As the inventor of the motor car, we are very conscious of the great responsibility we bear and have made sustainable, environmentally acceptable mobility an integral element of our business strategy. Environmentally responsible product design is set out in the Daimler AG environmental guidelines, and takes into account the entire product life cycle, from initial design to production, product utilisation, disposal and recycling.
After the vehicle utilisation phase, the basis for efficient end-of-life processing is recyclability, which is subject to ongoing improvement. This is the prerequisite for the efficient re-utilisation and reprocessing of valuable materials by our partners.
When it's time to part company from your vehicle, we ask you to return it to a depot in our take-back network. Mercedes-Benz provides a simple, free take-back service, and ensures the environmentally compatible recycling of your vehicle in compliance with legal requirements. By returning your vehicle, leading to the subsequent efficient recycling of the materials contained in it, you are making a valuable contribution towards completing the recycling cycle and protecting our valuable resources
