Lively discussions are an important part of the annual Sustainability Dialogue in Stuttgart. In addition to the traditional workshops covering a wide range of sustainability topics, the event in 2017 focused on the transformation of the world of work.
It was already the tenth time that Daimler employees shared ideas with stakeholders from the fields of politics, science, and society about subjects including urban mobility, climate protection, digitalization, and human rights. “I am very happy that the event format itself has proved to be sustainable. Our tenth Sustainability Dialogue is perhaps the most important one to date,” said Dieter Zetsche in his keynote address at the start of the event.
More than 200 participants gathered in seven working groups to discuss topics such as the challenges in the field of environment, the Group’s electric drive strategy, the respect for human rights in supply chains, and data protection from the customer’s point of view. Right in the middle: The Co-Chairs of the Daimler Sustainability Board Renata Jungo Brüngger and Ola Källenius as well as Director of Human Resources Wilfried Porth.The agreed results of the working groups will be consequently tracked.
