Responsible conduct has long formed an integral part of Audi's identity. For the brand with four rings, responsible entrepreneurship implies that each and every decision must also consider the potential consequences. Audi operates in a sustainable manner, in order to remain a good employer, maintain competitiveness, enthuse customers, protect the environment and secure a viable future for subsequent generations. This gives the famous slogan "Vorsprung durch Technik" a new dimension that goes far beyond our products.
Our environmental objectives are continuously monitored and reported to our head office in Germany where a benchmark is drawn up. Regular meetings are organised in order to present the best available technology, such as our heat pump, thus enabling other factories to adopt these projects or research them further. Audi attaches considerable importance to the protection of the environment, optimum efficiency and the economical use of natural resources in all its departments. Each car is tested for ecological durability throughout its entire lifespan - during development and production, the utilisation phase and ultimately the recycling of its components. This is essential in achieving our CO₂-neutral mobility objective. Audi Brussels has been holding the EMAS (Eco-Management and Audit Scheme) certification for more than ten years. This proves that the environmental protection measures introduced by the plant are bearing fruit. It is not only Europe, but also the Brussels-Capital Region that rates the Audi plant highly: according to the Region’s certification system, the Audi plant is an "eco-dynamic company" with a top three-star rating.
