CNH Industrial is continuously analyzing and improving its employees’ journeys to and from work in order to promote sustainable mobility. These initiatives reduce environmental impact, commuting time, cost and stress, while supporting the wellbeing of staff and encouraging socialization between colleagues.
For employees at plants in Turin and San Matteo in Italy, the Company launched the innovative MyShuttle! Service, which uses a fleet of IVECO minibuses powered by natural gas. A specially designed mobile app developed by VIA Technologies allows staff to book a ride in advance or at the last minute. Additional shuttle services have been set up at strategic points near to plants in Piracicaba (Brazil); Harbin (China); Annonay and Croix (France); and Greater Noida, Pithampur and Pune (India).

New Holland Construction supports charities like the Mano Down Institute, in the state of Minas Gerais (Brazil), which helps people of all ages with Down’s syndrome with health-care issues, social assistance, education, cultural and sports activities, and work opportunities. In all some 500 families benefit. In 2021, New Holland partnered with the institute for a second year, sponsoring a new space for the expanding service, as well as three specific projects. Avante Mano Down is creating an ecosystem for social inclusion.
Mano a Mano promotes cultural diversity through artistic and musical performances, and the charity set up a Christmas event for the Mano Down choir, which performed in a sled pulled by a New Holland L330 mini loader. New Holland also promoted a lecture at a dealers’ meeting to raise awareness of the treatments needed by people with Down’s syndrome. “The Mano Down partnership develops artistic skills that stimulate sensitivity, cultural knowledge, training, discipline and other socio-educational skills”, says Erika Michalick, CNH Industrial’s Sustainability Manager for Latin America.
CNH Industrial is working with the Brands4Sustainability initiative, which actively supports the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), on a project called Capri Circolare — A Sustainable Tourism Model.
An in-depth analysis of the Mediterranean island will position it as a green destination by creating a framework with set themes, actions and objectives to champion a circular economy and implement best practice to protect local culture, resources and biodiversity. The result will be known as the ‘Capri Model’ and can then be rolled out to other small islands.
FOOD HAMPERS AND TRAINING SCHEMES
Pakistan was hit hard by the COVID-19 pandemic, particularly in the financial and economic capital Karachi, which now has more than 600 slum areas. CNH Industrial teamed up with social welfare organization Taqweem-e-Pakistan to purchase 500 food hampers from small local vendors and distribute them to the city’s most vulnerable communities — widows, orphans, the disabled and minorities, including the transgender community.
An additional initiative also offered long-term support for people who had lost jobs during the pandemic. Twenty men were offered a year’s training to obtain a Diploma in ICU and Anesthesia.
To secure a sustainable future, the agriculture sector must eliminate waste, and Case IH’s Patriot® 50 series sprayers offer farmers an effective solution. The three new models — the Patriot 3250, 4350 and 4450 — will come to market from fall 2022 and have already won awards from the American Society of Agricultural and Biological Engineers (ASABE) for outstanding agricultural innovation. The sprayers help farmers get into fields sooner with less compaction and offer enhanced connectivity and integrated Raven technology (see also Investing in Precision Farming Expertise).
They provide consistent, accurate applications every season, reducing excessive use of precious resources including pesticides and fertilizers. “Today’s growers and ag retailers are looking for complete vehicle control and dependable features to enhance their productivity”, says Mark Burns, Case IH Application Equipment Marketing Manager. “That’s why we completely redesigned every detail of the Patriot 50 series sprayer to deliver next-level efficiency along with an unmatched day-to-day operator experience”.
VOCATIONAL TRAINING AND FOOD DISTRIBUTION
Working with the Sa Kaeo College of Agriculture and Technology in Thailand, CNH Industrial launched a new youth technical training program in 2021. After completing four weeks of practical training working with New Holland tractors, students participated in an initiative for the We Care We Share outreach program. 1,200 bags of high-quality jasmine rice were purchased, labelled with the company logo in an hour, and distributed along with canned foods and instant noodles to four communities across the country that were hit hard by the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Poh Teck Tung Foundation in Bangkok, which supports victims of road accidents, received 630 bags of rice. The Foundation for Slum Child Care, also in the capital, was given rice as well as hygiene products and milk powder. The Bang Pla community in the province of Samut Prakan near Bangkok was given enough to feed 200 people and the Baan Eua Arthorn community in the province of Nakhon Nayok in the center of the country was given 250 portions of rice and also canned food.
