2018 Automotive Sustainability Report

Sustainability lies at the heart of the UK automotive industry. From improving the environmental performance of vehicle and component manufacture, to the investment in the skills of employees, right through to the remanufacturing or “second life” of components and the recycling of end-of-life vehicles, the industry seeks to ensure it is a model of industrial sustainability.

SMMT’s 19th Sustainability Report, which reviews data from 2017, has seen a further increase in the number of signatories and for the first time includes a materiality assessment, examining current, emerging and future priorities of vehicle manufacturers and suppliers, as well as other stakeholders, including government advisors, academics, charities, environmental NGOs and trade unions.
