Stuttgart – Ola Källenius, Chairman of the Board of Management of #Daimler AG and Mercedes-Benz AG, and Martin Daum, Member of the Board of Management of #Daimler AG and Chairman of the Board of Management of #Daimler Truck AG, have honoured the American steel supplier #bigriversteel (BRS) for the exceptionally sustainable production of steel. By using recycled steel scrap and renewable energy, #bigriversteel is able to reduce the CO2 emissions for Mercedes-Benz products in steel manufacturing by more than 70% compared to the traditional blast furnace route. In addition, the partner has set up a closed cycle in which the sheet-steel offcuts generated during production are fully recycled. The #bigriversteel plant in Osceola, Arkansas, is the first steel production facility to achieve LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) certification. Steel is a core component in vehicle construction and is very energy-intensive to produce.
Ola Källenius: "We are well on track for executing our sustainable business strategy. In close cooperation with our suppliers, we sharpened our focus on sustainability along the entire supply chain. Together we want to keep exceeding the expectations of our customers by taking technology, quality, and sustainability to a new level. "

To #Daimler, sustainability means creating value for all stakeholders on a lasting basis: customers, employees, investors, business partners and society as a whole. The basis for this is Daimler's sustainable business strategy. In this, the company takes responsibility for the economic, ecological and social effects of its business activities and looks at the entire value chain.
