Our commitment: In order to provide society and coming generations with a future worth living in, we have to go beyond the bare avoidance and reduction of emissions. The Volkswagen Group is committed to make a difference for people and the environment.

Our People

regenerate+ dimension: our people

Our commitment: The strength of the Volkswagen Group is inevitably linked to the collective efforts of its employees who work for us across the globe. This means we can only achieve our ambitious goal of a comprehensive, sustainable transformation through joint efforts. It is, however, a path that will benefit all.


regenerate+ dimension: society

Our commitment: The Volkswagen Group bears great responsibility toward society, the environment, our people, and our partners. From this, we derive our ambition to generate a positive impact within the value chain and beyond.


regenerate+ dimension: business

Our commitment: The holistic approach of regenerate+ is accelerating the business models of the Volkswagen Group. New business areas, new products, services and financing models provide the impetus for this.
