Since 2016, the “market-based” and “location-based” accounting approach have been implemented in accordance with GHG Protocol Scope 2 Guidance. Since then, the market-based approach has been the standard accounting approach. The historical data for 2006-2015 were calculated using a method similar to the location-based approach.

excl. liquid fuels. The specific values are calculated as the quotient of the absolute energy consumption of our consolidated production sites and the number of vehicles produced – in relation to the respective division. Consumption also takes into account power units, parts and CKD sites. The unit numbers include only Daimler's own vehicles (excluding third-party products).
The specific figures published here differ in some respects from the values used for our Group targets for reducing specific energy consumption per vehicle by 2030.
- The target program of our Mercedes-Benz Cars division takes into account the additional energy losses resulting from the expansion of the central energy generation plants (CHP plants).
- The target program of our Mercedes-Benz Vans division for the period 2013-2016 also includes the production of third-party products at our own sites.
