June 25, 2013 /3BL Media/ - Our suppliers are essential to the success of our business. Creating tomorrow’s mobility solutions depends on integrating hundreds of thousands of well-designed and manufactured parts and technologies from other innovators. As we grow as a company and create new, innovative, and more energy-efficient products, our supply chain continuously evolves and suppliers become increasingly incorporated into our operations and our strategy.

We are committed to maintaining transparent, respectful, and long-lasting relationships with our suppliers. We are also dedicated to working with our suppliers to help them improve their own CSR performance and grow as successful businesses. The quality of our products and the success of our own business depend on it.

In 2012:

  • For the first time, we provided procurement managers across our enterprise with tools and training that enabled them to complete CSR spot-checks of key suppliers. In this pilot year, they conducted 22 spot-checks.
  • We convened two workshops to help our suppliers further improve their CSR performance.
