The Future of Sustainable Production will be built on the strong economic base of ACES (Automated, Connected, Efficient, Safe & Sustainable) processes that reduce negative environmental impacts while conserving natural energy and resources, while simultaneously reaping the long-term benefits of the automotive business. ACES should be well aligned with the R&D product sustainability strategy with continued sustainability becoming a priority for business in the future!
The automotive industry is a major industrial and economic power worldwide, generating more than 55 million vehicles annually and accounting for almost half of the world’s oil consumption. Manufacturing each vehicle consumes a lot of energy and water even before it reaches the road, and the corresponding amount of CO2 emissions and environmental impacts is important.
As the regional economy grows stronger, RPM MPR (R&D, Procurement, Make, Marketing, Purpose, Return) becomes the identified product strategy for Life Cycle Management. LCM aims to ensure that environmental, health, safety and regulatory (EHS & R) are integrated into the manufacture, manufacture, use and disposal of automotive products.
Sustainable production of vehicles extends beyond the leading organizations into a key strategy that delivers value throughout the automotive chain. Current trends such as zero-emission cars and neutral carbon emissions reflect the growing importance of sustainability in the automotive industry.
Recent research shows that transportation accounts for more than 30 percent of greenhouse gas emissions, making it one of the largest contributors to the effects of climate change and thus under constant pressure from participants looking for a green and sustainable end-of-end model. The emergence of stricter regulations to control massive environmental degradation, waste, air pollution, soil and water pollution leaves no other industry but to establish a sustainable growth path.
The automotive industry has been a pioneer in continuing to thrive ahead of its industry peers, however, the start-up rate is lacking in the growth it sees. Studies show that there has been a steady decline in the number of hazardous emissions per car over the past two decades, however, and that volume growth has not completely eliminated carbon emissions.
This price chain in the industry is not only complex but has also been reduced to a wide range of suppliers and producers from the use of immature mines to “end-of-life” product management. Most of the smaller partners under the price list are SMEs with little or no acquisition in sustainable production models, either due to lack of resources, awareness or sometimes driven by cost pressures to survive in the short term!
