Engaging our supply base
FCA communicates with our suppliers through a variety of channels to promote innovation, quality, efficiency, best practices and sustainability in forums like Technology Days at our facilities, industry consortiums, town hall meetings, webinars and one-on-one visits in their plants.
In Brazil, for example, one of FCA’s major markets, we promote the "Sustainability and Competitiveness" methodology developed by Fundação Dom Cabral in collaboration with the Social Service of Industry (SESI) organization. Micro and small FCA suppliers in Brazil have access to training, workshops, collaborations and individual advisory services that help them implement sustainability practices to increase their competitiveness.
We also strive to build value through our commitment to diversity and inclusion. Our FCA Code of Conduct highlights our obligation to maintain an inclusive workplace, and extends this obligation to our suppliers. We know that diverse teams spark creativity and help us deliver exceptional products to our global customer base, which leads to sustained growth for all of us.
