People and the environment are the automotive industry’s most important resources. We strongly feel that companies should fulfil their social responsibilities and obligations to realize a healthy and harmonious development between enterprises and employees, enterprises and society, and enterprises and the environment.

Drive Sustainability has a set of common guidelines – Global Automotive Sustainability Guiding Principles (Guiding Principles) – outlining expectations for suppliers on key responsibility issues including human rights, environment, working conditions, business ethics, health and safety and responsible supply chain management.

The Guiding Principles represent the global strategy and base of all activities. The same set of principles are used by automotive companies in other regions of the world like North America and China.
