Sustainability at Daimler

Sustainability is one of the basic principles of our corporate strategy as well as a benchmark for our success as a company. As a vehicle manufacturer with global operations, we face industry-specific challenges. To ensure that our business success is sustainable, we need to exploit the associated opportunities and minimize the risks. To this end, we have drawn up a Group-wide sustainability strategy, which is part of our corporate strategy and makes sustainability a fundamental corporate principle. Additional information on sustainability at Daimler can be found in the “Non-Financial Report” section of this Annual Report. (See Sustainability at Daimler) The “Non-Financial Report” is also available on the Internet at The new Daimler Sustainability Report for financial year 2017 will available on the Group’s website in late March 2018.
