Responsible Supply Chains
How can risk be mitigated in the automotive value chain?
The automotive value chain is truly global and sources materials from all over world. As a key supplier to the sector, Tata Steel recognises its’ responsibility to source materials responsibly, working in close cooperation with suppliers to address issues such as health and safety, human rights and fair business practices by taking a due diligence approach.
We recognise the benefits of supply chain certification, such as BES 6001, and the power of cross-industry collaboration to leverage supply chain improvement. This is why Tata Steel is a member of the Responsible Mining Initiative (RMI), the European Partnership for Responsible Minerals (EPRM), and a signatory to the International Responsible Business Conduct agreement for metals sector.
In September 2020, all of Tata Steel’s operations in 26 countries signed up to ResponsibleSteel™, as part of Tata Steel's commitment to reducing CO2 emissions, creating jobs and protecting the environment and society.
