The Advisory Board for Integrity and Corporate Responsibility

The Advisory Board for Integrity and Corporate Responsibility has been an important source of input for Daimler. The board’s independent members from the fields of science and business, as well as from civic organizations, utilize an external point of view to offer critical and constructive support for the integrity and corporate responsibility process at Daimler.

Board members have extensive experience with issues related to ethical conduct and transportation and environmental policy, and contribute their different points of view to discussions. The board holds regular meetings with members of the Board of Management and other Daimler executives. During the year under review, the Advisory Board also held a joint meeting with the Board of Management and the Supervisory Board. Meetings of the Advisory Board during the reporting year focused on current topics and challenges, including ethical aspects in connection with autonomous driving, methods for measuring progress with regard to integrity, the current debate on emissions, Daimler’s approach to respecting human rights, and the development of a management culture for the digital age.
