Geely joins CSR Europe’s collaborative Drive Sustainability platform

Geely has recently announced that it has joined the Drive Sustainability (DS) collaborative platform of CSR Europe, the leading European business network for Sustainability and Corporate Responsibility. It joins eleven other manufacturers that are already part of the platform: BMW Group, Daimler Truck, Ford, Honda, Jaguar Land Rover, Mercedes-Benz, Scania, Toyota, Volkswagen, Volvo Car and Volvo Group.

Drive Sustainability aims to “lead the transformation towards a circular and sustainable automotive value chain”. In 2020, DS partners launched a long-term strategy, and expanded its scope, to address four key challenges: sustainable sourcing of raw materials, workforce wellbeing, carbon neutral supply chains and circular value chain. CSR Europe CEO Stefan Crets said:

“We are delighted to welcome Geely Holding Group to Drive Sustainability, CSR Europe’s leading collaborative platform. The sustainability agenda towards 2030 and 2050 is by necessity both a leadership and a collaborative agenda.

Only when leading companies like Geely engage in their value chain and work together with industry peers and other stakeholders can sustainability impact be achieved at scale. Geely’s participation will strengthen the common voice of OEMs worldwide for a circular and sustainable automotive value chain.”


By joining the platform, Geely once again demonstrates its commitment to a carbon-free future. Geely Holding Group currently has several all-electric brands, such as Zeekr, Polestar, Geometry,… as well as other brands that, although not 100% electric, have electric options, such as Lynk & Co, Volvo Cars and Lotus, among others.

Geely has also announced that it will join Drive Sustainability’s Sustainability Assessment Questionnaire (SAQ) and Drive Sustainability’s local network in China (DS China), as well as participating in the development and implementation of new activities within the scope of Drive Sustainability’s long-term strategy.
