Stuttgart/Magdeburg, Germany – Daimler has established a Sustainability Board at top management level, thus grouping together the company’s existing management functions in the three areas of sustainability: economy, ecology, and society.
Under the lead of Dr. Rüdiger Grube, Board of Management member of Daimler AG responsible for Group Development and Corporate Strategy, the Sustainability Board coordinates all sustainability measures throughout the Group and provides implementation support for the operative sectors. This newly created board thus supplements the already existing management structures within the Group, for example in Corporate Environmental Protection, in the Legal & Compliance department with the Business Practices Office, or in the Human Resources sector with the Global Diversity Office.
Dr. Dieter Zetsche, Chairman of the Board of Management of Daimler AG and Head of Mercedes-Benz-Cars: “With the Sustainability Board, the responsibility of our executives for sustainable action is now also represented in the organizational structure of the company. That is how we strengthen the interplay of all our ecological, social and economical activities concerning sustainability.”
