VISION AND MISSION
Our vision is to lead the transformation towards a circular and sustainable automotive value chain.
We endeavour to achieve excellence, innovation and performance in a sustainable manner. People and the environment are the automotive industry’s most important resources. It is of great importance for us 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 the industry and promoting business integrity.
Our mission is to drive sustainability throughout the automotive industry by leveraging a common voice and by engaging with suppliers, stakeholders and related sectors on impactful activities.
We are a leading partnership that is based on strong collaboration, innovation and impact. Drive Sustainability brings together global automotive companies that commit to improve both their own performance and that of their supply chain by integrating sustainability in the overall procurement process.
The automotive industry has complex value chains and a deep structured supplier base. We work in a harmonised approach towards supply chain sustainability to leverage our individual company efforts and develop joint solutions to our common challenges.
We understand supply chains are global, therefore we act as a strong promoter of standardization and harmonization of supply chain approaches to achieve long term impact, while also maintaining independent supply chain management.
To succeed we rely on commitment from the entire supply chain. We strive for collaboration and work closely with our suppliers and other stakeholders to achieve our mission. Success, impact and scale are possible only if all actors join forces.
We are open about our achievements and challenges alike.
Our collaboration/work is based on compliance with competition law.
