Corporate Responsibility

Guiding PrincipleBanners (2)

WEF Banner 2018To be successful today, the automotive industry and its supply chain partners must contend with an increasing list of expectations from a range of stakeholders (governments and customers) on complex corporate responsibility (CR) issues which factor into investor decisions and customer perceptions.

  • Industry expectations concerning human rights, the environment and business ethics.
  • Increasing global regulation on the use and management of chemicals in the production process
  • Mandates to disclose  use of “conflict minerals” plus the potential for an  expanded scope of new minerals
  • Increasing focus on energy, greenhouse gas emissions and water

Social Responsibility

We endeavor to achieve excellence, innovation and performance in a sustainable manner. People and the environment are the automotive industry's most important resources. For this reason, we are working together to attain the highest standard in business integrity and in the social and environmental performance of our supply chain.

The automotive industry supply chain has a high degree of complexity, therefore we believe in the benefits of a common approach and message towards issues such as human rights, working conditions, and environmental leadership, for our suppliers as well as their subcontractors and suppliers.

Our approach is based on fundamental principles of social and environmental responsibility that are compliant with local law, consistent with international expectations and are espoused by AIAG's member companies.
