We take responsibility toward 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 we talk 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 things 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. We are firmly committed to the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights and the German government’s National Action Plan for Business and Human Rights. The respect of human rights is a fundamental component of responsible corporate governance for us. We expect our own business units to act accordingly, as well as by business partners and suppliers. Wherever appropriate, the Group strives to work together with various associations, organizations, and competitors to promote the responsible procurement of raw materials.
Our Principles of Social Responsibility and Human Rights summarise our long-standing commitment to human rights. The Principles are the binding basis for the implementation of human rights standards at Daimler Truck.
In this way, we are supplementing and further specifying the requirements for compliance with human rights in the Daimler Truck Integrity Code.
