Glossary of Terms in Use in Green Innovation and Sustainable Practices in the Automotive Industry
Develop terminology and definitions specifically for the automotive industry that defines greener and more sustainable materials and practices. The document will provide information and context for how and where the terms are used in the auto sector. In some cases, there may be more than one definition provided as some terms have different meanings in different countries.
Rationale: This document has been developed as an initial effort to provide terms and definitions of interest to the automotive industry for the Green Technology Steering Committee and other interested committees at SAE International. There is no existing document that references terms and definitions for green technology and sustainability in the automotive industry.
