Innovation, development and safety
The key objectives associated with sustainable mobility include the reduction of fuel consumption and CO2 emissions, the minimization of other pollutant emissions, and the further optimization of our vehicles’ safety features. Daimler has made significant progress in all of these areas over the last few years and will continue to do so in the future. To this end, approximately 18,000 men and women are currently employed by our research and development departments. At the moment, our development activities are centered on achieving further reductions in CO2 emissions. In order to achieve this goal, the Group is focusing on two fields of activity: vehicles and powertrains on the one hand (core activities), and fuels on the other (support activities).
