Generating long-term stakeholder value means managing the value chain “from cradle to gate”, also taking into account the product lifecycle and its environmental impact.
We focused our approach on three patterns:
Maximizing energy efficiency
Optimizing the environmental performance of conventional engines
Increasing the use of alternative fuels
Maximizing energy efficiency means both providing end-user fuel savings and reducing the carbon footprint of our products.
A carbon footprint project has been included in the sustainability plan within FPT Industrial responsibility.
The carbon footprint project is aimed to identify improvement to the product from concept to design, including machining, assembling, manufacturing process, maintenance, remanufacturing, recycle and dismission.
FPT Industrial started the project with the Life Cycle Assessment of F1C engine (that includes 4 phases: goal and scope definition, Life Cycle Inventory, Life Cycle Impact Assessment and Life Cycle Interpretation) based on ISO 14040, ISO 14044 and ISO/TS 14067 standards.
We succeeded in transforming emission legislation constraints into a competitive advantage for our powertrains. By exploiting the lightness, compactness, efficiency and reliability of our SCR-only solutions, we have managed to offer our Customers better performance and lower operating costs.
As FPT Industrial, we are at the leading edge of technology in the evaluation, testing, and promotion of alternative fuels. We have just launched the most performing CNG truck engine ever, and this year we will introduce our first products running on Hydro-treated Vegetable Oil (a second-generation renewable biofuel).
