Information on Corporate Governance Practices

The business operations of the Audi Group are based on the following corporate governance practices, implemented beyond the requirements laid down by law.

Audi Code of Conduct

The Audi Code of Conduct was thoroughly revised in 2017. It lays down the key principles that apply to day-to-day work in the Company. We therefore express how people at Audi perceive themselves and the fundamental rules that govern their actions. Above all we provide guidance, advice and support on ethical behavior at the workplace, as a business partner and as a member of society. The Code of Conduct is aligned with that of the Volkswagen Group and applies Group-wide to Audi, as well as being mandatory for all employees, regardless of their position in the hierarchy. Since October 2017, all newly appointed employees have also received compulsory training on the Code of Conduct.

The Audi Code of Conduct is available for downloading here.

Corporate Policies / Board Directives

To maintain the Company’s sustainable, long-term ability to compete, risks in the day-to-day activities should be avoided. Through its Corporate Policies, Audi ensures that existing laws are complied with and that entrepreneurial risks are avoided.

Because the Corporate Policies apply to all employees across the whole Company, these policies also have the function of protecting employees, assets and not least the Company’s reputation.

Since April 2017, a process has been under way to replace the existing Board Directives with new Corporate Policies. Upon conclusion of the consolidation process and after the transitional period at the end of 2018, there will be exclusively Corporate Policies, alongside Volkswagen Group Policies and Audi Brand Group Policies.

The Corporate Policies/Board Directives as well as other Company stipulations are available to all employees on Audi mynet (Knowledge Center — Corporate Regulations).
