We are convinced that companies stay successful only if their actions are ethical and legally responsible. This is especially the case during times of turmoil and transformation such as those we are experiencing today. Integrity and compliance are therefore top priorities at Daimler.
Integrity is one of our four corporate values, the others being respect, passion, and discipline. Together, they form the foundation of our business activities. At Daimler, ethical behavior means doing the right thing. For us, this includes adhering to laws, aligning our activities with our corporate values, and following our inner compass.
SPURWECHSEL — We are changing lanes
Our five corporate principles guide our behavior
We encourage and enable our employees to consistently uphold our corporate values. They are given orientation by our Integrity Code, which is valid throughout the Group. It defines guidelines for our conduct and helps us make the right decisions — because ethical behavior is especially important in situations where the regulations are unclear or can be interpreted in different ways.
The key element of our Integrity Code consists of our five corporate principles. They provide orientation and are to be put into practice by all of our employees:
- We are profitable and are committed to people and the environment.
- We act responsibly and respect the rules.
- We address issues openly and stand for transparency.
- Fairness and respect are the foundation of our collaboration.
- We practice diversity.
