The Mercedes-Benz Group AG has appointed Dr Jürgen Gleichauf as its Human Rights Officer. He assumes the newly created role in addition to his function as the company’s Chief Compliance Officer.
“Our systematic efforts for the protection of human rights began early on, with our Human Rights Respect System. By appointing a Human Rights Officer, we are complying with a recommendation in the German Supply Chain Due Diligence Act. In doing so, we are now defining the responsibility for monitoring human rights due diligence at Mercedes-Benz in the top management. Jürgen Gleichauf is an accomplished compliance expert. In the coming years, we will continue to expand our commitment to human rights with him as our Human Rights Officer.”
