Corporate Responsibility

The automotive industry supply chain has a high degree of complexity, therefore we believe in the benefits of a common approach and message. The following guidelines clearly describe our minimum expectations towards business ethics, working conditions, human rights and environmental leadership for our suppliers as well as their subcontractors and suppliers. We expect that suppliers will uphold these standards and cascade them down their supply chain.

These guidelines are based on fundamental principles of social and environmental responsibility that are compliant with local law, consistent with international expectations and are supported by the sponsoring automotive manufacturers. Individual manufacturers may have their own standards, codes and policies that supersede these guidelines.

The Automotive Industry Guiding Principles create a platform from which industry can align and act with a common approach. At AIAG, we convene OEMs and suppliers to determine the issues of greatest importance to the supply chain, and the tools and resources needed to increase industry effectiveness.
