102-37Stakeholders’ involvement in remuneration AR 120 , 124 , 138The Supervisory Board decides on the system of remuneration for the Board of Management, reviews it regularly and determines the total individual remuneration of each member of the Board of Management with consideration of the ratio of Board of Management remuneration to the remuneration of the senior executives and the workforce as a whole, also with regard to development over time. In the event of significant changes in the relationship between the remuneration of the Board of Management and the comparison groups the Supervisory Board establishes the causes, and in the absence of objective reasons for the deviation adjusts the remuneration of the Board of Management as necessary, e.g. during the renewal of contracts with members of the Board of Management. In carrying out this review, the Presidential Committee and the Supervisory Board consult independent external advisors.

Proposals by the Supervisory Board of candidates for election by the Shareholders’ Meeting as members representing the shareholders of Daimler AG, for which the Nomination Committee makes recommendations, aim at fulfilling the overall requirements profile of the Supervisory Board as a whole. The Nomination Committee is composed of at least three members, who are elected by a majority of the votes cast by the members of the Supervisory Board representing the shareholders. It is the only Supervisory Board Committee consisting solely of members representing the shareholders and makes recommendations to the Supervisory Board concerning persons to be proposed for election as members of the Supervisory Board representing the shareholders at the Shareholders’ Meeting. In doing so, the Nomination Committee takes into consideration the requirements of the German law regulating equal participation of women and men in executive positions, the recommendations of the German Corporate Governance Code and the specific goals that the Supervisory Board has set for its own composition. The recommendations made by the Nomination Committee aim at fulfilling the overall requirements profile — including the skills profile for the entire Supervisory Board.

Management approach disclosures
SR 78-83 , 83-84 , 126 yes (AR)
 205-1:
Operations assessed for risks related to corruption
SR 79 , 83-84The reason why the information is not broken down per operation/business activity is because the reference point of our risk assessment is the entity level, meaning legal entity or management unit. By conducting the risk assessment every entity within the risk assessment scope receives a final risk rating including all operational activities. Our risk analyses show that the risk of corruption is especially high with regard to sales activities in high-risk countries. Accordingly, one focus of our anticorruption activities is on sales companies in high-risk countries (cf. pages 83 and 84), where we implement targeted risk-minimization measures.yes (AR)
 205-2:
Communication and training about anti-corruption policies and procedures
SR 77 , 80-82 , 84The reason why the information is not broken down by region (GRI 205-2 a & d): The controlling body of Daimler AG is the Supervisory Board. Because the Supervisory Board is organized into committees according to functional, rather than regional, criteria, there has been no need to make any regional distinctions with regard to further information or training measures. The members of the Supervisory Board bear sole responsibility for taking part in the educational and training measures that they need to perform their duties. In doing so, they receive support from Daimler AG in accordance with the recommendations of the German Corporate Governance Code.

The reason why no total number nor percentage is given and why the information is not broken down by type of business partner and region (GRI 205-2 c): Due to strategic reason we do not communicate the specifications regarding our business partners.

The reason why no percentage is given for the employees who received training (GRI 205-2 e): We publish the absolute number of employees who were trained in corruption prevention methods during the reporting year (cf. page 81-82). The cycles for these training courses are defined on the basis of the regularly determined training requirements. In doing so, Daimler pursues a training strategy that is target-group specific as well as risk-based. As a result, we do not consider percentages of our total workforce to be sufficiently meaningful. The employees do not all have the same training needs. Therefore, the total workforce should not be used as a reference point for determining the percentage of people participating in anticorruption training courses.

The reason why the information is not broken down by employee category and region (GRI 205-2 e): When we are determining training needs and planning the courses, we do not differentiate by region, but rather by aspects such as a unit’s business model, its location in a specific high-risk country, and its function. For this reason, we do not consider differentiation by employee category and region to be meaningful as a control and evaluation parameter for corruption-prevention measures. As a result, no such information is given.
yes (AR)
 205-3:
Confirmed incidents of corruption and actions taken
SR 79-80 , 87The reason why no information is given at GRI 205-3 b: On principle, Daimler AG does not disclose proceedings against natural persons, since convictions or resolutions under criminal law are not communicated to Daimler AG.

The reason why no information is given in GRI 205-3 c: The number of cases communicated here might enable others to draw conclusions about our business partners. We want to prevent that. This is also the reason why we are not publishing this information in the Sustainability Report.
