Sustainability in automotive

Automotive boardrooms increasingly recognize that sustainability is not a burden but an opportunity to transform their organization, processes, products, and services – all while leveraging data.

A bold vision is needed if automotive companies are to achieve carbon-neutral production and an ethical, sustainable supply chain, and to deliver on the whole promise of sustainable mobility.

To achieve this vision, OEMs face a far-reaching transformation that will take them into unfamiliar territory as they seek and acquire new competencies, capabilities, and partnerships. Data, and data sharing, will be vital. And all aspects of the business will be affected: production, sourcing, procurement, IT, after-sales, and more.

The sustainability challenges

Strategic collaboration is essential for OEMs to deliver measurable environmental benefits on a global scale. That means extensive sharing of data and insights from across the industry, achieved through a comprehensive, end-to-end data value chain.

We’re facing a once-in-a-generation opportunity for OEMs. Those that battle the current will soon find themselves struggling to stand their ground. The future of mobility will belong to the leaders that successfully build sustainable operations into their working models. Capgemini is here to help you do just that.

The sustainability solutions

“The automotive industry has made steady progress on sustainability, but a more rapid acceleration towards a systemic approach is now needed.”

Markus Winkler, Executive Vice President – Global Automotive Sector

      Becoming a Renewable Enterprise

      With data-powered insight, innovation, and collaboration, sustainability can evolve from a target to a mindset that drives the Renewable Enterprise.

      The Renewable Enterprise is Capgemini’s vision for the future of sustainable business.

      We can help OEMs identify and adopt technologies that are relevant to their intended use cases and to strategic priorities such as Intelligent Industry, customer first, and enterprise transformation.

      Capgemini and SAP’s work in prioritizing and actioning environmental concerns in our own business reveals that three elements are necessary: the ability to identify meaningful sustainability targets, an end-to-end data value chain, and effective data sharing.

      With these three in place, companies can introduce a culture of continuous improvement and monitor progress towards goals like net zero, waste reduction, and regulatory compliance.
