We take responsibility towards society and our employees. Where we can make a contribution to change something for the better, we do it.
We are focusing on three areas:
Making road traffic safer.
Our vision is accident-free driving. When talking about trucks and buses, we need active safety systems above all to achieve this. We need to prevent accidents from happening in the first place.
To achieve this, we are constantly developing new safety systems that can support drivers in their daily work. Many of the tools that are now commonplace in our industry were invented and brought to market first by us. This includes, for example, our Active Sideguard Assist. We believe that automated driving will also contribute to greater safety on the roads. We are therefore pressing ahead with its development.
Being an employer of choice.
We want our teams to be proud when they talk about their work and their company. To achieve this goal, we have a great number of initiatives and activities for all employees in place, with a strong focus on diversity, equity and inclusion as well as on health and safety, and on employee development & support. We want our employees to be ready for all tasks related to the ongoing transformation of its business for the future.
Respect and support human rights.
We are committed to the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights and we place particular importance on the rights of the International Bill of Human Rights as well as the core labor standards of the International Labor Organization (ILO).
We are strongly committed to respect and support human rights and we expect the same from our business partners throughout the value chain.
We reaffirm our commitment in our Declaration of Principles on Social Responsibility and Human Rights. It complements our commitment to respect human rights in our Code of Conduct. We define our requirements for our business partners in our Business Partner Standards.
In order to meet our human rights due diligence obligations as a company, Daimler Truck set up a Human Rights Compliance Management System (Human Rights CMS) at the end of 2021 and continuously expanded it in accordance with the requirements of the German Supply Chain Due Diligence Act (SCDDA), which came into force in Germany in 2023.
