At Daimler Truck, we have a clear understanding of what kind of business we will or will not do. We do not give or take bribes.
Preventing and tackling corruption are key aspects of our compliance work. In order to continuously raise awareness of the significance of anti-corruption among our employees, we have launched various training and communication activities.
Our Anti-Corruption Compliance Program is based on our comprehensive Compliance Management System. A key component of this is the assessment of potential risks. In addition to internal information, such as a unit's business model, external factors are also considered here, e.g. the Corruption Perceptions Index from Transparency International. The results of this risk analysis form the basis for implementing our anti-corruption measures, which aim to prevent corruption in all business activities. Thereby, we place particular emphasis on sales companies in high-risk countries and business relationships with wholesalers and general distributors worldwide.
The local management is responsible for implementing the compliance measures in close cooperation with the central function “Legal & Compliance Daimler Truck”. In companies exposed to a high corruption risk, an independent “Legal & Compliance Officer” supports the management in implementing the Anti-Corruption Compliance Program. We regularly review the effectiveness of our measures and continuously improve our Anti-Corruption Compliance Program.
