About the Foundation

Sustainable entrepreneurial behavior, which takes responsibility for society and the environment as well as for the economy as a whole, is one of the fundamental principles of AUDI AG business activity. The AUDI AG underpinned this interdisciplinary and very complex responsibility for ten years now by establishing the Audi Environmental Foundation as a not-for-profit company. Voluntary action in the fields of ecology, social affairs and economics, which goes beyond the limits of legal obligations, is the core requirement for the commitment of Audi Environmental Foundation GmbH.

The Audi Enviromental Foundation


The foundation was founded on 1st December 2009 with its entry in the commercial register (HR) of the Ingolstadt District Court in Germany (HR B 5331).


The Foundation is financed by interest income from the investment of capital and donations.
