Change in the automotive industry is a given – but how to prepare for and respond to it is not!

It all began with a question: What corporate responsibility issues will the automotive industry encounter over the next decade? In response to this inquiry, the Automotive Industry Action Group (AIAG) has launched a survey designed to explore both current and emerging trends in corporate responsibility and sustainability (CR/S).

The primary goal of the survey is to collect data on future CR/S issues, which will influence proactive initiatives to begin addressing those matters. Additionally, for each survey completed, AIAG will make a contribution to UNICEF, an international organization benefiting global childhood education and humanitarian efforts.

Once all survey feedback has been received, results will be analyzed and used to conduct final interviews. These last round meetings will serve as an opportunity to gain further insights, clarify interpretations, and prioritize issues.

Survey results will be presented in a comprehensive report, and made available in advance for those who provide their e-mail addresses at the survey’s conclusion.
