Sustainability analysis : Volkswagen gets a further downgrade

10/2/2015 Following the scandal around cheating emissions testing of diesel cars at Volkswagen, Inrate has reviewed the sustainability rating of the company.

For some years now, Inrate classified Volkswagen as a non-sustainable and non-investible. With the recent manipulations, Inrate has reconsidered the rating allocated to Volkswagen and assigned the worst grade of its sustainability assessment: D-.

It is not excluded that other carmakers also manipulated their anti-pollution test. In the months to come, Inrate will pay particular attention to the entire sector.
