The business challenge
Ford Motor Company manufactures and distributes vehicles in more than 200 markets across six continents. Each manufacturing site produces vast amounts of data on carbon emissions and other environmental aspects. This needs to be standardised and collated for legislative compliance and emissions management purposes.

For Implements Global Solution to Manage Emissions

  1. 1. TRANSPORT AND LOGISTICSEMISSIONS LOGIC SOLUTIONCASE STUDY Change the world together FORD IMPLEMENTS GLOBAL SOLUTION TO MANAGE EMISSIONS One of the world’s leading vehicle manufacturers, Ford Motor Company regards environmental performance as a business priority. It undertook a project to standardise reporting and management of carbon emissions internationally. Logica and CarbonSim implemented a solution that centralised reporting and aligned emissions management with business goals. This has since been extended toKey benefits cover other environmental metrics including energy, waste and water.• Achieve a consistent THE BUSINESS CHALLENGE approach to monitoring and measuring Ford Motor Company manufactures and distributes vehicles in more than 200 markets across six continents. Each manufacturing site produces vast amounts of data on carbon emissions and other environmental data environmental aspects. This needs to be standardised and collated for legislative compliance and across all plants emissions management purposes.• Meet regulatory and Environmental assets and liabilities must now be regularly reported on, and can be openly traded reporting requirements between companies under regulations such as the EU Emissions Trading Scheme (ETS) and through voluntary arrangements such as involvement in the Chicago Climate Exchange. Ford had• Save time and effort in an immediate need for a solution to meet a growing pressure of legislative reporting requirements, as well as to develop a consistent company wide approach to managing and reducing carbon managing data and emissions. This initially involved collecting and collating data across 54 manufacturing plants reporting throughout Europe and the US.• Reduce greenhouse THE SOLUTION gas emissions and energy costs Logica and CarbonSim worked closely with the Ford environmental team to rapidly deploy the EMISSIONS logic solution to cover dozens of sites in Europe and the Americas. EMISSIONS logic is a comprehensive emissions management solution that has enabled Ford to track greenhouse gas emissions and compliance against obligations as well as manage emissions allowances. It can also be used to evaluate strategies and projects for emissions reduction and generate internal and external reports. As a result, Ford has been able to achieve a consistent approach to managing emissions across multiple manufacturing facilities, regulatory regimes and emissions calculation methodologies. A quickly realised benefit has been time savings related to tracking and managing large quantities of data to satisfy complex reporting requirements. This allows Ford to spend more time and effort on environmental improvements instead of data management. The solution has since been extended, in line with Ford’s specific requirements, to cover comprehensive plant-specific metrics including energy, water, waste and overall performance against environmental objectives and targets. A regulatory module was also added which allows Ford to store facility and regional environmental regulations to support manufacturing operations.
  2. 2. Change the world together The extended solution has been deployed throughout Ford’s manufacturing operations around the world, including 70 manufacturing sites in 17 countries. THE OUTCOME The EMISSIONS logic solution enables Ford to consistently measure and monitor environmental data. Ford has realised several other benefits through the implementation of EMISSIONS logic: • Overall, Ford have been able to save time and effort in managing data and reporting. The centralised gathering of data enables significant workload reduction and optimised usage of personnel resources. • Manufacturing plant managers are able to concentrate on plant operations and improving environmental performance rather than tracking environmental regulations and data. • Internal benchmarking can now take place between different operations to identify best-practices and potential improvements. Data is used to establish detailed water consumption and waste minimisation targets. • Enables forward trades of emission allowances and supports financial accounting related to emissions trading. • Energy cost savings are expected based on optimized tracking of energy consumption and project follow up. • CO2 emissions related to future facility actions can be tracked and evaluated. • The solution serves as a library of all applicable environmental regulatory requirements at the local, national and international levels, preserving information critical to plant operations regardless of personnel changes.
