We continuously strive to improve our sustainability performance and further develop our strategy, defining it more precisely.
To this end we have established a Group-wide organization which combines unit-specific sustainability activities and ensures systematic consideration of stakeholders’ requirements. In our sustainability management, we place a special focus on the lasting and effective establishment of a culture of integrity.
Sustainability management is a continuous improvement process that can be realized successfully only in cooperation with our stakeholders. The aim is to find out what expectations stakeholders have of us as a global automotive group and what demands we place on ourselves in order to be successful on a sustained basis. In this process we concentrate our sustainability management on fields of action that are significant for our stakeholders and for our company.
Our business activities affect the interests of many people in various countries and regions. We therefore seek dialog with all stakeholders in order to exchange experiences and address controversial topics without preconditions. Thus, stakeholder dialog is a key element of the cross-unit management responsibilities in our sustainability strategy.
