To our stakeholders
Volkswagen does not tolerate any breaches of the law or other wrongdoing. We deeply and sincerely regret the behavior that gave rise to the diesel crisis. Such misconduct runs contrary to all of the values that Volkswagen stands for. We have taken significant steps to strengthen accountability, extend transparency and prevent something like this from happening again.
The trust of our customers, our shareholders, partners, employees and the general public is our most important asset. The Group has substantially elevated its commitment to working ethically and with integrity. Volkswagen can and will set an example in the years ahead as to how a large, global company embodies and takes its social responsibility seriously.
