Through the Audi Volunteers (“Audi Ehrensache”) initiative, employees can now suggest regional projects they would like to implement in cooperation with charitable organizations. The Corporate Responsibility committees at each site will subsequently decide how to distribute the funds. The company has long supported its employees in their efforts to help refugees. Volunteers recently renovated homes for underage migrants and organized excursions for refugee children.
The automobile manufacturer is also considering ways to offer refugees long‑term job prospects. The goal is to design the efforts to be both targeted and sustainable. Intensive discussions for this are currently underway.
