Visteon is driving to be the world’s leading provider of cockpit electronics products for global automakers. While pursuing this goal, we are equally committed to upholding the highest standards of corporate responsibility across the 18 countries where we operate.
This report highlights sustainability activities and performance across Visteon’s global operations in 2015, and outlines our 2016 targets. Visteon achieved 10-year bests in virtually every key sustainability metric in 2015, including employee safety, energy usage, emissions, waste reduction and water conservation – both in raw numbers and also in relation to revenue.
Visteon’s emphasis on employee safety paid off in 2015, as the company recorded its lowest-ever occupational injury rates. Our lost-time case rate of 0.03 placed Visteon within the top 5 percent of all industries – and is considered best-in-class for automotive and manufacturing companies. More than 90 percent of our global facilities had zero lost-time injuries in 2015, as our employees fully embraced a no-injury mindset.
Through corporate contributions and the generosity of our employees, Visteon helps improve the lives of thousands each year. Visteon employees display a caring spirit across all corners of the globe – from getting involved in science, technology, engineering and math education in the U.S.; to raising money and volunteering in support of cancer research in the UK; to donating funds and school supplies for underprivileged students in China; to supporting relief efforts following devastating floods in India.
I am proud that as Visteon has transformed to a global technology leader, the company and our 11,000 employees around the world have remained dedicated to the highest standards of corporate sustainability.
