Linamar has participated in emissions reporting disclosures for several years in conjunction with some of our key automotive OEM customer’s expectations through the CDP (Carbon Disclosure Project). Although this program encompassed a majority of Linamar’s operations it was not a full global picture and therefore this limited dataset did not provide a complete picture of CO2 Emissions. Linamar’s annual CDP submissions were not externally disclosed to the public until such time as a full inventory could be quantified. The data gathering and verification systems required to conduct such an exercise required development and implementation on a global scale in order to achieve this.
2022 was the initial year Linamar conducted a full global emissions inventory for all sites, all segments and all divisions across all geographies utilizing the above mentioned operational data systems. Additionally, Linamar engaged the service of an external environmental consulting firm to advise on the quantification of emissions derived from the global operations. From that, the company is now able to disclose Scope 1 & 2 total emissions along with intensity measures as outlined below. The consultant has utilized industry best practice through application of the ISO 14064 Greenhouse gases – Part 1 standard, as well as The Greenhouse Gas Protocol Corporate Accounting and Reporting standard (GHG Protocol). Emissions factoring for CO2 quantification was calculated in accordance with the International Panel on Climate Change (IPCC).
|Scope 1 & 2 emissions (metric tons)
|Sales (CAD, millions)
|Sales Intensity (CO2 metric tons/$ Revenue)
|Employee Intensity (metric tons/employee)
|Square Footage (million sq. ft)
|Square Footage Intensity (metric tons/sq. ft.)
Note: Provided that 2022 was the initial year a full global emissions inventory was conducted, the annualized 2022 figures will be utilized as the baseline on a go-forward basis to conduct reduction improvement and milestone target comparisons.
