Motherson concluded its first-ever Global Sustainability Summit 2023, a carbon-neutral event.
This aligns with our ambitious goal of becoming carbon net zero across our current global operations by 2040. We offset the carbon emissions generated by participant travel and stay at the event through a verified offsetting project for a wind farm in India. In addition, we pledged our support to a citizenship initiative in Morocco, where the event was held, by donating to the High Atlas Foundation to build a clean drinking water system for rural communities on behalf of all participants. All materials used for the set-up of the summit event, including a sustainable initiatives expo were donated to Maison d’Enfants Lalla Hasnaa, an association that supports children in difficult situations.
The summit had a focussed theme, ‘Embracing accountability and transparency drives our ambition for sustainable growth’, and the event brought together participants from Motherson’s operating business divisions and global functions, including experts and leaders in sustainability, to discuss and prioritise sustainable practices across our organisation.
