SUSTAINABILITY: BETTER TODAY BETTER TOMORROW

At Mercedes Benz India, we continuously try to emphasis on the local issues where communities are benefited and sustained. Engaging local people in every project is a key aspect for its successful implementation. We enable local people to actively participate in the project activities, wherein their inputs are valued the most. Our key motive is to improve the quality of education, provide infrastructural facilities, provide healthier lives to the marginalized people and facilitate the local community with clean and safe drinking water systems.


As an environmentally sensitive organization, our foremost concern is to give something back to the nature that we constantly thrive upon. Natural resources are endlessly under pressure due to human interventions and damages they cause. Preserving these resources is very important, and therefore we are predominantly working to protect these resources in various possible ways.


We seek to implement such facilities which will focus on creating an impact on the society as well as on the people, which will reduce the gap between all stakeholders.

Unsafe and unhygienic birth practices, unclean water, poor nutrition and degraded and unsanitary environments are challenges to the public health systems. The majority of rural population are smallholders, laborers etc. with limited access to available natural resources. The basic nature of rural health problem is attributed to lack of health literature and health consciousness amongst the people. This has led to the unavoidable health issues, especially amongst the women from rural areas.

India is the fastest growing country and far behind most other countries when it comes to conserving the environment and the ecology. The number of environmental concerns have aggravated over the years. The major reason    s being the increased pollution, deforestation, loss of biodiversity, and various natural calamities that leads to severe climate changes.

The projects undertaken through MB India’s CSR have created a positive impact on the lives of the local communities and nearby surroundings, by combating negative effect of the increased carbon content in the atmosphere, thus reducing the effect of Global Warming.

MB India through its CSR is also supporting the people affected by the unprecedented natural calamities. The Chennai floods that occurred in 2015, led to major death tolls and destruction of the properties. To support the flood affected people, MB India contributed towards Chief Minister’s Relief Fund.
