ESG (Environmental, Social, and Governance) Report

ESG in Automotive

Sustainability is inexorably tied to the future of the automotive industry

While its environmental impact has long been seen as a challenge, social and governance factors are now coming to the fore, particularly as connected, autonomous, shared, and electric (CASE) megatrends transform the industry. Automakers are increasingly marketing sustainability as central to their value propositions, reflected by the trend in 2020 by several to integrate their financial and sustainability reporting methods. A significant challenge is managing the transition profitably, without which innovation and survival won’t be possible, no matter the strength of ESG credentials. The complexity of ESG is that it is not zero-sum.
