Community and Sustainability.
Because it’s not just about us.
Our passion and dedication to building a sustainable business extends from our plants and products and suppliers to our people and the places we call home. As a leader in the global automotive community, it falls to us to help create a safer, greener, more socially responsible place for us all. And it’s a duty we take very seriously.
At Delphi Technologies, a better world emerges not from doing things right, but from doing the right things. That’s why “be the difference” isn’t simply something we say. It’s who we are, fueling the actions we take to make a positive impact on the world.
We give back. We pay it forward. We make it count. We make it last. It’s just that easy. And always that hard.
Our guiding principles.
Creating a better world doesn’t just happen. It’s a planned pursuit that must be anchored to a set of principles that guide people in their efforts. At Delphi Technologies, we start with our values. They are:
We then layer in three key pillars within our corporate sustainability framework.
Health & Safety.
We must ensure people’s wellbeing. With our management systems and policies, we consistently outperform other companies in global safety. But safety is not simply about statistics. It’s about protecting our people. We will not be satisfied until we achieve - and sustain - zero accidents at all our facilities.
A healthy planet matters. That’s why we’re committed to actions that restore and preserve the environment, including reducing waste, conserving resources, recycling materials and inventing technologies that minimize - and ultimately eliminate - vehicle emissions.
Business success must also be accompanied by social success. We have an obligation to engage in ethical practices that influence our decisions and guide our outcomes to the benefit of society at large.
Using these as our foundation, we train our people on how we comply with our policies and standards. Better, we encourage them to move past minimum expectations and into maximum experiences. To make it count you have to engage. You have to care. You have to act. Our teams welcome the difference.
We also work with our customers and suppliers to ensure their standards and ours align, particularly in areas of environmental protections, human rights and ethical business practices. We will not win when others lose through companies that choose to cut corners or look the other way.
Finally, we put into place at the highest levels of leadership, the checks and balances that keep us not just accountable, but honest and humble.
Our report card.
To keep track of our performance we measure - both through ongoing internal reporting tools and external audits - our progress toward our health and safety, environmental and social progress goals. Recent accomplishments include:
- A 50% improvement in overall safety in the last four years, with a loss work days (LWD) average rate that’s 10-times less than the average European rate among U.S. and European manufacturers.
- A 300% improvement in the last four years in identifying, communicating and problem-solving the sources of small injuries, illnesses and near misses. This has allowed us to significantly advance our prevention measures.
- All of our plants are certified to the Environment Management System ISO14001:2015 standard.
And, in 2019, we’re deploying efforts that include:
- Transitioning all of our plants from the current OSHAS18001 Safety Management System to the new Safety Management System ISO45001 standard.
- Engaging outside rating services such as EcoVadis, CDP Worldwide and Ethisphere to evaluate our efforts and help us improve our processes and practices.
- Implementing an Internal Carbon Pricing mechanism so that each of our sites can identify and invest in the best energy-efficiency initiatives, renewable energy ventures and carbon offset projects in order to meet net carbon neutrality targets.
When it comes to sustainability, we understand we cannot always achieve our goals on our own. To stay current and compliant, we align our efforts to the standards set by several global organizations that make it their mission to create a better world.
Sustainability Accounting Standards Board. The SASB develops sustainability accounting industry standards, which are used to help business communicate financially material information about their environmental, social and governance efforts to investors.
Global Reporting Initiative. The GRI helps businesses and governments understand and communicate their impact on critical sustainability issues such as climate change, human rights and social wellbeing.
Carbon Disclosure Project. The CDP is a non-profit organization that helps businesses and governments measure - and make public - their impact on the environment.
United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. These 17 goals are the blueprint to a better and more sustainable future by 2030. Delphi Technologies is embracing the Decent Work and Economic Growth; Responsible Consumption and Production; and Climate Change goals.
Paris Climate Conference Agreement. This global accord's central aim is to combat the threat of climate change. Under the accord, Delphi Technologies is working to reduce mobile and stationary harmful emission sources, as well as convert to clean energy technologies.
Delphi Technologies is often a stand-out for our health and safety, environmental and social activities. We’re proud that our efforts are recognized by these organizations.
U.S. National Safety Council Excellence Award for Lost Work Day Accidents, 2017.
All our sites have received Excellence Awards for LWD accident rates that are 50% lower than the average of automotive industry rate.
European Agency for Health and Safety at Work, 2018.
Delphi Technologies was selected as Steering Group Member, EU-OSHA, 2018, in recognition for our safety leadership, culture and performance.
Be the difference.
Our people, at every level and location, are driven to make a difference.
