In the spirit of "Arriving today – thinking about tomorrow" we aim to firmly integrate sustainability into everything we do, day after day.
This means, for instance, that we are devoted to the highest safety standards and the most environmentally friendly operation of our buses possible, but it doesn't stop there: We are just as committed to environmentally conscious production and vehicle development. However, to us sustainability also means finding innovative solutions for rapidly changing mobility requirements in an age of global urbanization and rising population numbers. This is why we use sustainable mobility concepts such as Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) for challenging transit conditions in urban areas.
Of course, alternative propulsion technologies such as electromobility are a key part of sustainability for us. We have been the technology leader in this area for more than 40 years. A shining example of this is our Mercedes-Benz Citaro G BlueTec Hybrid, the first hybrid bus that can cover longer distances with an electric drive and no diesel engine.
We firmly believe that the only companies to succeed for the long term will be those that practice sustainable, value-oriented management. Accordingly, we want to be profitable only while acting in the interests of our stakeholders, including employees, customers and society. We expect the same standards from our partners and suppliers.
Our responsibility is reflected in six focal areas ("sustainability aspects"). These focal areas are our employees, our products, the production, our business partners, our social commitment and integrity:
