In the Daimler Truck Group, we rely on a systematic approach to implementing human rights due diligence, the Human Rights Compliance Management System (Human Rights CMS).
With our Human Rights CMS, we comply with our human rights due diligence, which is based on requirements from internationally recognised standards, applicable laws and regulations as well as our common understanding of values at Daimler Truck.
The Human Rights CMS comprises fundamental principles and measures to promote compliant behaviour in the Group companies and majority interests as well as along our value chain. The Human Rights CMS consists of seven elements that build on each other.
Publication of our Declaration of Principles for Social Responsibility and Human Rights as a supplement to the requirements for compliance with human rights from our Code of Conduct
Respect for human rights and ensure the implementation of human rights due diligence
Our sustainability department works interdisciplinary with relevant departments, e.g. central purchasing department
Creating transparency with our risk analysis in our own Group companies and majority shareholdings as well as in the supply chains
Supply chain due diligence and raw material analysis are an integral part of the Human Rights CMS; compliance measures are tailored to the identified human rights risk areas
Conveying through mandatory and target group-specific web-based training for Daimler Truck employees, as well as raising awareness among our business partners
Ongoing documentation of the individual process steps, as well as a regular effectiveness check of the Human Rights CMS
Daimler Truck is committed to the responsible sourcing of production and non-production materials as well as services.
We purchase our raw materials, components and services from suppliers all over the world. It is therefore clear that: Our responsibility does not end at the factory gates. We expect our suppliers to adhere with international human rights standards.
