Air quality

Materiality and goals

GRI 103-1/-2


Target horizon

Our objective is to ensure that our entire new vehicle fleet no longer has any relevant impact on nitrogen dioxide pollution in urban areas.


The Mercedes-Benz Group’s corporate responsibility as an automaker includes our efforts to bring individual mobility, climate protection and air quality into harmony. The air quality in cities is an important focus of our sense of responsibility for the environment. Legislators all over the world have set standards for emissions in order to regulate emissions of harmful substances such as nitrogen oxides and particulates and to reduce air pollution. These emission limit values have become ever more stringent over the past few years. We are continuously developing our technologies in order to remain below these limit values today and in the future.
