ESG (Environmental, Social, and Governance) in Automotive - Thematic Research

This report looks at the emerging trends in ESG (environmental, social, governance) within the automotive sector.

Sustainability is inexorably tied to the future of the automotive industry and is the defining theme of the industry.While its environmental impact has long been seen as a challenge, social and governance factors are now coming to the fore, particularly as connected, autonomous, shared, and electric (CASE) megatrends transform the industry.

Automakers are increasingly marketing sustainability as central to their value propositions, reflected by the trend in 2020 by several to integrate their financial and sustainability reporting methods.A significant challenge is managing the transition profitably, without which innovation and survival won’t be possible, no matter the strength of ESG credentials.

The complexity of ESG is that it is not zero-sum.

This thematic research report takes an in-depth look at the impact of environmental, social, and governance (ESG) factors on the automotive industry.Our analysis includes ESG framework, the trends shaping the ESG theme in automotive, the challenges posed by the theme to the automotive industry.

We also include case studies detailing leaders and laggards in each of the sub-themes of ESG, along with a timeline of past and future milestones.In the companies’ section, we analyse the ESG-specific moves being made by major automakers and suppliers to set out the landscape and see what further trends are emerging.

Finally, ‘Parts and Tires’ and ‘Vehicle Manufacturing’ scorecards highlight leading and lagging companies based on the key themes identified as impacting the automotive sector.

Key Highlights

- Ten important technology and macroeconomic trends that will shape the ESG theme in the automotive sector over the next 12 to 24 months.

- This report is part of our ecosystem of thematic investment research reports, supported by our “thematic engine”.
- The analyst has developed a unique thematic methodology for valuing technology, media and telecom companies based on their relative strength in the big investment themes that are impacting their industry. Whilst most investment research is underpinned by backwards looking company valuation models, thematic methodology identifies which companies are best placed to succeed in a future filled with multiple disruptive threats.
- To do this, the analyst tracks the performance of the top 600 technology, media and telecom stocks against the 50 most important themes driving their earnings, generating 30,000 thematic scores. The algorithms in “thematic engine” help to clearly identify the winners and losers within the TMT sector.
- Our 600 TMT stocks are categorised into 18 sectors. Each sector scorecard has a thematic screen, a risk screen and a valuation screen. Our thematic research ecosystem has a three-tiered reporting structure: single theme, multi-theme and sector scorecard. This report is a Multi-Theme report, covering all stocks, all sectors and all themes, giving readers a strong sense of how everything fits together and how conflicting themes might interact with one another.
