Working at Volkswagen

The value of a company is not determined by buildings and machines, nor by its bank account. What is valuable in a company are simply the people who work for it and the spirit in which they do so.
Heinrich Nordhoff
Volkswagen General Director (1948-1968)

We want to be a model company

Think of an environmental role model. Did you think of us at Volkswagen? Probably not. But that’s exactly what we have done in the field of the environment. We want to deliver mobility for everyone and, as we do so, minimise the impact on the environment. That’s why we are again setting ourselves very ambitious targets for reducing the environmental impact of production. By 2025, vehicles and components are to be produced in a way that is 45 percent more environmentally compatible than in 2010, the reference year for the current Think Blue environmental programme.

We have already reached our first target of producing our vehicles 25 percent more sustainably by 2018 before the date set. With Think Blue. Factory., Volkswagen launched the first holistic programme for environmentally sustainable production.  5,300 measures to reduce emissions and use resources more efficiently have been implemented worldwide since then. 16 existing paint shops have been optimised and the base load energy consumption of the plants during non-production times fell by 15 per cent on average. Several locations are taking 100 per cent of their power requirements from renewable sources since the start of the programme, among them our plants in Zwickau and Chemnitz (Germany).
