Which car manufacturer do you think is leading the way in efforts to reduce carbon emissions? Perhaps it is Toyota with its ground-breaking hybrid cars; maybe Nissan with its electric LEAF; or how about Renault with its new line-up of electrified vehicles?
Well, a new report would suggest that Fiat is the one to watch.
Fiat SPA has recently been reconfirmed in the Dow Jones Sustainability Index for the World and Europe; and now it has been admitted to both the Carbon Performance Leadership Index and the Carbon Disclosure Leadership Index. This comes just one year after it was named, alongside MINI, as being among the global leaders in its efforts to tackle climate change.
The Italian carmaker actually received the highest score for transparency in disclosure at 95 out of 100; and also scored the maximum ‘A’ grade for its efforts to reduce carbon emissions.
The scores are seen as confirmation of the environmental impact of Fiat’s business strategy. This stretches beyond simply manufacturing greener vehicles, such as the Fiat 500 (pictured): it also includes its efforts to reduce carbon emissions at its assembly and stamping plants.
In 2011, Fiat was recognised for having the lowest average CO2 emissions among the best-selling vehicle brands in Europe. Its assembly and stamping plants had achieved a 10 per cent reduction in CO2 emissions compared to 2010.
