KNPO believes that an automaker's environmental responsibility should extend beyond the safety within the vehicle, to the way customers and living beings live surrounded by vehicles. Today's customers looks for active health and safety design concepts regarding the vehicle owner, pedestrians, animals and nature, as well as the producer's employees.
We hope KNPO can be part of such improvement thanks to the FCA Group. We also know the FCA Group could capitalize on such collaboration.
Brands into reflective beads
Our proposal is to produce and distributing reflective beads in forms of FCA's brands such as Quadrifoglio, Ferrari and Fiat, to mention some, for children to make bracelets or necklaces, while providing road safety instruction in FCA's developing markets and required regions. Each child will make bracelets, accessories for themselves and their family members. In developing countries we calculated 1 pack with 40 beads for each child = 1 Family = 5½ persons. Far more efficient than distributing reflective hats, backpacks or vests, to just one person.
Use of recycled and recyclable materials
We would like to explore the possibility that FCA Group's different production sites participate in the production of reflective beads. By recycling their existing scrap and leftovers, we could recycle existing materials into safety reflectors and save lives. By recycling plastic FCA Group's companies could get a Certified Emission Reduction (CER) that can be sold later.
In collaboration with KNPO, FCA Group could create a global campaign calling for action to save people’s lives on the roads, supporting the Global Road Safety Agenda of the United Nation and WHO. The FCA Group will clearly be engaged globally on the highest level.

Charitable contributions can qualify as tax deductions against U.S. based business’ annual tax liability. However, the IRS tax code is complex and it’s important to note that not all contributions can be considered legitimate deductions, therefore we recommend you to talk to your financial department.
- Monetary contributions – Cash or other monetary contributions may be tax deductible as long as they are not set aside for use by a specific person. Generally, you can deduct up to 50 percent of your adjusted gross income, but 20 percent and 30 percent limitations may apply (refer to Limits on Deductionsfrom the IRS).
- Donations of property, including business inventory – These are also considered a valid tax deduction. Donations are evaluated and deducted based on their fair market value (basically what a consumer would pay for these goods in an open market). Deductions are limited in most cases to 50 percent of your adjusted gross income.
