A year after the giant automaker was formed by merging France’s PSA Group and the Italian-American Fiat Chrysler Automobiles, Netherlands based Stellantis has published its first Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) report, detailing its claimed strong performance across key metrics in 2021, as well as outlining its detailed sustainability plans including the commitment to reach industry leading carbon net zero emissions by 2038.

“With action and progress at its core, the report highlights Stellantis’ advancement to create and share value with its employees, customers, business partners, the communities in which it operates and other stakeholders,” the automaker said in a statement.

“Running a business responsibly is key to our long-term sustainability. The execution of our Dare Forward 2030 strategic plan, achieving carbon net zero throughout our entire value chain by 2038, gives Stellantis a leadership role in decarbonising the industry,” said CEO Carlos Tavares in the statement.

The report explores six primary areas of focus:

Bringing a tangible impact on climate change
Driving the company transformation through the development of human capital
Meeting changing customer expectations on mobility
Preventing ethics violations by promoting an ethical culture
Promoting protection and implementing responsible use of natural resources
Ensuring protection of human rights and supporting a balanced economic development of territories

Focused on material risks and opportunities, grounded on science-based evidence and audited by independent third party, the report explains how Stellantis is developing the diversity and talent of its people, actively promoting the respect for human rights across its global supply chain, while addressing environmental challenges on its journey. Also detailed within the report is how the company is supporting short, medium and long term, climate related objectives on industrial sites and across its real estate, vehicles and supply base.
