Mitsubishi Heavy Industries is the first Asian company to join the initiative. The Charter of Trust was launched at the Munich Security Conference in February 2018 and calls for binding rules and standards to build confidence in cybersecurity and further promote digitization. In addition to the Munich Security Conference, the following companies also joined: AES , Airbus, Allianz, Atos , Cisco , Daimler, Dell Technologies, Deutsche Telekom, Enel , IBM, NXP , SGS , Siemens, Total and TÜV SÜD. The National Cryptologic Center (CCN) from Spain and the Graz University of Technology followed Germany's Federal Office for Information Security (BSI) as associate partners on February 15, 2019.

The Charter aims to establish state-of-the-art general minimum cybersecurity standards. The partners drafted minimum requirements to ensure the cybersecurity of digital supply chains in October 2018 and now plan to introduce these requirements into their own global supply chains.
