Memberships in Sustainability Initiatives

As a Group, our various memberships ensure that we are active in a range of areas

We are currently involved in the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI), the Extractive Industries Transparency Initiative (EITI), and CSR Europe. As a Group, we have been involved in the largest and most important CSR initiative in the world, the UN Global Compact (UNGC) since 2002, alongside our Audi, MAN and Scania brands. At the end of 2015, we voluntarily offered to suspend our position on the Board of Management of econsense, the Forum for Sustainable Development of German Business, on a temporary basis due to the ongoing debate surrounding emissions.

The same applies to our membership of the World Business Council for Sustainable Development (WBCSD), the UNGC, the Biodiversity in Good Company initiative, and the German Global Compact Network (DGCN). Although our involvement has ceased temporarily, we remain committed to the objectives and principles of these initiatives.
