VAN BUREN TOWNSHIP, Mich., June 23, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Visteon Corporation (Nasdaq: VC) today introduced its 2022 Corporate Sustainability Report (CSR), which highlights the company’s commitment to drive business results in a socially responsible manner and uplift the communities in which it operates. Visteon is a global technology leader serving the mobility industry, dedicated to creating a more connected, clean and safe driving experience. The report covers priorities, product innovations and people initiatives based on 2021 metrics and actions.
“Just as important as what we do, is how we do it. Our Beliefs, Values and Leadership Principles remain at the forefront and guide us to always do the right things in the right way,” Sachin Lawande, President and CEO, Visteon, said.
In 2021, Visteon committed to set longer term greenhouse gas (GHG) emission reduction targets aligned with the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi) and reduce total energy and water consumption, solid waste and CO2 emissions from 2019 levels.
The company’s roadmap to reduce its GHG emissions includes the following actions and initiatives:
“Visteon is on track with its environmental goals and is still targeting further improvement with regard to greenhouse gases, energy consumption, waste reduction and water consumption,” stated Sachin Lawande, President and CEO, Visteon.
Visteon’s new product innovations focus on three trends that are defining the future of the industry:
Visteon’s first-to-market smart wireless battery management system (smartBMS) solution is the centerpiece of a growing electrified product line that will help automakers reduce the complexity, weight and materials used to manufacture electric vehicles and enhance the ownership experience for their customers.
Visteon’s advanced display technologies can employ power consumption significantly lower than any other automotive display technology currently available to help support the growth of the EV market. MicroZone™, for example, is Visteon’s first-of-its-kind solution to the demand for a high-quality, premium experience display that also meets stringent automotive environmental and reliability requirements.
The company’s fourth-generation SmartCore™ cockpit domain controller brings Android-based infotainment ranging from maps and parkin to charging locations and other information together seamlessly across multiple displays in the cockpit for a more connected, personalized and safe driving experience.
“People around the world are eagerly waiting for electric vehicles that will reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Visteon’s core technologies are helping our OEM customers bring those electric vehicles to market,” shared Sachin Lawande, President and CEO, Visteon.
The CSR report outlines Visteon’s commitment to aggressive policies, procedures and goals to keep its 10,000 employees in 18 countries safe. In 2021, both the company’s recordable injury and lost time case rates were zero.
Diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) is a key component of the Visteon employee experience. Visteon actively invests in the development of the next generation of business leaders and innovators through a variety of professional development programs. In 2021, for example, Visteon graduated its first class of nearly two dozen women in the Momentum: Elevating Women in Leadership program. The year-long professional development program was designed to help the company cultivate a strong pipeline of female leaders. Visteon named its second class of Momentum participants in May 2022.
As a global organization, Visteon harnesses the power of employees’ varied backgrounds, cultures and experiences to create a competitive edge and support the communities in which they live and work. In 2021, some of those efforts included:
“In all aspects of our business, we strive to balance profitable growth with the need to protect our environment and support the global communities where we have an invested presence,” said Sachin Lawande, President and CEO, Visteon.
