Integrity and Compliance

Integrity - Doing the right thing

The success of the Volkswagen Group, of which Audi form part of - is underpinned by honesty and integrity on the part of all of our employees. By acting in accordance with national and international laws and regulations, internal policies, guidelines and voluntary commitments, we always repay the considerable trust shown in the Audi brand by our customers, business partners and stakeholders on a daily basis. An ethos of integrity, irreproachable conduct and fair dealings with each other are not merely something we take for granted – these values are deeply rooted in our brand identity. Upholding and further strengthening our system of values is one of the main duties of our company.

We drive and accelerate our business by living and breathing the Volkswagen Group Principles - which defines our value based behaviours.
Volkswagen Group Principles


For the Volkswagen Group, compliance is adherence to legal requirements, internal corporate policies, ethical principles, and self-imposed values for the protection of the company and its brands. In the long term, a company can only be successful if it acts with integrity, complies with statutory provisions worldwide, and stands by its voluntary undertakings and ethical principles, even when this is the harder choice. We remain committed to this principle and compliance must be second nature to all Volkswagen Group employees.

The section further explores the following compliance topics:
• Code of Conduct for Employees
• Code of Conduct for Business Partners
• Social Charter

Code of Conduct for Employees

Volkswagen Group Australia’s Code of Conduct is the key instrument for strengthening employee awareness of correct behaviour, providing support, and guidance, and finding the right contact persons for consultation and advice. The focus is on the responsibility of each individual employee to comply with the rules of ethical conduct.

Code of Conduct for Business Partners

The Code of Conduct for Business Partners embeds our expectations of our business partners conduct with respect to key environmental, social and compliance standards in our contractual agreements. The requirements are based, among other things, on the OECD Guidelines for Multinational Enterprises, the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights and the relevant International Labour Organization (ILO) conventions. The Code of Conduct is, however, not just based on international standards, but also objectives, rules and policies of the Volkswagen Group.
