  • Board Member for Procurement Dr. Bernd Martens: “Sustainability in the ordering process is just as important as costs, quality and technology”
  • Start of ratings system with suppliers for the Audi e-tron* and the new Audi A3 

AUDI AG has introduced sustainability ratings for its suppliers this April. The objective is that in the future, orders will only be placed with suppliers that obtain a positive rating. Audi is therefore increasing its commitment to achieving a sustainable value chain. The ratings are based on checks carried out at the suppliers’ production plants as well as on self disclosure. The premium car manufacturer is starting the ratings system with the selection of suppliers for the new Audi e-tron* electric SUV and for the successor to the Audi A3.
