  • At Stellantis, we are committed to due diligence to comply with social standards throughout the supply chain. A part of this commitment is ensuring transparency with suppliers and Vine plays a central role on this journey. With Vine, we are able to visualise and get a quick overview of our complex battery supply chain step-by-step all the way to the mine sites. Through Vine, we gain high-quality, validated data that we can turn into knowledge to help inform prioritisation, supply chain management, and stakeholder engagement. The transparency gained through Vine further supports compliance with various regulatory requirements and enables us to take responsibility in our battery supply chain seriously.
