The Volkswagen Group Sustainability Report 2016
The Volkswagen Group Sustainability Report has been published every year since 2011, since 2016 the report has been published exclusively online.
The Strategy chapter presents the fundamentals of the Group’s strategy for implementing sustainable development across all its brands. Among other things, we also discuss the Group’s new Strategy 2025, which was presented at the Group’s Annual General Meeting on June 22, 2016 and supersedes the Group’s previous Mach 18 strategy.
The economy, people and environment chapters set out our management approach in each case, before outlining how the various aspects of these topics are implemented.
The key Group-wide indicators and the overarching corporate sustainability roadmap are described in the indicators and goals chapter.
True to the character of a progress report, we aim to focus n the essentials while at the same time communicating a balanced picture of our activities that takes account of all Group brands and companies. Audi, MAN, Porsche, Scania and ŠKODA publish their own sustainability reports, either annually or at two-year intervals.
