Automotive giants partner with Manufacture 2030 for sustainable supply chain decarbonization

Leading automotive companies DENSO, Ford, General Motors, Honda, Magna, and Toyota are extending the M2030 platform to nearly 20,000 manufacturing facilities within their supply chain. This collaborative effort further standardizes Scope 3 emissions reporting and carbon footprint reductions on a global scale.

In a significant milestone for the automotive industry, global automakers and suppliers are uniting forces with the support of the Suppliers Partnership for the Environment (SP) and Manufacture 2030 (M2030), underscoring their steadfast commitment to driving sustainable practices and achieving science-based targets.

A key tool in this initiative is the Automotive Climate Action Questionnaire, developed through this collaboration, which streamlines reporting processes and reduces reporting burdens by providing a standardized template. Participating suppliers will gain access to energy-focused best practices, learning tools, and expert networks through our industry leading program, which complement the existing environmental sustainability resources developed through SP.

Speaking on the partnership, Kellen Mahoney, Director at Suppliers Partnership for the Environment said:

Effectively engaging stakeholders across the supply chain is key as companies in the automotive industry work toward long-term decarbonization goals.

This initiative is a testament to the leadership and commitment of our members to develop common tools and educational resources to support companies in the supply chain in building capacity in carbon reporting and reduction within the limits of applicable antitrust laws, while striving to improve efficiencies and identify opportunities to drive continuous improvement.

Martin Chilcott, Chief Executive Officer at M2030 added:

Manufacture 2030 is proud to be at the core of this pivotal movement, helping supply chains spearhead the action needed to drive measurable carbon reductions across the automotive industry.

Cross-sector collaboration is critical to reducing duplication and increasing the efficiency of reporting, enabling more suppliers up and down the value chain to focus efforts on reducing emissions in line with science-based carbon reduction targets.

Additionally, Manufacture 2030 is also working with non-SP members across the automotive sector, including BorgWarner, Oshkosh, and Toyota Boshoku America.
