Multinational companies such as Volkswagen should not only be subject to law, but also comply with ethical, environmental and societal standards. Secrecy, unequal treatment of customers and spreading misleading information reveal a pathological corporate culture. Volkswagen presented itself as a model firm, and it must now meet the expectations of its European customers.
