Fiat Among The Global Leaders In Fighting Climate Change

Fiat Among The Global Leaders In Fighting Climate Change

Click for big version

Following its recent reconfirmation in the Dow Jones Sustainability World and Europe indexes, Fiat S.p.A. has also entered the Global 500 Carbon Disclosure Leadership Index (CDLI) and Carbon Performance Leadership Index (CPLI) according to the report published by the Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP).

More than 400 companies were analyzed worldwide and Fiat was the only Italian company among the 23 companies admitted to both indexes.

The CDLI only includes those companies in the FTSE Global Equity Index Series (Global 500) that demonstrate the greatest transparency in disclosure to stakeholders of the strategies and actions taken to combat climate change. The CPLI, on the other hand, includes companies that have demonstrated the greatest commitment in reducing carbon emissions.

Fiat received a score of 93/100 for transparency in disclosure and the maximum score (“A”) for the commitment shown in reducing carbon emissions. Both scores represented a major improvement over the prior year and confirm the central role of reducing environmental impacts in Fiat’s overall business strategy.

CDP, which acts on behalf of 551 institutional investors holding US$71 trillion in assets, is an independent non-profit organization holding the world’s largest database of actions taken by companies to mitigate climate change. Approximately 3,000 organizations worldwide measure and disclose their carbon emissions, together with climate-related risks and opportunities, through the Carbon Disclosure Project.

Sam Uffindell’s defenders keep reminding us that he was only 16 at the time of the King’s College incident, and haven’t we all done things in our teens that, as adults, we look back on with shame and embarrassment? True. Let's be honest. Haven’t we all at one time or another, joined a gang and beaten a smaller, younger kid black and blue with wooden clubs? In that respect, Uffindell’s defenders on the streets of Tauranga risk sounding a bit like the psychiatrist Kargol played by Graham Chapman on Monty Python. Some of the media commentary has also noted how the Uffindell saga has taken the shine off National’s good poll results and distracted us all from the unveiling of an important welfare policy at the recent National Patty conference. OK… So let's put the spotlight back on that welfare policy...
