As a key player in the automotive sector, Groupe Renault works with thousands of companies and people around the world every day.
We have put in place an active sustainable purchasing policy encompassing respect for human rights, labor law, compliance, safety, quality and the environment. We ask our suppliers to enforce these guiding principles and to deploy them across their supply chain.
With respect to mineral ores, we are continuously reinforcing our day-to-day efforts to prevent risks relating to human rights, as part of a policy specific to this field, based on the guidelines set out by the OECD.
At the same time, Groupe Renault has put in place a more general approach aimed at reducing the impact of our industry on the environment, particularly by re-using batteries and recycling mineral ores. We have also taken a stake in Ionic Materials, a US firm developing materials for cobalt-free batteries.
