Together4Integrity – T4I for short – is based on the five principles of ECI’s High Quality E&C Programme Framework. These principles relate to strategy, risk management, culture of integrity, speak-up environment and resolute accountability. This fully integrated initiative is designed to reach about 850 entities and the minds and hearts of 670,000 employees, creating sustainable governance, risk and compliance structures. Tobias Heine, Head of T4I and Chief Integrity Officer at Volkswagen AG, will share how the T4I programme plays an integral and central role at Volkswagen and how it supports a corporate culture that enables every employee to act with integrity and in accordance with rules at all times. He will also discuss how the Volkswagen Group created and is piloting an integrity index as a measurement and change management tool.
