Dialogue-centred and self-critical: Volkswagen Group's sustainability magazine Shift wins international awards

04/08/2017
"Shift. The Volkswagen Sustainability Magazine" is receiving broad acclaim within the communications sector and has been honoured with prestigious communication and design awards. The fundamental idea behind the Group's newly created magazine is a frank, self-critical and dialogue-centred approach to communication with external experts and representatives of interest groups. Shift thus symbolises the new beginning in the Volkswagen Group's sustainability management and stakeholder communication in the wake of the diesel crisis.

The magazine Shift has won a silver medal in the largest European communication competition, the Best of Content Marketing Award (BCM Award). In the 'Econ Awards Unternehmenskommunikation' for corporate communication, the magazine is on this year's shortlist.
