Recently the Automotive Industry Action Group hosted a Corporate Responsibility Summit in Novi, Michigan. The topic for the April 29-30 conference was Sustainable Best Practices Throughout the Value Chain. SimpleQuE’s own Deanne Sparr was in attendance to gain a better understanding of the challenges facing the automotive industry and its supply chain partners and how they must collaborate for solutions on business ethics, working conditions, human rights, and environmental leadership. Speakers included automotive industry leaders, university professors, and business consultants. Several discussions throughout the conference consistently pointed to the upcoming changes in the ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 standards and the benefits these management standards can have for companies having a proactive approach to understanding their risk and corporate responsibility. For additional information on the upcoming changes on the ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 standards, look to simpleQuE’s website for training sessions near you.
