1. Letter to Stakeholders

Letter from the Chairman

Dear Stakeholders,
During 2013, Fiat-Chrysler continued in its commitment to responsible and sustainable development and achieved significant new milestones in the environmental and social areas that deserve mention.

With regard to environmental performance, for example, we have reduced CO2 emissions per vehicle produced by more than 15% over the past four years.

At Fiat and Chrysler plants worldwide, we have also achieved 99% reuse of water in the manufacturing cycle, representing savings of more than 2.1 billion m3 of water in 2013.

Letter from the CEO

Dear Stakeholders,
2013 was a particularly important year for our Group and I don’t believe there could have been a more appropriate or significant way to launch 2014.

As you know, after a protracted negotiation with the VEBA Trust, on January 1st we reached an agreement that cleared the way for us to acquire 100% of Chrysler’s equity and will soon lead to the formal creation of a single entity.

From the very moment Fiat and Chrysler formed an alliance almost five years ago, we pursued a vision that went beyond industrial cooperation to full cultural integration at the global level.

All Group undertakings are deeply rooted in sustainability values, as the company strives to build a more secure future for its employees, customers, suppliers, dealers and society as a whole.
