1. Letter to Stakeholders
Letter from the Chairman
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
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.
2. Our commitment
Our Group carries out its mission of being a responsible and sustainable company every single day in every geographical area where we are present.
The ultimate goal is to provide our customers sustainable and quality products. Our engagement in sustainability has expanded over time to involve every function within the company, setting increasingly challenging goals that cover the entire value chain and focus on long-term progress, instead of short-term wins.
At Fiat Group, each employee and every organization plays a role in helping the company continue along the path of sustainability. 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.
