GM’s participation in the Automotive Industry Action Group helps us shape standards for supply chain responsibility.
Industry collaboration and partnerships, such as the Automotive Industry Action Group (AIAG) are among our primary means of identifying and addressing risks in the supply chain.
As part of this collaboration, for example, we helped develop an AIAG supply chain responsibility training program and work with other OEMs to fund regional supplier workshops on supply chain sustainability and working conditions. In 2017, we served on the steering committee and helped to develop to an updated version of the Automotive Industry Guiding Principles to Enhance Sustainability Performance in the Supply Chain. The revised text encompasses current industry concerns regarding ethics, human rights, working conditions and environmental issues such as air quality and responsible chemicals management. With GM and other OEMs’ help, AIAG also published Global Automotive Sustainability Practical Guidance, a supplementary text designed to help suppliers understand the practicalities of meeting the auto industry’s expectations.
