This is our second statement pursuant to the Act and represents our work completed with the financial year which ended 31 December 2017. This statement also incorporates the statement of VWAG, which sets out the global Volkswagen group’s approach, processes and principles to combat slavery and human trafficking. The VWAG statement is a global statement which is updated annually. Where applicable, VWGUK has adopted these or similar processes in its operations in the UK.
