Sustainability for the automotive sector

Driving forward sustainability in the automotive sector

The automotive industry is racing to transform itself from the old fossil fuel centric model into a new world of electric mobility and sustainability. With increasing pressure from investors, shareholders, regulators and customers, organisations must have a credible and robust sustainability plan and be able to demonstrate progress.

A challenging road ahead

This transformation is a challenge for an industry that traditionally uses huge amounts of energy, metals, plastics and chemicals; all of which have their own sustainability and carbon impacts. And all this against a backdrop of the global pandemic, inflation, supply chain disruption and energy price rises.

An important, and growing issue for the automotive sector is the move to improve the sustainability across the value chain – this includes both environmental and social impacts. As natural resources become more and more scarce, sustainable value chains are becoming increasingly important for the automotive industry. Improving the circularity of products and components along the value chain is critical.

With markets, regulations and your competition moving quickly, urgent action must be taken to embed sustainability into your operations, products and supply chain. The transition is complex, and there is no one size fits all. Managing the situation requires data, expertise and a robust strategy to drive execution and engage stakeholders.
