We endeavor to achieve excellence, innovation and performance in a sustainable manner and success depends on the commitment of our entire global supply chain.

Our Mission

The mission of the partnership is to work together to improve the social, ethical and environmental performance of automotive supply chains. It is of great importance to this partnership of responsible automotive manufacturers that the individuals making vehicles, components, or providing services, are afforded decent working conditions and are treated with dignity and respect, while minimising the environmental impact of their industry.

Our common direction
  • Share experiences and information on sustainability issues in the automotive supply chain.
  • Develop and apply common tools.
  • Work together on common projects in order to improve sustainability in supply chains.
  • Send a common message to our supply chains concerning sustainability activities and requirements.
