Abstract: The sustainability is now considered as a paradigm shift. Challenging business environments, less availability of resources and much more competitive markets force business to rethink about the offerings in order to sustain for a greater time. Organizations across the globe are tending to apply many sustainability measures in order to make the business balance and holistic. The audit of such sustainability-oriented efforts is done by various methods like Carbon Credits, Dow Jones sustainability index etc. The most popular method of audits is Global Reporting Initiative (GRI). GRI evaluates the organization on all the three Aspects-Economic, Environmental and Social sustainability. The research papers discuss the sustainability audits in light of Automobile sector and also furnishes the analogy between the efforts of the five passenger vehicle Manufacturing Units (PVMU) reports.
