Annual General Meeting of Volkswagen AG has neutral carbon footprint

The Annual General Meeting of Volkswagen AG in Berlin on May 14 has a neutral carbon footprint. The CO2 emissions generated as a result of travel to and from the venue and accommodation for the shareholders, employees and service providers, together with setup and dismantling for the event will be offset by purchasing carbon credits. This applies to the complete organization, including hospitality for several hundred participants. Climate protection projects in Columbia and Zimbabwe will receive support via the internationally respected provider South Pole.

 In Columbia, a reforestation project in a savanna landscape aimed at reestablishing a biologically diverse forest area is receiving support. In Zimbabwe, where Cyclone Idai caused catastrophic damage in March, support is being provided for a forest and wildlife conservation project which also generates additional sources of income for the local population. The projects meet numerous sustainability targets of the United Nations (UN) and fulfill international standards. They are regularly audited by independent organizations.
