Fiat Chrysler has been named to the Dow Jones Sustainability Index World, the automaker announced Thursday.
FCA received a score of 87/100 for its efforts towards sustainability, well above the overall average of 54/100 for companies in the automobile industry. RobecoSAM, the world’s leader in sustainability investment, invited 36 companies in the auto industry to apply for membership in the index and admitted just four.
RobecoSAM gave FCA the highest score in the industry for its climate strategy and environmental reporting, brand management and supply chain management. The automaker also reduced its environmental footprint of its worldwide manufacturing plants, trimming C02 emissions by 23.4% per vehicle compared to 2010 and saving 2.3 billion m3 of water.
According to FCA, other examples of its efforts to “achieve success responsibly,” include introducing the 2017 Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid, investing €4.1 billion in R&D, owning half of Europe’s natural gas powered car market, announcing a collaboration with Google’s Autonomous Driving Project and implementing a low carbon fleet of natural gas trucks in the U.S.
