CNH Industrial firmly believes that the way to create long-term value for all its stakeholders is to embed sustainability principles into the Company’s strategy.
In 2016, the Company identified the social, political, economic, and environmental shifts that are currently generating major changes across the globe, and therefore new challenges to be tackled. ‘Climate Change’, ‘Food Scarcity and Food Security’, and an ‘Innovative and Digital World’ were identified as the megatrends that the Company needs to measure up to as a priority.
To reach these goals CNH Industrial believes that a robust corporate governance model is essential to effectively manage the interests of all its stakeholders. Our Code of Conduct establishes the principles that drive day-to-day activities; the Sustainability Plan is a transparent representation of the Company’s commitment to deliver continuous improvement; and the Sustainability Report describes its achievements.
CNH Industrial continued to offer new, more efficient products that consume and pollute less, including precision farming and machine automation, recognized as the most efficient drivers toward sustainable agriculture. Via its agriculture brands, CNH Industrial’s Innovation Group has developed autonomous concept technology to help farmers and agribusinesses boost production and productivity. These concept tractors were designed to enable fully remote deployment, monitoring, and control. They use GPS together with the most accurate satellite correction signals for ultra-precision guidance and immediate recording and transmission of field data.
CNH Industrial continues to promote economic, social, and cultural development in the communities in which it operates. Through its U.S. Foundation, it supports charitable organizations such as Habitat for Humanity and the United Way, through which employees help improve the lives of others in their communities and beyond. Around the globe, the TechPro2 project supports and trains young people while creating a new pool of highly qualified technicians.
CNH Industrial’s sustainability efforts in 2016 resulted in the Dow Jones Sustainability World and Europe indices confirming the Company as Industry Leader in the Machinery and Electrical Equipment industry for the sixth consecutive year. The Company ranked among the top 9% of the over 2,100 corporations participating in the CDP climate change program, leading to inclusion in the A List, in recognition of its actions to optimize energy consumption, reduce CO2 emissions, and mitigate the business risks of climate change.
Not only do these repeated accomplishments confirm that our results are of the highest standards; they reaffirm our ability to maintain them over time, and this is thanks to the continued dedication of our 62,000 employees worldwide.
