The automotive industry is one of the largest industries in China, generating over 1.5 million jobs and almost RMB 4 trillion in revenue in 2019. With its numerous production processes and diverse supply chains, investing in Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) in the automotive sector can drive true environmental and social change. Few crises proved this point like the COVID-19 outbreak: during the height of the pandemic, automotive companies pledged substantial donations to relief efforts, showcasing private companies' involvement in society.
In partnership with the China Italy Chamber of Commerce, the German Chamber of Commerce in China | Shanghai is inviting industry-professionals from multinational automotive-enterprises to share their insights on how CSR efforts of the automotive businesses are evolving in light of the pandemic. Topics to be discussed:
- General CSR strategy – before the crisis and now - did the strategy itself change due to the outbreak? How fast was it adapted?
- Did COVID-19 impact any ongoing, long-term projects, or might affect in the future? Is the company able to carry-on with its scheduled projects (for 2020 and beyond) and what are the challenges?
- How did the pandemic affect the annual CSR budget of the company?
- Looking forward, how does the future of CSR for the automotive industry look like? Are there any relevant aspects that will significantly change?
We invite all like minded industry peers and all CSR interested parties to join us for this exciting panel of experience exchange and learnings, followed by a discussion between our panelists and a Q&A session with the audience.
