Fiat SpA, which produces Alfa Romeo, Fiat, Ferrari and Maserati cars and Fiat commercial vehicles, has received the Sector Mover and Gold Class distinctions from SAM, the sustainability-focused investment group which analyses the 2,500 largest quoted companies globally to determine their eligibility for inclusion in the Dow Jones Sustainability indexes.
For 2009, Fiat was best relative improvement in sustainability performance within the Automobile sector (SAM Sector Mover) and the gap with the sector leader is less than 5% (SAM Gold Class).
In September, Fiat had been recognised by SAM as a leader in Sustainability with a score of 90/100 and entry to the prestigious Dow Jones Sustainability World and Dow Jones Sustainability STOXX indexes, which only admit companies evaluated as best-in-class in the management of their businesses from an economic, as well as social and environmental point of view.
This important recognition is demonstration of the fact that Sustainability is an ever more integral part of the Fiat Group and that, despite deteriorating market conditions, the Group continued to invest to achieve ever more ambitious targets that are based on the belief that industrial development only creates value when it is sustainable.
