We measure and report on our overall energy and carbon, water, waste, and sales fleet fuel efficiency performance. We include data gathered from 16 manufacturing, research and development, and distribution facilities in North America, South America, Eurasia, Asia and Europe, representing approximately 88 percent of our operations—based on our facilities’ square footage. The remaining square footage includes primarily administrative offices. Recently acquired facilities are outside the scope of this report.
