At Mercedes-Benz Group, integrity, compliance, and legal affairs are combined into a single executive division. The Integrity and Legal Affairs division supports all of our corporate units in their efforts to embed these topics in our daily business activities.
The employees of Integrity Management are responsible for creating the basis for a shared understanding of integrity, promoting ethical behavior within the company, and further developing it with target-group-specific measures. The goal is to identify and avoid potential risks due to unethical behaviour, and thus contribute to the long-term success of the company and its reputation as a trustworthy partner. The head of Integrity & Sustainability Management reports directly to the Board of Management member for Integrity and Legal Affairs.
The unit is supported by the Integrity Network. In the network, employees from the individual companies, business units, and functional business units of Mercedes-Benz Group are involved in regular exchange, in order to permanently embed integrity into daily business operations. The network also develops and implements concrete measures, which range from dialog events and management messages to integrity training courses.
