Supporting legislation to drive up standards
Government legislation and regulations are a crucial way to drive up climate, environmental and human rights standards across the auto industry and its supply chains. As InfluenceMap’s research demonstrates, “overall, ambitious climate legislation is a key driver for road transport electrification and a requirement for decarbonization.”
Consequently, as they transition to electric vehicles and set targets for carbon neutrality, automakers should support such legislation as a way to create a level playing field across the auto industry and its supply chains by ensuring that all automakers and their suppliers comply with robust standards on emissions, environmental protection and respect for human rights.
What can automakers do?
- Support legislation and stronger regulations for the decarbonization of the automotive sector and its supply chains
- Support legislation and stronger regulations on human rights and environmental due diligence
- Support stronger regulations and laws governing mining operations in the jurisdictions in which they operate or source supply chain components or materials.
