VISION AND MISSION

Vision

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.

Mission

Our mission is to drive sustainability throughout the global automotive supply chain by integrating sustainability in the overall procurement process.

We are a leadership automotive partnership based on strong collaboration, innovation and impact. We bring together global automotive companies that commit to improve both its own performance and that of its supply chain.

As the automotive industry has complex value chains and a deep structured supplier base, we work together to send a common message to our supply chains concerning sustainability activities and requirements. We feel having a common approach to sustainability benefits the supplier.

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.
