In 2014, the Group continued a number of initiatives to extend its environmental commitment to the dealer network.
In Brazil, the Sustainability Program for Dealerships was launched, with 559 dealerships (accounting for 84% of the FCA network in Brazil) participating in the first step of the initiative.
In Italy, Group-owned dealerships implemented measures that led to a 19% reduction in energy consumption and avoidance of 1,500 tons in CO2 emissions versus 2012. Over the same time period, 6,600 tons in CO2 emissions were avoided through the use of electricity generated from renewable sources, resulting in both environmental benefits and cost savings. During 2014, specific initiatives to monitor energy and water consumption were implemented at Group- owned dealerships in other European countries.
