    Fiat Chrysler Automobiles recognized among global leaders in climate change

    For the fourth consecutive year, the Group has been recognized by CDP as a leader for its commitment to addressing climate change and the significant results achieved.

    Today, FCA was named to the Climate “A” List in the CDP Climate Change Program 2015 and achieved a transparency score of 98/100. Only 5% of the corporations participating in this CDP program are named to the “A” List. The results are published in the CDP Global Climate Change Report 2015, which tracks five years of progress from the world’s largest listed companies.

    FCA believes that effective, lasting solutions to climate change and other pressing environmental issues can only be achieved through an integrated approach that combines individual and collective commitment; an effective multi-stakeholder strategy; and investment in enabling processes and technologies. All of these elements are an integral part of FCA’s model of operating responsibly and have been recognized by CDP on the basis of transparency in disclosure and performance.

    In an increasingly competitive global environment, the Group has remained firm in its commitment to responsible leadership with concrete steps to mitigate the effects of climate change.

    The principal results achieved in 2014 include:
    • European leadership in natural gas vehicles, with more than a 55% share of the market
    • reduced environmental footprint of Group plants worldwide, with a 20.5% decrease in CO2 emissions per vehicle produced compared with 2010

    • 37% reduction in water usage at worldwide plants compared with 2010
    • B band designation in the CDP Water program

    • involvement of 210 business partners in the CDP Supply Chain program, extending the application of sustainability principles and best practices throughout the supply chain.

    Since 2012, the Group has been one of the limited number of companies that actively participate in all CDP initiatives (Climate Change, Water, Forest and Supply Chain).

    FCA continues its quest for a low-carbon future through an approach informed by the perspectives of energy producers, manufacturers (including suppliers), consumers, community, academia, the financial community and government. This broad engagement is reflected in FCA’s commitment to selected targets sponsored by CDP for COP21, the upcoming UN climate change conference where national leaders will develop a framework for action to reduce carbon emissions and limit temperature warming.

    CDP is an international not-for-profit organization that provides the only global system for companies and cities to measure, disclose, manage and share essential environmental information relating to carbon emissions, water consumption and forest conservation. CDP operates on behalf of 822 institutional investors who represent more than a third of the world’s invested capital.

    From what I gathered the tube/fin vs bar/plate is somewhat debatable. The surface area, end tube design and the thickness of the core itself plays more
