Version 5

    Integrity and compliance provide the foundations for our business and for collaboration with our partners in an atmosphere of trust. That only works if company, employees and business partners have a common understanding of values, and all work in unison.

    With our Business Partner Standards, we therefore have compiled the ethical principles that hold true for us, and what we expect from our business partners.  This includes compliance with laws and technical regulations as well as for example the responsible handling of data, respect for human rights and the alignment of actions with our corporate principles. The Business Partner Standards apply to all partners equally, for example to suppliers, sales partners, sponsorship partners and brand ambassadors, joint-venture partners or licensees.

    "Our sustainable business strategy is based on integrity and compliance. A shared understanding of values also forms the foundation for successful collaboration with our partners."

    Renata Jungo Brüngger, Member of the Board of Management of Mercedes-Benz Group AG, Integrity, Governance & Sustainability.

    We are committed to taking an active part in ensuring that our standards are met and also demand this of our partners. For us, that is the prerequisite for successful collaboration.

    Please convey the contents of these Business Partner Standards to your employees and actively encourage compliance with these requirements. The Business Partner Standards are available in German and English here on our corporate website
