2020 Automotive Sustainability Report

The UK Automotive industry generates more than £100 billion in trade annually and is Britain’s biggest exporter of industrial goods, supporting thousands of vital skilled jobs. That success is fuelled by innovation, so automotive is a major investor in R&D – making it crucial to UK plc, and a key partner in helping the UK to reach its ambitious environmental targets.

The automotive industry’s commitment to sustainable business growth and emissions reduction has been another point of continuity through a time of change. This report highlights how the sector delivered on those commitments throughout 2019, and continues to strive to do so, despite myriad challenges from ambitious net zero goals, Brexit uncertainty and, of course, an unprecedented global pandemic.
