MAN publishes Corporate Responsibility Report 2014

New online report with more direct approach towards target groups

MAN for the first time charts a new course in presenting its achievements in corporate responsibility in an online report. The company gives its report a new innovative shape, presenting its activities in the field of sustainability under the title “Corporate Responsibility Report 2014”: The website features a large variety of interesting facts, site examples, and international impressions for readers, providing an innovative multimedia report on the 2014 CR activities. In addition to its central online presence, the MAN Group’s CR activities are also available in its CR Journal in printed form and as pdf-format. The MAN 2014 GRI Report is the first one to fulfill the new G4 guidelines of the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI). With its three different formats, MAN offers its stakeholders a target-group-oriented and thus more efficient CR Report.

On the occasion of the 60-year anniversary of SOS Children’s Village in Germany, the new CR Report was presented at the SOS Children’s Village Ammersee-Lech in Dießen. MAN and SOS Children’s Village enjoy a long-standing partnership.

New CR Strategy 2020+
In the 2014 reporting period, MAN realigned its CR Strategy in the wake of global challenges such as climate change or increasing urbanization. The result is MAN’s “CR Strategy 2020+”. It places an increased emphasis on the supply chain, the service life of products, and the topic of intelligent mobility. When it comes to responsibility, MAN was quite successful in the reporting period. The Company not only managed a 19-percent reduction in CO2 emissions at production sites compared to 2008; it also convinced its expert audience when showcasing its products at the key trade fairs IAA Commercial Vehicles and the maritime trade fair SMM in 2014.

SOS Children’s Villages and MAN – strong partners SOS Children’s Village and MAN have been partners for more than seven years. It all started with a vocational training center in Ethiopia and has now become a strong partnership: Whether donating funds and supplies, transferring knowledge, or employee volunteering – MAN has shown it is a partner that SOS Children’s Villages can count on, making a valuable contribution to educational programs aimed at children and young people. In 2013 MAN extended its partnership for another three years with an annual donation of €150,000.
