Social

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 a highly attractive employer. 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 and inclusion as well as on health and safety, on respecting data privacy, and on trainings. We want our employees to be ready for all tasks related to the ongoing transformation of its business for the future.

Respecting human rights. For us, respect for human rights is a fundamental component of responsible corporate governance. We expect this from our own business areas as well as from business partners. We are committed to the United Nations (UN) Guiding Principles of Social Responsibility and Human Rights and the German Federal Government’s National Action Plan on Business and Human Rights. We strive to work with associations, organizations and competitors wherever appropriate.

Our Declaration of Principles for Social Responsibility and Human Rights summarises our commitment to human rights. The declaration supplements and substantiates the requirements for compliance with human rights from our Code of Conduct and forms the basis for the implementation of internationally recognized human rights at Daimler Truck. In addition to the Business Partner Standards, it also defines the requirements for our business partners to respect and uphold internationally recognised human rights.

Raising awareness, informing, training: In order to ensure the best possible respect for human rights, we implement various measures worldwide. In our internal web-based training course, human rights issues are conveyed to Daimler Truck employees in the relevant working environment, depending on the specific tasks. We provide our business partners with the Compliance Awareness module to raise awareness of human rights issues.
