Human beings can only overcome the major social and environmental challenges we face, such as climate change and increasing urbanization, by working together. We at Daimler strive to achieve such cooperation by contributing our expertise to the social dialog and by working together with others to create solutions. We are guided by the vision of utilizing exemplary formats for political dialog that allow us to establish ourselves as a leading corporate citizen in the automotive industry. We seek to actively participate in the political and public opinion-shaping process as a trustworthy partner.
SPURWECHSEL — We are changing lanes
We communicate with our stakeholders reliably and on the basis of facts
We consider it important to precisely understand the interests and expectations of our stakeholders. It’s the only way we can determine what our shared positions are so that we can initiate corresponding projects and measures. Our activities for representing our political interests are always aligned with our most important positions as a company. We have developed a “360-degree process” to determine what these are. This process takes both internal and external expectations into consideration. Furthermore, we always communicate with our stakeholders reliably and on the basis of facts.
A constructive international political dialog in our worldwide markets is essential for the sustainability of our business operations. Through our broadly based international network, we are safeguarding our dialog with the political stakeholders. When planning new projects or addressing location-specific topics, we also communicate with local stakeholders so that we can find acceptable solutions and create conditions that benefit everyone concerned.
