Autoneum has joined the worldwide United Nations (UN) Global Compact initiative for corporate sustainability. The Group is thus committed to acting responsibly in accordance with the principles of the UN Global Compact in the areas of human rights, labor, environ-mental protection and anti-corruption.
Corporate sustainability and social responsibility have a long tradition at Autoneum. The Group is committed to becoming the benchmark for corporate responsibility within its industry. This commit-ment is underlined by Autoneum’s Advance Sustainability strategy, which includes a set of ambi-tious environmental, social and ethical targets. Autoneum’s science-based targets to reduce CO2 emissions in the near term have been validated through the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi) and are in line with the Paris Agreement goals to limit global warming to well below 2°C. Autoneum is also continuously improving the environmental performance of its products in accordance with increasing customer demand for sustainable technologies. Furthermore, Autoneum is constantly strengthening its Group-wide governance, risk and compliance framework and expanding its positive impact on global communities, for example through regular screenings of its Compliance Management System or the implementation of social engagement projects in cooperation with local stakeholders at Autoneum locations across the globe.
By joining the world’s largest initiative for sustainable business – the UN Global Compact spon-sored by the United Nations –, Autoneum is strengthening its commitment to sustainable corporate development at its sites worldwide. Launched in 2000, the UN Global Compact brings together more than 13 000 members in 162 countries.
In addition, Autoneum discloses its environmental performance data to its main stakeholders through the Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP) platform. In the 2022 EcoVadis sustainability rating, Autoneum performed above average and received a silver medal.
