One of the key principles of the Daimler Group is to participate in the local communities where we do business.
Mercedes-Benz Australia/Pacific Pty Ltd is firmly committed to corporate citizenship. This philosophy encompasses all stakeholders, communities, customers and business partners.
Mercedes-Benz Australia/Pacific Pty Ltd has two pillars of social commitment, defined as sponsorship and philanthropy.
Mercedes-Benz Australia/Pacific Pty Ltd takes a dynamic approach towards sponsorship. We make a distinction in these activities between those on the corporate level and those focusing on particular brands in our portfolio such as Mercedes-Benz, Smart and Freightliner.
Corporate sponsorship focuses on community-related issues and subjects suited to the company as a whole.
Brand sponsorship is target group-oriented and focuses on marketing particular brands as well as defining brand image.
Mercedes-Benz Australia/Pacific Pty Ltd also supports numerous community activities and charitable causes through its philanthropy.
