„DRIVING SUSTAINABILITY“ MEMORANDUM

Chamber of Industry and Commerce (DTIHK), partner companies and institutions. The project’s main milestone
was the „Driving Sustainability“ Memorandum, put together by the participating partners. It declares the

government and its institutions, calling for better conditions where sustainable activities of the aforementioned
companies could thrive. Thomas Schäfer, Board Chairman, signed the memorandum for ŠKODA AUTO.
