For Daimler, economic success and social responsibility go hand in hand. To us, responsible action means that we get very involved in the future of society all over the world. We orient our actions to our values and local needs. In 2013 we invested a total of more than €60 million in funding for non-profit organizations and sponsorship of socially beneficial projects. This is supplemented by activities in the areas of Corporate Volunteering and foundations as well as projects which we ourselves initiate.
Our support focuses on areas connected to our role as a “good neighbor” at our facilities around the world. On the other hand, we also get involved in projects that enable us to put our special skills and key expertise as an automaker to good use. The activities focus on areas which include science, technology, and the environment; education and traffic safety; art and culture; charitable projects and community projects, as well as the societal and political dialog.
