The European Working Group on Supply Chain Sustainability was formed in 2012 in order to - in addition to own efforts - work together to collaborate in improving supply chains sustainability. Before 2012 the Working Group already existed as an informal learning network.
The mission of the Working Group is to work together to improve the social, ethical and environmental performance of automotive supply chains. It is of great importance to this working group of responsible automotive manufacturers 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 their industry.
- Share experiences and information on sustainability issues in the automotive supply chain.
- Develop and apply common tools.
- Work together on common projects in order to improve sustainability in supply chains.
- Send a common message to their supply chains concerning sustainability activities and requirements.
