Abstract

Under the background of China's automobile market where the concept of environmental protection prevails, the representative traditional fuel vehicle company Audi is used to discuss the relationship between fuel vehicle companies and China's sustainable development policies. The purpose is to discover how traditional car companies should change their status quo in the twilight Chinese market of fuel vehicles. First, it is important to recognize the importance of China's sustainable development policy and corporate social responsibility and the government's high regard for it. The paper then examines Audi China's sustainability initiatives, including its efforts to reduce carbon emissions, improve energy efficiency, and promote electric vehicles. And this article also puts forward some suggestions on the measures that Audi China can take to deal with these challenges. And summed up the changes that Audi China should make under the environmental protection concept of the Chinese market.
