  Volkswagen (VW) is a large automobile manufacturing and marketing company, which was shamefully guilty of using software devices to escape stricter air pollution laws in the US and Europe. Since air pollution laws are directly connected with the quality of air breathed by citizens, polluting it with intentional manipulation of quality tests is an ethical misconduct. The company deliberately used software devices, also called as cheat device in cars which were capable of enveloping the emission norms while being tested, and returning to its original polluting standards after testing. The dilemma leads the company to be severely guilty of the repercussions following the release of toxic gas in the US and Europe, subsequently destroying the chances of citizens breathing fresh air. VW is accused of polluting the air quality, further deteriorating the breathable air, escaping strict air pollution norms, and bribing officials for passing its cars as fit for the road.


  VW is a large company, with many shareholders, debtors, investors, and owners, for which it needs to constantly serve and produce profitable results. The pressure of consistent performance, even in times of severe distress and compressing economies, is a realistic burden for the company to find ways of remaining profitable at costs that are mere externalities. The company invested huge amount of capital in the US to compete with larger brands like Toyota, and hence derived a way of escaping emission norms by attaching a defeat device in the cars (Hotten, 2015). This device helped the cars to pass the emission tests and show its emission within limits when it is way beyond the mentioned threshold. Increasing pressure on the company to remain competitive, deliver profits to shareholders, retain market share, and remain relevant as a brand are counted as some of the intangible and seeded reasons for the scandal to arise. The very intent of the device to escape strict emission norms, which would allow it to sell more cars to gain more profit is the fundamental reason interpreted by all investigators. Thus, the invention of the device and its alleged assimilation into the car proves the conscious attempt to evade emission requirements at the expense of increasing pollution, increasing health risks for US and Europe citizens, and by breaching emission laws.

  The other factor that could be traced to motivate such unethical practice is the constant desire for profit, even when it is normal and comfortable to remain stagnant because of the overall market scenario. During times of economic distress, ethics are more likely to be breached but those corporations who remain content and carry on with their business without breaching ethical conduct have a long life and remain relevant as a brand. Such corporations retain tremendous trust of their customers and dealers, and the relationship is not terminated even when large issues emerge.
