Drive Sustainability is an Automotive Partnership between BMW Group, Daimler AG, Ford, Honda, Jaguar Land Rover, Opel/ Vauxhall, Scania CV AB, Toyota Motor Europe, Volkswagen Group, Volvo Cars and Volvo Group.
The Partnership, facilitated by CSR Europe, aims to drive sustainability throughout the automotive supply chain by promoting a common approach within the industry and by integrating sustainability in the overall procurement process.
It is of great importance to these 10 responsible automotive manufacturers that the people 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 and promoting business integrity.
The Partnership builds upon and takes on the previous work carried out by ‘The European Automotive Working Group on Supply Chain Sustainability’ – started in 2012-, with the ambition to evolve from a group of companies working together to a leadership industry initiative, pushing for innovative and impactful approaches to enhance supply chain sustainability.
In the process of collaboration, the partners strongly agreed to work together in compliance with competition law.
