DETROIT, Dec. 20 – The Ford Motor Company said Tuesday it was taking action to reduce harmful emissions from its plants and vehicles, but it said continued progress depended on better collaboration with the oil industry and government, and better education of consumers about their driving habits.
Ford made the comments in a report on its efforts to reduce carbon dioxide and other harmful emissions that contribute to global warming. The automaker said its factories produced 8.4 million metric tons of carbon dioxide emissions worldwide in 2004. A metric ton is equal to 2,204 pounds.
