BASILDON, United Kingdom, Oct. 16, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- CNH Industrial N.V. (NYSE: CNHI / MI: CNHI) has been awarded with a position on The A List: The CDP Climate Performance Leadership Index 2014.

The CDP is an international, not-for-profit organisation, which holds the largest collection globally of primary climate-change, water and forest risk commodities information. It works with market forces, including 767 institutional investors, to motivate companies to disclose their impacts on the environment and natural resources and take action to reduce them.
The CDP Climate Performance Leadership Index 2014 recognises the actions of listed companies to reduce carbon emissions and mitigate the business risks of climate change. The A List includes 187 out of 2,000 listed companies which were independently assessed against CDP's widely-respected scoring methodology and ranked accordingly.
CNH Industrial and its fellow climate performance leaders on The A List index have demonstrated that they are investing to reduce their greenhouse gas emissions and collectively have reduced their total (absolute) emissions by 33 million metric tonnes in the past reporting year.
