Change in the Automotive Industry is a Given — How to Prepare and Respond is Not

The survey is an opportunity to make your voice heard — to take part in an ongoing conversation on industry issues, and to impact the actions we take at AIAG and within the automotive community.  

This survey takes an in-depth look at current and emerging corporate responsibility/sustainability (CR/S) issues. If CR/S is not a part of your job responsibility, please forward the survey to the appropriate manager.

Completing the survey takes about 15 minutes. All information provided will be held confidential and shared anonymously as part of aggregate data that will inform the development of industry programs. An advance copy of the report will be made available to those who provide their e-mail address when prompted at the conclusion of the survey.

In addition to doing your part to support corporate responsibility and sustainability in the automotive supply chain, here’s something else to feel good about: For every survey completed, AIAG will make a charitable contribution to UNICEF, an international organization benefiting global childhood education and humanitarian efforts.

Thank you in advance for taking part in the survey. Click here to get started. Please note: If the survey won't load, please close and reopen your browser and click the survey link again.
