- Sustainability Reporting

Reporting is an increasingly important component of corporate responsibility practices in the automotive industry. Yet manufacturers and suppliers both face the challenge of inconsistent standards for requesting and reporting information throughout the supply chain. To address this issue, leading OEMs, such as General Motors, Ford, and Chrysler, have adopted a consensus-based, globally recognized Sustainability Reporting Framework developed by the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI). The Framework allows users to produce reports on their environmental, social and governance performance in a consistent and comparable manner.

AIAG formally endorsed this approach for the automotive industry by becoming a GRI Organizational Stakeholder in 2012, joining GRI's growing global network of organizations and companies that are committed to transparency, accountability and sustainable development. To support adoption of the GRI Sustainability Reporting Framework among its members, AIAG is offering a series of GRI trainings, and working with its members to form a collective voice of influence on the next series of GRI indicators, automotive sector supplements, and other initiatives. AIAG is also encouraging OEMs and Tier 1 suppliers to collaborate on initiatives that will use the GRI model to address benchmarking of surveys, thus reducing the proliferation of requests that presently burden companies in the industry.
