2010 RESULTS ( billion) Revenues Trading Profit Net Profit Net Industrial Debt (**) Liquidity

(*) (**) Net of eliminations between Fiat and Fiat Industrial At 31 December 2010, Net industrial debt split between Fiat post Demerger and Fiat Industrial reflects the Net industrial debt attributable to the two groups on a stand-alone basis. The settlement of intercompany financial payables and receivables, outstanding at 31 December 2010 between Fiat post Demerger and Fiat Industrial occurred in January 2011. Had these transactions occurred before year end, this would have increased the Fiat reported post demerger cash (and conversely decreased the Fiat Industrial cash), with no effect on the above mentioned stand-alone reported Net industrial debt of the two groups at 31 December 2010.

OPERATING RESPONSIBLY

OPERATING RESPONSIBLY

Fiat Group has long been committed to promoting increasingly sustainable development, in the firm belief that growth only has value if it is achieved responsibly. Making social and environmental considerations part of its strategic processes has become an integral part of Fiat's daily business.

This is not an arbitrary commitment, but rather is increasingly central to how the Group operates, with top management leading the way. The Group Executive Council (GEC) ­ the decision-making body headed by the Chief Executive Officer of Fiat S.p.A. and made up of the CEOs of the operating sectors and the heads of certain functions ­ defines the strategic approach, approves the guidelines and Sustainability Plan and is periodically informed on the Group's environmental and social performance. In addition, the Nominating, Corporate Governance and Sustainability Committee (a sub-committee of the Board of Directors) evaluates proposals relating to strategic guidelines on sustainability and reviews the annual Sustainability Report. Fiat's commitment to environmentally and socially sustainable development was also recognized by leading sustainability rating agencies and international organizations. In 2010, Fiat S.p.A. was named as a sustainability leader for the second year running, maintaining its place in the Dow Jones Sustainability World and Dow Jones Sustainability Europe indexes, the most prestigious equity indexes that only admit companies that are best-in-class in terms of economic, environmental and social performance. Fiat received a score of 93/100 from SAM, specialists in sustainability investing, compared to an average of 70/100 for the pool of "Automobiles" sector companies analyzed. Other European companies specialized in Socially Responsible Investing (SRI) also acknowledged Fiat's performance, with Sustainalytics recognizing it as the leading automobile company and Oekom Research awarding it a "Prime" rating. Fiat Group also participated in the review conducted by the Carbon Disclosure Project, achieving the highest score (among automobile companies included in the world's 500 largest corporations by market capitalization) for the level of disclosure on issues linked to climate change and a "B" grade (on a scale from D-worst to A-best) for its climate change mitigation initiatives. Finally, Fiat Group took third place in the 2010 CSR Online Awards (established by strategic communications consultancy, Lundquist) for online communication in the area of corporate social responsibility. Although these are major achievements, they are not the final objective. Fiat is committed to maintaining high standards and constantly improving performance on several fronts: the environment and sustainable mobility; attention to the needs of individuals, both inside and outside the company; and ethical and transparent conduct.

In relation to sustainable mobility, for example, after three years as leader, Fiat Automobiles was again confirmed as having the lowest average CO2 emissions of the top selling brands in Europe (source: Jato Dynamics, September 2010). To minimize its environmental footprint, the Group has expanded the action plan established in 2009, initially focused on reducing energy consumption and CO2 emissions, to include challenging new targets for the reduction of water consumption, waste generation and major harmful emissions by the end of 2014. On the social front, the Group continued to manage the effects of the difficult economic environment on employees with responsibility and transparency and further enhanced its human capital development program. The commitment to health and safety in the workplace also continued through targeted training and other initiatives. Programs in support of the social and economic development of local communities achieved significant results again in 2010, particularly in Brazil. A detailed description of the Group's environmental and social initiatives is provided in the Fiat Group Sustainability Report, also available in an interactive version on the Group's Sustainability website. A progress report on existing projects and new targets for continuous improvement in the Group's sustainability performance are outlined in the Sustainability Plan.
