The automotive industry and politics before and after the emissions scandal – we will be discussing this with three top-class experts on December 3rd, 2018, on the eve of the 2018 Handelsblatt Automotive Summit at the Volkswagen ZeitHaus automotive museum.
Even two years after VW paid a penalty of 15 billion dollars in the US and the recall is almost complete, the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is still finding rigged software. What have politicians and companies learned? How have company values changed? What kinds of controls are being introduced by management? How will employees be trained in the future? Do companies only care about complying with regulations or also about building cars to be as clean as possible?
Join us in the discussion.
