Supplier sustainability rating
Adient’s supplier sustainability rating measures sustainability activity and compliance, and impacts a supplier’s scorecard as well. Every year suppliers are required to complete the 17-question on-line survey that delves into practices surrounding human rights, working conditions, employee safety and energy management.
1. Suppliers will need their vendor identification number, location on their global supplier scorecard. Suppliers can access their global supplier scorecard through the Global Supplier Scorecard database.
2. When you complete the sustainability rating, print a copy of your survey results for your records.

International Materials Data System (IMDS)
The IMDS (International Material Data System) is an internet-based database established by automotive OEMs to track and record chemical ingredients of parts and assemblies across the entire automotive supply chain. IMDS is the global standard to collect, maintain, analyze and archive all materials used for automobile manufacturing. All Adient suppliers that provide direct material production parts and or assemblies are expected to comply with IMDS requirements.
IMDS submissions must include all materials present in the finished product. All basic substances must be reported. Process chemicals, by products of reaction and contaminants listed in the GADSL as D or D/P must be reported as soon as the concentration in the end product exceeds the defined threshold.
