For us, product responsibility means offering as much customer utility as possible while at the same time maintaining the highest safety standards and setting benchmarks when it comes to environmental and climate compatibility. Daimler’s Environmental Guidelines are the binding standard for our actions when it comes to the environment. The second guideline stipulates that we develop products that are exceptionally ecologically sound within their respective market segments.
Daimler ensures outstanding product quality, which includes meeting demanding environmental standards and conserving natural resources. Our Design for Environment measures therefore take the entire product lifecycle into account – from development, production, and product use all the way to recycling and disposal. A key focus of our research and development work is continuous improvement of our products’ environmental compatibility. We have already scored many successes in this endeavor and will continue to rigorously follow this path in the future.
Environmental management in product development. The environmental impact of our vehicles and the requirements regarding their environmental compatibility are integral aspects of automobile development at Daimler and are discussed and implemented by the corresponding committees. Environmentally responsible product development is also a topic addressed by our Corporate Environmental Council, which takes a Group-wide approach to environmental issues. The vehicle specifications and the quality gates in the development process document the products’ environmental impact and requirements during the entire product creation process.
Mercedes-Benz Cars not only meets all the requirements that are stipulated by ISO 14001 and EMAS; its product development processes also fully comply with the international ISO TR 14062 environmental standard and the expanded criteria that have been defined by TÜV Management Service GmbH.
