Volkswagen ID.R Sets New Electric Record On The Nürburgring

Volkswagen has achieved another milestone in electro-mobility: The ID.R, powered by two electric motors, lapped the Nürburgring-Nordschleife in 6:05.336 minutes faster than any electric vehicle before it. Romain Dumas beat the previous record set by Peter Dumbreck in 2017 by 40.564 seconds. With an average speed of 206.96 km/h, the ID.R once again underlined the impressive performance capabilities of Volkswagen’s electric drive. This 500 kW (680 PS) emission-free race car is the racing flagship of the future fully electric ID. product family from Volkswagen.

Mr Herbert Diess, Chairman of the Board of Management of Volkswagen Group said that “The Nordschleife of the Nürburgring is not only the world’s most demanding race track, it is also the ultimate test for production vehicles. The ID.R has mastered this challenge with great distinction and has completed the fastest emission-free lap of all time. As further proof of its impressive performance capabilities, Volkswagen’s e-mobility can now proudly call itself ‘Nürburgring-approved’. I congratulate the team from Volkswagen Motorsport and driver Romain Dumas on the third record for the ID.R”

Within just twelve months, Volkswagen Motorsport has already set three track records with the ID.R. On 24 June 2018, Romain Dumas achieved the absolute track record of 7:57.148 minutes at the renowned Pikes Peak International Hill Climb (USA). Just three weeks later, he achieved a new best time for electric cars of 43.86 seconds at the Goodwood Festival of Speed in southern England. The new record on the legendary Nordschleife has now been added to this successful run.

Topman Volkswagen: dicht bij deal met Ford

Gepubliceerd op 13 jun 2019 om 12:13 | Views: 988

WOLFSBURG (AFN/BLOOMBERG) - Het Duitse autoconcern Volkswagen is dicht bij een deal met de Amerikaanse branchegenoot Ford Motor voor samenwerking op het gebied van elektrische auto's en autonoom rijden. Dat zei topman Herbert Diess van Volkswagen op een bijeenkomst van topmanagers op het hoofdkantoor in Wolfsburg.

Volgens Diess verlopen de gesprekken voorspoedig en kan binnenkort een formele overeenkomst worden getekend. Vorig jaar kwam al naar buiten dat Ford en Volkswagen in overleg waren over samenwerking bij elektrisch en autonoom rijden. Door de krachten te bundelen kan flink worden bespaard op de hoge kosten voor onderzoek en ontwikkeling van deze technologieën.

Diess drong er verder bij de topmanagers op aan om sneller werk te maken van het afslanken van Volkswagen, om zo de tegenwind waar het bedrijf mee kampte beter het hoofd te kunnen bieden. Zo gaat Volkswagen de komende jaren duizenden banen schrappen om kosten te besparen en wordt meer digitaal gewerkt.

Gepubliceerd op 14 jun 2019 om 07:20 | Views: 52

Volkswagen 13 jun
145,85 0,00 (0,00%)

VOLKSWAGEN AG VZO O.N. 13 jun
142,48 +0,30 (+0,21%)

WOLFSBURG (AFN/DPA/BLOOMBERG) - Volkswagen wil zijn vrachtwagen- en bussendivisie, met de merken MAN en Scania, op vrijdag 28 juni naar de beurs brengen. De waardering moet liggen tussen de 13,5 miljard euro tot 16,5 miljard euro. Het zou daarmee een van de grootste beursgangen in Europa van dit jaar worden.

De uitgifteprijs van de aandelen ligt tussen 27 euro tot 33 euro per aandeel. Volkswagen mikt op een opbrengst van wel 1,9 miljard euro. Het Duitse autobedrijf had eerder al gezegd dat de divisie, met de naam Traton, een notering gaat krijgen aan de aandelenbeurzen in Frankfurt en Stockholm. In september vorig jaar lekte voor het eerst uit dat Volkswagen een beursgang voor de activiteiten bestudeerde.

Het concern wil wel een meerderheid van Traton in eigen handen houden. De opbrengst van de emissie kan gebruikt worden voor investeringen in de truckmerken, die kampen met stevige concurrentie van Daimler en Volvo.

Zweedse accufabriek Northvolt start Europese productie accucellen

Artist impression van de Zweedse accufabriek van Northvolt. VW investeert 900 miljoen euro in de fabrikant van accucellen, die daarmee in Zweden kan starten met de productie. Later wordt ook een fabriek in het Duitse Salzgitter gebouwd.

Het Zweedse Northvolt heeft na een investering van Volkswagen van 900 miljoen euro, genoeg kapitaal opgehaald om de bouw van een accucelfabriek voor EV's te starten. Dit melden Northvolt en VW.

Volkswagen participeert voor 20 procent in Northvolt, waarmee ook een joint venture wordt opgezet om in 2023 een ??batterijcelfabriek in Salzgitter, Duitsland, te bouwen. Naast diverse Zweedse investeerders neemt ook BMW deel in Northvolt. De Europese Investeringsbank verstrekt een lening van 350 miljoen euro.

Northvolt meldt dat de bouw van de fabriek in het Zweedse Skellefteå in augustus begint. In eerste instantie gaat de fabriek 16 GWh aan accucellen per jaar produceren. Dit kan later worden opgeschaald.

"Vandaag is niet alleen een geweldige mijlpaal voor Northvolt, het is ook een sleutelmoment voor Europa, dat duidelijk laat zien dat we klaar zijn om te concurreren in de komende golf van elektrificatie", zei Northvolt ceo Peter Carlsson. Europa is op dit moment voor de inkoop van accucellen geheel afhankelijk van fabrieken in China, Japan en Korea.

Volkswagen Deliveries In May Present A Mixed Picture

In May, the Volkswagen brand delivered 512,100 vehicles worldwide, 5.1% fewer than in May 2018. There was a mixed picture in the regions: while deliveries by the brand in North America (+8.6%), South America (+5,4%) and the individual market of Germany (+2.2%) rose, there was, as expected, a fall in Europe (-6.1%). The situation in China remained unchanged. In May, Volkswagen succeeded in increasing its market share in a shrinking overall market.

Volkswagen Sales Board Member Mr Jurgen Stackmann said that “In terms of deliveries, May was a month of highs and lows for Volkswagen. In North and South America, our model policy is being rewarded by outstanding delivery figures. As expected, deliveries in Europe remained under the record value for the previous year, which was boosted by strong advance buying effects as a result of WLTP. This will also be the case in June as we have not had to take any special measures in the first half of the year. In view of the high volume of orders received and an improvement in delivery capabilities for petrol engines, we continue to expect a strong second half for the brand in Europe.”

Deliveries in the regions and markets in May developed as follows:
In Europe, the Volkswagen brand delivered 157,500 vehicles, 6.1% down on the record value for the same month last year. In Western Europe, there was a decrease of 5.5% to 134,500 vehicles.

The highlight was the home market of Germany, where 53,700 vehicles were handed over to customers in May, representing a rise of 2.2%. The SUV models T-Roc, T-Cross and Touareg continue to be very popular.

As in Western Europe, Volkswagen also recorded a fall in vehicle deliveries in Central and Easter Europe. The brand closed the month with a drop of 9.4% to a total of 23,000 vehicles delivered.

The North America region continued to develop positively for Volkswagen. Despite a shrinking overall market, the brand delivered 54,400 vehicles, a rise of 8.6%over May 2018. The USA made the greatest contribution to this success. In the largest single market in the region, the brand delivered 35,700 vehicles, 14.4% more than the same month last year. In May, the Tiguan was once again the most successful Volkswagen model, while the Atlas recorded the strongest month since its market launch. In Canada too, Volkswagen delivered more vehicles than in May 2018 (+6.6%). With a fall of 6% to 10,700 vehicles, Mexico had little impact on this success.

In South America, Volkswagen achieved positive overall results in May. The brand delivered 44,300 vehicles, a rise of 5.4% compared with the same month last year. This was mainly due to the largest single market of Brazil, where Volkswagen handed 36,500 vehicles over to customers in May, a rise of 29.8%. The strength of the Volkswagen brand in Brazil was also sufficient to compensate for the decline of 60.1% to 4,100 vehicles in Argentina. Here, the general economic situation remained difficult, with a severely shrinking overall market.

In the Asia-Pacific region, Volkswagen delivered 245,400 vehicles, down 8.0% on May 2018. The situation in China, the brand’s largest single market, remained unchanged in May. In an overall shrinking market Volkswagen handed 233,900 vehicles over to customers (-7%) and therefore succeeded in increasing its market share.

Volkswagen To Launch New ID.3

Volkswagen will launch production of the ID.3 before the year is out. The compact-class model is the first member of the ID. family a new generation of progressive electric vehicles whose lithium-ion batteries will allow for a range of up to 550 kilometres, making the models perfect for comfortable long journeys. The future owners of ID. models won’t need to worry about the durability of their batteries either, as Volkswagen will guarantee that the batteries will retain at least 70% of their usable capacity even after eight years or 160,000 kilometres.

Mr Frank Blome, Head of the Centre of Excellence in Salzgitter said that “Our goal is to make sure the batteries last as long as the cars.”

Volkswagen will offer the ID. batteries in different sizes. This marks a completely new departure as compared to the approach taken with the brand’s current range of electric vehicles. If an owner of an ID. vehicle is not really interested in being able to drive long distances (for example because they mainly only drive short distances in a city), they can opt for a battery with a relatively low energy content. This, in turn, will make their vehicle less expensive. Those who frequently drive long distances, on the other hand, can choose a larger battery, which will make them more flexible in terms of how they use their car. Depending on the battery and vehicle type in question, a maximum range of approx. 330 to 550 kilometres can be achieved. Volkswagen also designed the batteries to be able to accommodate a charging capacity of up to 125 kW, which is higher than anything achieved to date in the ID.3 segment and ensures fast charging and shorter charging stops.

Volkswagen With New Software Unit

Volkswagen AG intends to group more than 5,000 digital experts together in its new “Car.Software” unit with Group responsibility for software in the vehicle by 2025. The company plans to develop significantly more software in the car and for vehicle-related services itself and to boost the in-house share of software development from the current figure of less than 10 percent to at least 60% by 2025. In future, there is to be one uniform software platform with all the basic functions for all vehicles throughout the Group. This will consist of the vehicle operating system “vw.os” and the Volkswagen Automotive Cloud. By 2025, all new Group models are to run on this software platform. The first vehicle based on this software platform will be the ID.31), which is to make its world debut at the IAA International Motor Show this year. Currently, more than 20,000 potential customers have registered for the pre-booking of this model.

Currently, up to 70 control units with operating software from 200 different suppliers need to be integrated in Volkswagen brand vehicles. In addition, there are different systems with similar functions within the Group, for example for infotainment and navigation. One uniform operating system with the same basic functions for all brands and the use of the Volkswagen Automotive Cloud for all Group models will considerably simplify the situation.

The same applies to the brands’ “digital ecosystems” which will be used for offering the services. All the brands need certain basic services, for example a simple search function for electric charging stations. At Volkswagen Passenger Cars, this service is called “We Charge”. For example, the basic functions “search for nearby stations” or “pay with different modes of payment” could be standardized for all brands.

With its standard software platform, Volkswagen is aiming to achieve significant economies of scale. In future, the vehicle fleet will include more than 10 million fully connected new vehicles per year, which will significantly reduce the cost of integrating the software in each individual vehicle. At the same time, digital ecosystems with a growing number of vehicles connected will become increasingly attractive for new partners and new customers.

By 2025, Volkswagen intends to group more than 5,000 experts in competence areas such as software development, electrical and electronics development, connectivity, automated driving, user experience, cloud architecture and e-commerce together in an agile “Car.Software” unit. They will work in five key areas and develop packages extending across the brands.

The objective is to orient the unit towards the requirements of innovative software development. For this purpose, Volkswagen will be contributing flexible working models, the latest collaboration technologies and agile types of cooperation. This year, about 500 experts are to work together in this agile software unit. The figure is already due to rise to about 2,000 by 2020.

In addition to grouping together experts from brands and companies within the Group, Volkswagen intends to boost the workforce especially by recruiting new specialists and consolidating strategic participations and acquisitions. It is intended to actively present the new software unit and to target IT and tech experts.

Volkswagen & Schwarz Group To Be Strategic E-Partners

Shortly before the market launch of its full-electric car sharing service WeShare in Berlin at the end of June, Volkswagen has concluded a strategic partnership with the Lidl and Kaufland supermarket chains, which are owned by the Schwarz Group. The food retailers are to install 140 public charging stations for the electric vehicles of their customers at 60 Lidl and 10 Kaufland branches in the German capital. Volkswagen is to receive the exclusive right to use the new infrastructure for charging its WeShare fleet overnight outside opening hours, which will make the utilization of the charging stations more efficient. The additional charging points at Lidl and Kaufland outlets will boost the public charging infrastructure in Berlin by almost 20 percent.

Mr Christian Senger, Member of the Board of Management of the Volkswagen Passenger Cars brand responsible for Digital Car and Services, said that “Supermarkets are the filling stations of the future. Charging while you shop is an ideal solution. On average, just 45 minutes at a fast charging station are sufficient for an e-Golf1). Together with Lidl and Kaufland, we are improving charging possibilities for customers and especially for our WeShare fleet. This is the next consistent step by Volkswagen in its efforts to provide area-wide coverage with charging points in public spaces via partnership arrangements.”

Mr Wolf Tiedemann, Head of Central Services, Lidl Deutschland commented that “We want to shape urban mobility. With our many locations on major traffic nodes in Berlin, we can develop a city-wide network of charging stations. During the daytime, our customers will benefit from the growing number of charging points and we will make a meaningful contribution to the mobility transition in Germany.”

Mr Jörg Dahlke, Head of International Construction with Kaufland said that “Car sharing with electric vehicles definitely needs to be supported. This is why we are very pleased to make our existing charging stations available to the WeShare fleet outside our opening hours. This way, more people will benefit from this environmentally compatible technology. This is entirely in line with our own e-mobility strategy.”

Volkswagen’s charging strategy is based on the assumption that about 50% of charging operations for electric cars will be carried out by customers at home in future, 20% at the place of work, 5% along highways and no less than 25% in public spaces. Volkswagen is already equipping private homes and workplaces with charging systems via its recently established subsidiary Elli and is working towards the development of a fast charging network on major European highways under the IONITY umbrella.

Volkswagen Opens Carbon Neutral Data Center In Norway

The Volkswagen Group moved into a new, climate neutral data center at Rjukan in Norway. The facility was set up in just six months in collaboration with the Norwegian partner Green Mountain. The data center will be 100 per-cent powered by hydropower in the future, thus saving more than 5,800 tons of CO2 per year compared to a conventionally operated data center. The maximum output of 2,750 kilowatts will be used by the Volkswagen Passenger Cars and AUDI brands for high-performance servers, on which computer-intensive vehicle development projects are processed. These include the simulation of crash tests and virtual wind tunnel tests. The Volkswagen Group focuses on economic and ecological factors in the development of additional computing capacity. Volkswagen already operates a climate neutral data center in Iceland.

The servers will be used to process computer-intensive vehicle development projects.

In future, the computing power of the new location will be used by the Volkswagen Passenger Cars and AUDI brands for their vehicle development projects. These include simulations of crash tests and virtual wind tunnel tests. Such calculations are not time critical, but very complex and energy intensive. Outsourcing them to external data centers hugely relieves the IT infrastructure at domestic locations.

Importeur Pon op zoek naar Volkswagens die nooit de weg op hadden gemogen

Auto-importeur Pon is op zoek naar tientallen Volkswagens die nooit de weg op hadden gemogen. De auto's, die tussen 2006 en 2018 zijn verkocht, bevatten testonderdelen, waardoor ze mogelijk onveilig zijn.

Economieredactie 24-06-19, 08:58

Volgens het Financieel Dagblad zouden er zo'n 150 testauto's op de Nederlandse markt zijn terechtgekomen. Inmiddels zijn er zestig van teruggevonden. In Nederland rijden dus nog tientallen ‘onveilige' testauto’s rond, zo bevestigt een woordvoerder van Pon aan deze site.

De auto-importeur zegt dat het op verzoek van Volkswagen bepaalde modellen probeert te traceren en terug te roepen. Pon zelf verkocht drie van zulke auto's. De rest is via import in Nederland terechtgekomen.

Spookauto's
Het bedrijf is al maanden op zoek naar de spookauto’s. Eigenaren krijgen 150 procent van de dagwaarde van de auto uitgekeerd. Het zou gaan om diverse modellen van de Duitse autofabrikant waaronder de Polo, de Passat en de nieuwere e-Golf.

Volkswagen heeft niet precies gedocumenteerd welke afwijkingen de modellen kunnen hebben. Hierdoor is het potentiële gevaar niet in te schatten. Daarom komt er ook geen grote terugroepactie volgens de Dienst Wegverkeer (RDW). Een woordvoerder van de RDW laat weten dat daarvoor het gevaar bekend moet zijn bij de fabrikant.

Omdat de RDW de zoektocht naar de spookmodellen dus niet ziet als een officiële terugroepactie mag Pon geen gebruik maken van het kentekenregister. Dat maakt de zoektocht erg lastig. Pon zegt dat het nu op zoek is naar de auto's via een uniek nummer dat iedere auto heeft, die zijn inmiddels bekend bij de Volkswagendealers. Pon verwacht niet alle auto’s terug te kunnen vinden.

(ABM FN) Autofabrikanten Volkswagen en Fiat Chrysler lopen het risico tegen ferme boetes aan te lopen als zij niet aan de emissie-eisen van de Europese Unie voldoen die vanaf 2021 gelden. Dit schreef persbureau Reuters woensdag.

Aan deze voorwaarden is volgens onderzoeksconsultant AlixPartners nog niet zo eenvoudig te voldoen.

Mochten de bedrijven niet in staat blijken de uitstoot aan kooldioxide voor een personenauto terug te brengen naar 95 gram per kilometer in 2021, dan kan Volkswagen een boete tegemoet zien die kan oplopen tot 1,83 miljard euro en Fiat Chrysler tot 746 miljoen euro.

Volkswagen heeft aangegeven aan de eisen te voldoen door te streven naar een grootschalige productie van elektrisch aangedreven auto's in 2020.

Fiat Chrysler gaf aan de goedkoopste methode te kiezen om aan de eisen te voldoen. Dat betekent dat het wellicht bepaalde boetes voor lief zal nemen.

Volgens het onderzoek van AlixPartners zijn Volvo en Toyota de enige grote autoproducenten die geen boeterisico lopen. Zij kunnen hun overschot aan emissierechten zelfs aan derden verkopen, aldus de studie.

(ABM FN-Dow Jones) Volkswagen heeft de prijsindicatie voor de geplande verkoop van aandelen van zijn truckbedrijf Traton vernauwd tot de onderkant van de eerder afgegeven bandbreedte. Dat meldde persbureau Bloomberg woensdag.

De beursgang, die mogelijk één van de grootste van dit jaar wordt in Europa, heeft een prijskaartje van 27,00 euro tot 28,00 euro per aandeel. Eerder zei Volkswagen te mikken op een prijs tussen 27,00 en 33,00 euro per aandeel, voor een belang van 10 procent.

In de nieuw aangegeven bandbreedte zijn de boeken geheel gedekt, met inbegrip van de zogenaamde overtoewijzigingsoptie, of 'greenshoe', volgens het persbureau.

Traton omvat onder andere de Zweedse bouwer van zware trucks Scania, vrachtwagenfabrikant MAN en de goedkopere Braziliaanse vrachtwagens van het merk Volkswagen.

Het boek moet donderdag rond twee uur sluiten en dat wordt het aandeel als het goed is vanaf vrijdag verhandelbaar op de beurs in Frankfurt en Stockholm. Er zijn 50 miljoen stukken aangeboden en de overtoewijzigingsoptie is nog eens 7,5 miljoen aandelen.

Volkswagen Group Further Expand CNG Mobility

Volkswagen Group and its industry partners from the gas supply, network, and filling station operation sectors will showcase their products and services at the 3rd CNG Mobility Days in Berlin (25–26 June 2019), presenting an overview of the current situation and the future of CNG. Volkswagen Group brands will also be exhibiting their latest CNG models in the passenger car, truck and bus segments.

In parallel with the advancing electrification of its fleet, Volkswagen Group and its brands continue to rely on CNG (Compressed Natural Gas) as an alternative drive technology for decarbonizing road transport, and the product range has been revised and expanded again with this in mind.

Volkswagen Group currently offers the widest selection of CNG vehicles of any manufacturer, by a substantial margin. At the annual general meeting in mid-May 2019, Herbert Diess, Chairman of the Board of Management of Volkswagen AG, announced that CNG will continue to play an important role for the Group in the future: “We are the global market leader for gas drive systems, and better positioned than our competitors. We also plan to continue further expanding and improving this technology.”

Using CNG as an energy source for automobiles meaningfully contributes to reducing emissions, as well as representing a cost-efficient customer alternative to petrol and diesel.

Mr Stephen Neumann, Volkswagen Group Representative for CNG Mobility said that “Volkswagen is committed to the Paris Climate Agreement. CNG has an important role to play in the alternative drive systems strategy that runs alongside the Group’s electrification offensive. It is sufficiently proven, immediately available, efficient and cost-effective. Furthermore, CNG cars are not affected by driving bans in city centres.” He added that “Refuelling with biomethane or e-gas results in an even better CO2 balance. Biomethane is obtained from organic residues, while e-gas is produced from excess green electricity (power-to-gas). Both can easily be fed into the gas network and mixed with any amount of fossil natural gas.”

Volkswagen Supervisory Board - Conny Schönhardt succeeds Birgit Dietze

There will be a change to the composition of employee representation on the Supervisory Board of Volkswagen Aktiengesellschaft. Conny Schönhardt who took on responsibility for Strategic and Political Planning on the management board of IG Metall in January 2019, is taking Birgit Dietze’s seat on the Supervisory Board as of 21 June 2019.

The two trade union representatives have already worked on tasks together in the VW employee representative committees over recent months. This included the assumption by Conny Schönhardt of responsibility in the trade union as company representative for Volkswagen and AUDI at the beginning of 2019.

Mr Jörg Hofmann, Chairman of IG Metall and Deputy Chairman of the Supervisory Board said that “Birgit Dietze’s term on the Supervisory Board coincided with eventful times, that were extremely challenging. The employee representatives thank Birgit for her valuable contribution, which Conny Schönhardt will undoubtedly build on going forward. Conny, with her specialism in pay scales, training and qualification, is assuming this office at exactly the right moment.”

Assuming duties in the Group constitutes a return to the company for Ms Schönhardt, who had worked here previously for several years. She concluded a commercial apprenticeship at VW Commercial Vehicles in the mid-1990s and then worked on the assembly line.

Aandeel truckdivisie VW gaat 27 euro kosten

Gepubliceerd op 27 jun 2019 om 21:20 | Views: 130

WOLFSBURG (ANP/BLOOMBERG) - De vrachtwagen- en bussendivisie van automaker Volkswagen (VW) gaat voor 27 euro per aandeel naar de beurs. Dat is aan de onderkant van de bandbreedte die eerder voor Traton, zoals de divisie achter merken als MAN en Scania heet, was afgegeven.

Die prijsrange was in eerste instantie 27 euro tot 33 euro per aandeel, later aangescherpt naar 27 euro tot 28 euro. Traton maakt naar verwachting vrijdag zijn beursdebuut, met een opbrengst van bijna 1,6 miljard euro. De marktkapitalisatie is ongeveer 13,5 miljard euro.

Traton krijgt een notering in Frankfurt en Stockholm. Moederbedrijf VW wil wel een meerderheid van Traton in eigen handen houden. De opbrengst van de emissie kan worden gebruikt voor investeringen in de truckmerken, die kampen met stevige concurrentie van Daimler en Volvo.

VW: moeizame IPO Traton

Volkswagen heeft geld nodig, veel geld. De investeringen in elektrisch en autonoom rijden zijn fors. Daar bovenop worstelt de autoproducent ook nog met de voortetterende sjoemelaffaire (diesel).

Het Wolfsburgse concern heeft daarom de vrachtwagendivisie (MAN, Scania) afgesplitst van de VW Groep en brengt een minderheidsbelang naar de beurs: hier leest u daar meer over.

Inmiddels zijn meer details beschikbaar gekomen. De introductiekoers zal €27 per aandeel zijn en dat is toch licht tegenvallend gezien de eerder gestelde bandbreedte van €27 - €33.

VW denkt 57,5 miljoen stukken te kunnen herplaatsen (11,5%), waarmee de opbrengst rond de €1,5 miljard uit zal komen. Een en ander impliceert dat de gehele vrachtwagendivisie van VW een marktwaarde heeft van circa €14 miljard.

Disclaimer: Crum heeft geen posities in bovenvermelde fondsen.

POSITIEF
We zijn positief over dit aandeel. Eventueel eerste positie innemen
POSITIEF OP 28 JUN 2019 OM 07:15
Een wat moeizame plaatsing voor VW van de vrachtwagendivisie. Echter, het sentiment in de gehele automobiel- en vrachtwagensector is matig, dus al te grote conclusies zouden wij hieraan niet willen verbinden. VW is van de Duitse drie autoproducenten onze favoriet. Het aandeel kan voor een eerste, beperkte positie aangeschaft worden.

Volkswagen Group Commits Suppliers To Sustainability

As of 1st July 2019, the Volkswagen Group will introduce a worldwide Sustainability Rating for its suppliers. This enables the company to assess the sustainability conduct of its business partners in its supply chain with regard to risks relating to human rights, environmental protection and corruption. Dr Stefan Sommer, Board Member for Components and Procurement, said “We are convinced that a sustainable supplier network is a guarantee of long-term corporate success. Sustainability is becoming a decisive business factor”.

In a Sustainability Rating, the suppliers first provide a self-assessment of their sustainability conduct on the basis of a questionnaire and documents supplied. The data and documents are checked by qualified third parties. In case of doubt, on-site checks are carried out. If misconduct occurs in the areas of environmental/social affairs or corruption, these lead to exclusion from the award of contracts.

The sustainability requirements are described in the Volkswagen Group’s new “Code of Conduct for Business Partners”, which is binding for all companies in the supply chain. It refers to respect for human rights, compliance with occupational health and safety, environmental protection and the fight against corruption.
