London, UK, 1 September 2022 – GKN Automotive, the global leader in drive systems, has expanded Dr. Clare Wyatt’s role to Chief Communications and Sustainability Officer. The new title reinforces the business’ corporate purpose – to drive a cleaner, more sustainable world – and ensures that sustainability is an integral part of GKN Automotive’s commercial strategy.

Dr. Wyatt joined the company as Chief Communications Officer in January 2020. She will now be responsible for enhancing the long-term sustainability of the GKN Automotive business and ensuring it continues to contribute to the decarbonisation of the industry.

The GKN Automotive strategy provides a framework to coordinate the business’ existing sustainability activities. It gives clear, measurable targets, demonstrating the company’s commitment to its purpose of driving a cleaner, more sustainable world. Customers, suppliers and employees were all engaged in a materiality assessment in accordance with best practice principles, to ensure that the strategy addresses the organisation’s highest priority impacts.  It is also aligned with and contributes to several of the UN Sustainable Development Goals.

Looking ahead, GKN Automotive will continue to work towards meeting eight ambitious targets set out as part of the strategy, including having a net zero transition plan with certified science-based targets in place in 2023.

Dr. Clare Wyatt comments: “GKN Automotive has a long history of embedding sustainability into every aspect of its work, not only through our 20-year legacy in eDrive technologies and active role in decarbonising the automotive industry, but also our deep commitment to operating ethically and responsibly whilst contributing to our local communities in more than 50 locations worldwide.

“Our sustainability strategy is a testament to the dedication of many people over many years, and a clear, public statement of our intention to drive a cleaner, more sustainable world.”

Liam Butterworth, CEO of GKN Automotive, comments: “As a global business of 25,000 people, we have a deep responsibility for our employees and for our communities, and we’re clear on our role in addressing the impacts of climate change, one of the defining challenges of our time. As an Executive Team we have all been closely involved in developing the strategy, but Clare’s broader remit now reflects the leading role she has played in its creation and execution so far, and her ongoing commitment to its success.”-
