Environmental Sustainability

Automotive manufacturers and suppliers are collaborating in efforts to improve the environmental performance of their organizations.  Environmental Sustainability is the ability to maintain rates of renewable resource harvest, pollution creation, and nonrenewable resource depletion that can be continued indefinitely. To achieve this, the auto industry must band together. The challenge and the opportunity is to develop a framework that can be utilized throughout the auto industry at any level within the supply chain.

AIAG is facilitating a common industry approach among members of the automotive industry to incorporate Environmental Sustainability throughout the supply chain—whether through the benchmarking of energy, water and waste reduction or taking a more comprehensive approach to addressing sustainability at an industry level.
