During the COVID-19 pandemic, Audi is supporting medical and social institutions in its home regions and providing five million euros in emergency aid at the national and international level.
The Board of Management of AUDI AG and the Works Councils have now launched this package which also includes over 600,000 for hospitals in Ingolstadt and Neckarsulm.
Markus Duesmann, Chairman of the Board of Management of AUDI AG, said: “The corona pandemic presents extreme challenges for all of us worldwide – for us as a company and for society as a whole.
“I would like to thank all the Audi employees who are looking ahead, doing their bit and helping where they are needed in this extraordinary time. I would also like to thank all those people who are maintaining business operations at our worldwide sites.
“I am convinced that things will continue for the Audi employees also after the crisis is over. At the moment, one thing counts above all: the health of our employees, their families and society as a whole. And to protect it, we need to flatten the infection curve.”
Peter Mosch, Chairman of the General Works Council of AUDI AG, added: “The willingness of our team to help in the corona crisis is enormous.
“Everyone wants to do their bit to help shape a secure future after the crisis. By playing an active role in the matter of donations, we are meeting our great responsibility towards the regions of our sites.”
