The Whistleblower System at Volkswagen Group China

Whistleblower System

Welcome to the homepage of the Volkswagen China Whistleblower System.

Integrity and compliance with statutory and other requirements lay the foundation of a good reputation for Volkswagen and for the trust of our customers. They also contribute to the wellbeing of Group employees as well as to sustainable economic success, which should not be undermined by the risk of significant financial losses or criminal prosecution.

Making sure these goals are not jeopardized requires the establishment of a corporate culture based on integrity, as well as vigilance by all employees and their willingness to report potential irregularities and violations if reasonable suspicion exists. We must work together to achieve this. And that means we need your support. In order to live up to our aspirations even more effectively and to learn the right lessons from past events, the ombudsman system set up in 2006 has been developed further. We continue to do everything we can to process reports received quickly and objectively, and to offer whistleblowers a protected space.

We use the term “whistleblower system” to describe both internal and external contact points for persons wishing to report violations of regulations in connection with the Volkswagen Group together with the committees that support and monitor the work of these contact points. The Regional Investigation Office is the central contact point within the Company.
