Our success is based on the qualification and personal commitment of approximately 592,500 people who are employed by the Volkswagen Group.
A company will only be able to survive in the face of international competition if it has a top team, characterised by a high level of competence, dedication, inventiveness and fitness.

Competence is created from good basic training and a life-long willingness to learn. Dedication ideally means entrepreneurial thinking and actions, not only by management staff. Active contribution of ideas and participation are expected of all members of staff.

The success factors are encouraged in our human resources processes and in projects.

Note on fuel consumption and CO2 values in the
Volkswagen Corporate Website

Wolfsburg, November 17, 2015

As we informed you in the press release entitled "Internal investigations at Volkswagen identify irregularities in CO2 levels" issued on November 3, 2015, and "Next step in clarifying the CO2 issue" issued on November 13, 2015, the CO2 values and therefore the fuel consumption data published by Volkswagen for some models are incorrectly stated. We are currently reviewing which models are specifically affected. The list of affected models for model year 2016 compiled according to current knowledge is available here.

Please take into consideration that the CO2 emissions and therefore the fuel consumption data published on the are therefore subject to reservation until this issue has been resolved and may be incorrectly stated.

In cooperation with the responsible authorities, Volkswagen is doing everything in its power to clarify the further course of action as quickly as possible and ensure the correct classification and presentation of the CO2 and fuel consumption values for the vehicles affected.

Thank you for your understanding.
