GM Holden to 'Green' Its Supply Chain
Wednesday, 30th April 2008 at 1:36 pm

GM Holden and the World Environment Centre (WEC) are joining forces to launch a program to help GM Holden and its suppliers improve their environmental performance.

GM Holden says the "Greening the Supply Chain" program is aimed at promoting sustainable development at every link of the supply chain in Australia’s automotive industry.

Seventeen of GM Holden’s suppliers from Victoria and South Australia have signed up to be involved in the program.

GM Holden’s Executive Director of Corporate Affairs, Alison Terry, says this is an important opportunity to improve the sustainability of the manufacturing processes in the supply chain.

She says the company certainly expects to generate tangible benefits for our suppliers in terms of improved energy efficiency and water reduction

The WEC is an independent, global non-profit, non-advocacy organisation that advances sustainable development through the business practices of member companies and in partnership with governments, multi-lateral organisations, non-governmental organisations, universities and other stakeholders.

The "Greening the Supply Chain" program was initiated by the WEC and has been launched in Mexico, Brazil, Romania and China where significant energy efficiency, environmental and water conservation improvements were reported.

The program will follow in the footprints of a similar undertaking at GM China that was completed in August 2007.

WEC’s President and CEO, Terry Yosie described the "Greening the Supply Chain" project as a major focus for the WEC.

He says the aim of the GM / WEC partnership is to demonstrate the ability to achieve specific, measurable results that improve competitiveness across the supply chain through the application of sustainable development practices.
