GLRPPR Sector Resource: Material Change: A Study of Risks and Opportunities for Collective Action in the Materials Supply Chains of the Automotive and Electronics Industries

Title:
Material Change: A Study of Risks and Opportunities for Collective Action in the Materials Supply Chains of the Automotive and Electronics Industries

Abstract:
This report gathers, analyses and presents publicly available information on materials commonly used in the automotive and electronics industries. It aims to positively contribute to discussions on responsible sourcing among industry peers and stakeholders by enabling industry wide comparisons of the materials' and main producing countries' environmental, social and governance issues and their importance in the manufacturing of consumer and industrial automotive and electronic products. The scope of the study is intentionally broad. Instead of narrowing the analysis to a few materials and researching their supply chains in detail, Material Change presents a general industry level assessment of many materials with the goal of challenging the reader to broaden their view of multifaceted and interconnected manufacturing supply chains. Similarly general in presentation are the environmental and social information and economic and governance indicators for countries identified as top producers of the materials.
