Industry Focus

Manufacturing

Manufacturers are leading the development of sustainable materials, transportation, energy, and other industrial technologies to meet global needs. At the same time, industrial supply chains, operations, and products face growing sustainability expectations from investors, governments, and other stakeholders.

Manufacturing Overview


How We Work


We help global manufacturers engage with customers, communities, and stakeholders on locally relevant issues to develop sustainable growth strategies for rapidly changing conditions. We have worked with companies, including Boeing, GE, Michelin, and Nissan, at their headquarters and around the world to develop and implement sustainability strategies, understand and address human rights issues, and gauge the implications of climate change. Whether strengthening local reporting and stakeholder engagement in growth areas like Brazil, China, and Myanmar, or developing global sustainability policy and governance frameworks, BSR members benefit from ourexperience, expertise, and business acumen.
