Strong Supplier Involvement
To reach the Company’s carbon net zero goal, it’s essential to work with suppliers in an effective and cohesive manner. Stellantis includes climate requirements in its purchasing agreements, using a CO2 “cradle-to-gate” performance as a guideline for the contract assignments. This means that all CO2-equivalent emissions – from the extraction of raw material to part production by the suppliers – are considered. For this reason, Stellantis has identified the list of the top CO2 emitting commodities, which accounts for 80% of the CO2 footprint from EV components. For these top commodities, a CO2-equivalent emission maximum is defined as a requirement for being awarded business by Stellantis. It’s a call for collaboration that involves thousands of suppliers in dozens of countries, working with Stellantis towards net zero.
Every day, millions of parts are delivered to Stellantis’ facilities around the world to produce vehicles. Given the logistics complexity – with several independent businesses involved, from shipping companies to freight forwarders – Stellantis needs to be pragmatic to reduce this sector’s impact on the environment. The Company is optimizing transport plans, loads and volumes, developing inter-modality to lessen the impact of our CO2 emissions.
