AUDI HUNGARIA Zrt. has been an important driver for the development of the Hungarian economy and the city of Győr since 1993. For Audi Hungaria, it is only natural to accept social responsibility and promote local cultural and sporting events with the goal of improving the quality of life in the region. Examples from the cultural scene include sponsorship of the Győr Ballet Ensemble, funding the Győr Philharmonic Orchestra and supporting various cultural events, such as the Jazz Terrace in Pannonhalma.
AUDI HUNGARIA Zrt. is also an important member of Győr’s sporting community. The company has been the main and name sponsor of the Győri AUDI ETO women’s handball team since 2006 and the name sponsor of the 5,500-seat Audi Aréna Győr.
As an acknowledgment of its social responsibility, the company launched its “Audi hilft” campaign in 2019, a unique initiative in the areas of education, social care, environmental protection and nature conservation. Seven regional institutions and civil organizations saw their dream come true as a result. Audi Hungaria has also been involved in health care in the region since the company’s founding. It has donated several times to the Petz Aladár County Hospital, and presented an Audi A3 Sedan* to the outpatient clinic operated by Győr’s primary care physicians. Audi Hungaria provided an Audi A4 Avant* to the Győr emergency medical services in 2017. The command center uses the vehicle primarily for special calls and trips to severely ill patients.
In 2020, Audi Hungaria contributed 100 million forints to the fight against the coronavirus in the region.The company made donations to six regional facilities in May 2020. The amount of 100 million forints was split between the Petz Aladár County Hospital in Győr, the Győr Lifesaving Foundation, the Győr District Medical Emergency Service, the Mosonmagyaróvár District Medical Emergency Service, the United Health and Social Institute Győr and the Homeless Outreach Service Nonprofit Kft. At the start of the coronavirus pandemic, the company assumed the total cost for the acquisition of two ventilators for the hospital in Győr. Audi Hungaria also donated special protective clothing for medical personnel.
The Széchenyi István University in Győr held the Formula Student Symposium with the support of Audi Hungaria for the sixth time in 2020. Luca Marmorini, former head of engine development for the Ferrari Formula 1 team, gave a lecture at the event. The international symposium, which was attended by roughly 440 students from 13 countries including the USA and Canada, was held online this year.
