  • All employees and managers behave and act in an ethical and responsible manner

  • Exchange and dialogue on current integrity priorities

  • Feedback from integrity analyses is incorporated into measures designed to strengthen the culture of integrity


With its compliance activities, the Mercedes-Benz Group particularly pursues the following central goals:

  • Comply with anti-corruption regulations

  • Engage in and promote fair competition

Companies only stay successful if their actions are ethical and legally responsible. This is especially the case during times of upheaval and change like those that companies are currently experiencing. Hence, integrity and compliance are very important to the Mercedes-Benz Group.

Integrity is at the foundation of the business activities of the Mercedes-Benz Group. For the Group, ethical behaviour means doing the right thing. This includes observing laws, aligning activities with common principles and following the Group’s inner compass.
