Case Study- The Automotive Industry

The automotive industry is managing significant change with the need to continually improve sustainability and impact on the environment, changing consumer behaviours and expectations, and increasing internal economic pressures to cut costs.

Furthermore, the Automotive Industry is heavily regulated with stringent Financial compliance regulations around the leasing and financing of vehicles, conduct regulations around mis-selling and treating customers fairly, as well as other regulations surrounding vehicle performance. The Volkswagen Emission Scandal is a clear reminder of the financial penalties and reputational damage that can occur from risk and compliance management oversight.
