The influence of sustainability has revolutionized the automotive industry. Although the industry has made countless improvements in this arena, it is still far from being sustainable. To date the majority of sustainability efforts have focused on environmental friendliness, both of the cars and the respective production processes. However, in order for an automotive corporation to be truly sustainable in the future all business decisions will need to be driven from the view point of sustainability. A true sustainable solution must be logical economically, socially, and environmentally, both locally and globally within the corporation. This approach requires the consideration of the following four domains: mobility system, phases of the extended life cycle, level of value creation, and sustainability perspective. This paper aims to create a structure to allow cause and effect mapping between decisions made at all points in the vehicle life cycle at all levels of value creation within a given mobility system in order to determine its true sustainability. This structure allows decision makers to comprehensively understand, evaluate, and compare products, processes or business alternatives in terms of their sustainability. This will in effect facilitate localized decisions that make sustainable business sense locally and globally within the corporation, and ultimately within the automotive industry.
