Supply Chain Disruption Supply chain visibility is key to identifying and mitigating sustainability risk and impacts and achieving proactive avoidance. We utilize an industry-leading, in-house customized supply chain visibility tool that integrates GM plants, Tier I suppliers, reported Tier II suppliers and logistics nodes. This tool gives our organization the capability to map geographic locations and relationships across the global GM supply chain. The tool also incorporates 24/7 monitoring and global incident mapping of supply chain disruptions and potential human rights issues including those affecting members of our supply chain worldwide. Through our monitoring process, GM can identify suppliers potentially involved in human rights events. If identified, GM’s Supply Chain Risk Management Team reacts swiftly to notify the appropriate GM global supply chain crisis response teams. These crisis teams are then able to work cross-functionally with Tier I suppliers and GM’s functional purchasing, logistics and engineering teams to respond. This collaboration enables GM to mitigate any human rights or sustainability risks potentially identified. How We Monitor & Manage Supply Chain Risks • Senior leadership review at least four times per year • Cross-functional meetings • Board Risk & Cybersecurity Committee • Risk Advisory Council • Quarterly risk dashboard updates • Annual CEO business unit reviews • Annual global risk assessment • Senior Leadership Team interviews Supply Chain Monitoring • Use innovative tools and real-time data analysis to monitor catastrophic events (e.g., earthquake, hurricane) and isolated disruptions (e.g., factory fire, labor strike). • Report all potential impacts to regional command center. • Receive information on suppliers and supply chain tiers through third-party services. • Factor risk scores into sourcing process. • Develop mitigation plan for high-risk areas.
