís U.S. models ó cars and trucks ó improved along with the companyís corporate average fuel economy.

An automakerís CAFE level is a sales-weighted average determined by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. Fordís CAFE rating was 23.6 mpg in 2003, compared with 23.2 mpg in 2002.

But Ford said U.S. fuel economy will decline in 2004 to 23 mpg, partly because itís reducing the availability of thrifty alternative fuel vehicles. Ford is the industry leader in the sales of vehicles that use fuels such as ethanol, but the availability of the fuels is limited.
