Alison Jones will cover Stellantis’ “Dare Forward 2030” strategy at “Sustainability: Competing in Today’s Environment” presented by MEMA’s Center for Sustainability and Advocacy Team.

The MEMA Center for Sustainability and MEMA Government Affairs recently announced that Jones, senior vice president, global circular economy at Stellantis, will be a speaker at its Sustainability Summit on Aug. 15.

Jones will cover how the circular economy is a core pillar of the organization’s “Dare Forward 2030” strategy, which aims to achieve carbon net zero by 2038.

In “Remanufacturing: Our Industrial and Innovative Scale Up,” Jones will highlight how Stellantis – through its SUSTAINera label – continues to grow sales through product range, customer offers and worldwide expansion. SUSTAINera is a new label for Stellantis parts and accessories that indicates a saving of up to 80% materials and 50% of non-emitted CO2 as compared to their equivalent new parts, representing the organization’s promise to provide sustainable, transparent and affordable products and services to its customers.

Jones’ session will touch on how Stellantis is working with innovative and industrial partners, suppliers and in-house teams to grow all aspects of its “4R” strategy: Reman, Repair, Reuse and Recycle.

Jones has been leading the Global Circular Economy Business Unit since June 2022. In this position, Jones gives new impetus to the circular economy business – one of the core pillars of Dare Forward 2030 strategic plan for Stellantis, whose brands include RAM, Jeep, Chrysler and Dodge. Prior to her current role, Jones was senior vice president and Stellantis Group UK managing director for Abarth, Alfa Romeo, Citroën, DS Automobiles, Fiat, Fiat Professional, Jeep and Peugeot.

Jones has held a variety of senior-management positions within the automotive industry, moving between different disciplines over 21 years in strategic and operational roles, driving results through large teams, often in uncertain and chaotic environments.

“We are happy to welcome Alison Jones to the speaker lineup at ‘Sustainability: Competing in Today’s Economy,’” said John Chalifoux, chief sustainability officer for MEMA, The Vehicle Suppliers Association. “This OEM Customer Session will provide valuable insight into the Stellantis circular economy.”

“Sustainability: Competing in Today’s Environment” is a full-day conference co-hosted by the MEMA Center for Sustainability and MEMA Government Affairs. The event will bring together executive leaders, customers, sustainability professionals and government experts to discuss the burning platforms in sustainability and ESG. Topics will include forced-labor prevention; funding opportunities available through the federal government; customer requirements and reporting; and executive and customer perspectives. 

Executives and professionals from all MEMA member companies – automotive and commercial vehicle, original-equipment and aftermarket – who manage aspects of sustainability and ESG within their organizations are invited to attend. The event will be held on Aug. 15 at the Michigan State University Management Education Center in Troy, Michigan.

MEMA members and non-members are invited to attend. Discounted pricing is available for multiple attendees from the same MEMA member company.
